Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) celebrated the donation of two new specially adapted custom homes to deserving warriors and their families by Homes For Our Troops (HFOT). During the Key Ceremony in Escondido, California, Marine Corps Cpl. Kionte Storey, and 1st Sgt. Ben Holmes, along with his wife Diana and their children, were presented with keys to brand-new homes.

“I am grateful that I will be able to come home to a place of my own, and, when it comes time, raise a family without financial stress,” said Storey.
“An adapted home means the freedom of mobility and the freedom to move,” Holmes said. “This home is going to enable me to take care of my kids.”
WWP Community Partnerships and Investments team representative Erin Tyson spoke about the critical importance of partnership and collaboration between the two organizations, and the impact it has made on the lives of warriors. WWP has been a proud partner of Homes For Our Troops since 2018.
“Housing insecurity affects millions of American Veterans and families – and we’ve seen firsthand the impact it makes on a Veteran’s life,” said Tyson. “We’re so proud to support Homes For Our Troops — they are the gold standard in adaptive housing construction for wounded warriors and their families. They have changed the lives of hundreds of severely injured post-9/11 Veterans.”
In June, WWP announced its support of over a dozen partner organizations, including Homes For Our Troops. Since 2012, WWP has partnered with and helped fund 200 organizations that assist wounded Veterans and families at the local and national level, connecting them with the resources they need to thrive in civilian life.
