HABITAT KENT VETERAN PROGRAM

We are teaming up with military and veteran families, volunteers and community
organizations to build a home for a veteran family who served our country proudly.
This year, Habitat Kent will complete its fourth Veteran Habitat Build home!

VETERAN HABITAT BUILD 

Habitat Kent launched the Veteran Build program in 2011 and has since completed 5 Veteran Build homes. The sixth being 1009 Alpine St. that will wrap up this summer. 

VETERAN HOME REPAIR 

Habitat Kent was one of the exclusive Habitat affiliates nationwide to be selected by the Home Depot Foundation for a Repair Corps partnership, which facilitates home repairs and renovations for local veteran homeowners. We have earned this distinct honor for three consecutive years. 

VET-HATS PROGRAM

In July 2014, Habitat Kent launched “Vet-Hats,” a program that seeks to mobilize veteran service and build bridges by uniting veteran and civilian volunteer teams on Habitat projects across Kent County.
