Big Year of Service Anticipated with Multiple New Partners on Board; No-Cost
Home Repair Projects for Veterans in Need to Commence April 2.
March 9, 2022 – House of Heroes Connecticut, the non-profit veterans service organization dedicated to
honoring the service and sacrifice of veterans in need with one-day, no-cost home repairs, is busily
preparing for its biggest veterans service project season ever with multiple new Project Partners in the
fold for 2022 prepared to help the organization fulfill its noble mission.
At least eight project weekends are planned for the spring, summer and fall, commencing Saturday,
April 2 with projects helping a Navy veteran in Waterbury and an Air Force veteran in Hamden. Students
from Quinnipiac University will assist, with skilled labor provided at no cost by Connecticut Carpenters
Carpenters Union Local 326 is one of multiple new or returning Project Partners this year whose
combined commitment shapes up to make 2022 the organization’s biggest year of service since its
founding in 2012. A major project with Local 326 is in the planning for Saturday, May 28, when in
recognition of Memorial Day Weekend House of Heroes Connecticut (HOHCT) hopes to serve, with the
invaluable volunteer assistance of union workers, as many as eight veterans in one day.
“This major day of service in partnership with our good friends with Local 326 will be our organization’s
single biggest undertaking, and biggest day of service, in its history,” said HOHCT President Steve
Cavanaugh. “Making this weekend of service a reality will be the culmination of a dream envisioned by
our late co-founder, Bill May, and represents our ultimate gift of service to those who served.”
New Project Partners for the 2022 service year include Coldwell Banker Realty Greater New Haven
Region; a pair of Knights of Columbus Assemblies, including The Honorable W. Patrick Donlin Assembly
2459 (New Haven area) and Bishop Fenwick Assembly 100 (Norwalk area); and TOPS Marketplace,
Southington. Returning confirmed Project Partners include Sikorsky, a Lockheed Martin Company;
Johnson Brunetti; and PCX Aerosystems. Additional partnerships are in the planning stages.
In addition to the April 2 and May 28 project dates, projects are tentatively being planned for Saturday,
April 23; Saturday, June 11; Saturday, August 27; Saturday, September 17; Saturday, October 15 and
Saturday, November 12. Project scheduling is fluid and subject to change as needs and opportunities
arise, demands change and negotiations with additional Project Partners evolve.
HOHCT Project Partners are crucial to the organization fulfilling its mission of serving those who served.
Project Partners, which can be private companies or community service organizations, provide critical
funding to sustain HOHCT’s work, with the added reward of enabling employees and members to give
back through a day of service to a veteran in need.
