HELPING and HONORING OUR VETERANS
The first program of the Builders Care NH Foundation is the Hammers for Veterans Auction.
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 need for renovation of existing residences to accommodate their disabilities is great. A wheelchair ramp, a remodeled bathroom, or the widening of doors removes barriers that are in place and impact the quality of life for our veterans.
In addition, armed services personnel who are deployed overseas often leave spouses and families at home to fend for themselves. If repair work needs to be done at the existing residence there often is a lack of resources and expertise to accomplish it.
The goal of the Hammers for Veterans Auction is to raise funds that will be used in providing professional construction related services to eligible New Hampshire veterans and their families. Members of the NHHBA have the expertise to provide professional construction services. The online auction, that takes place annually in March, is intended to help raise funds to assist in the purchase of materials.
