The members of the New Hampshire Home Builders Association care about those who have sacrificed for us all. That is why we have established the Hammers for Veterans Auction as the first program of our Builders Care NH Foundation.

New Hampshire veterans make up more than 10% of the state’s population. The number of veterans with disabilities is also growing.

Over one-third of service members who have returned from Iraq and Afghanistan suffer from some form of mental health disability including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), many have traumatic brain injuries, and others return with significant physical disabilities.

The following story is just one of many we expect to encounter as we move forward with this program. This is what drives us to help.

“There is a veteran living at the veteran’s home who needs help with a ramp to access his home in the community. The veteran, in a sweet love story, is unable to visit his wife and his home as it has no ramp. He would like to be able to “go home for dinner – or a movie night” occasionally instead of only visiting with her in the confines of the veterans home”.

Thanks to NHHBA member, Jim Higgins of #GulfbrookRenovations for helping with Mr. Manzione’s new ramp that will make it easier for him to use his scooter. We thank Mr. Manzione for his service as a medic in WWII in Germany.
