MISSION & HISTORY

FOUNDATION MISSION

For those wounded in combat, coming home can mean struggling with a housing situation that makes everyday tasks almost impossible, and there are few resources to make it better. At Jared Allen’s Homes for Wounded Warriors, our aim is to improve the lives of Veterans and their families by providing accessible, mortgage-free homes for service members injured in Iraq and Afghanistan. We partner with donors and local companies to fund, source, and build custom homes that transform lives by meeting each Veteran’s unique needs.

HOW IT ALL STARTED

Jared Allen’s Homes for Wounded Warriors was formed in October of 2009 by retired Minnesota Vikings defensive end Jared Allen after he returned home from his USO trip to US Military Bases in the Middle East. Jared was moved by the commitment, dedication, and sacrifices that our soldiers make every day to protect our freedom. He wanted to say thank you to every soldier in the only way that Jared knows how. By embracing the conflict and making a positive life-changing difference in the lives of those who need it most, Jared and his JAH4WW will help make life for wounded vets just a little bit easier.
