COVID-19 Information and Resources for Our Veterans

We all need to do our part to slow the spread of Covid-19.

House of Heroes mission is to honor and serve our Military and Public Service Veterans through one-day home repairs.  Our mission for now is to do what we can to help keep these heroes safe from the current pandemic. We urge you all to stay home and wear a mask in public to help protect those that have protected us. We look forward to the day that we can once again honor service with service and help our Veterans in need.

“A hero is an ordinary individual who finds the strength to

persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles.”

- Christopher Reeve

Dear Friends of House of Heroes Connecticut,

These are frightening and trying times for us all. In the midst of the COVID-19 crisis, as we struggle with challenges we could not have imagined only a few short weeks ago, we are thankful to be reminded daily of the hero that lies deep down inside each and every one of us.

These reminders come via uplifting news stories, our social media feeds or by word of mouth. They are stories of tireless healthcare professionals persevering on behalf of their patients despite a lack of adequate personal protective equipment; of active-duty military and public safety personnel putting their lives on the line in the interest of protecting ours; and even of ordinary citizens going above and beyond, finding ever-creative ways to inspire and comfort those in need during this unprecedented time.

At House of Heroes Connecticut, we mourn for those who have lost their lives and their families whose lives have been forever altered. We pray that this historic pandemic ends sooner rather than later, halting the fear and returning some sense of normalcy. And we count our blessings daily, knowing that while the start to our 2020 project season has been postponed, we have so much to be thankful for and will soon once again be fulfilling our mission of helping military and public safety veterans in need.

And when we do, it will be because we have our very own group of everyday heroes who make our work possible – you. Your strength inspires us, your generosity sustains us, and your perseverance through this challenging time gives us confidence that when we get back to work, we will be better, stronger and more dedicated than ever to fulfilling our mission.

We encourage all of you to stay home and stay safe while we ride this out together, and to do what you can to check in on the needs and well-being of those most at risk, including your elderly neighbors and of course our beloved veterans. Please visit us regularly for updates on our plans, and thank you for your strength and loyal support of House of Heroes Connecticut.

Sincerely,

Carol May

Chair, HOHCT
