For United States military veterans, coming home is more than a journey of distance. Coming home can mean returning to a place that has changed very little, while the service member themselves have changed a great deal.
By 2020, nearly 40,000 veterans will have returned to Michigan, many of them to Kent County. These brave men and women have sacrificed so much to serve our country. However, a majority of veterans leave the military without having identified permanent housing or living arrangements. They deserve a place of peace and stability.
At Habitat Kent, we believe that every veteran deserves to be welcomed home to a place of peace, stability, and community. Our Veteran Program works to empower all veterans through homeownership opportunities, home repairs, and comradery-building events. Together we can give veterans the opportunity they need to build strong and stable lives.

Build the American dream that you fought for
We believe every veteran deserves to be welcomed home with dignity, honor, and respect. We are looking to partner with veterans and their families to build a new safe, stable, and affordable home.
We partner with veteran homeowners to repair their homes in need of critical roof repairs that may be too costly or physically challenging. Every veteran deserves to spend their lives in a safe, stable, and a healthy home.
