“Because they deserve better”

The lack of affordable housing is a problem from coast to coast. The problem is even more striking when we consider that 37,000 of those needing homes are military veterans who struggle despite their service to our country.

Mighty Hero Homes aims to right those wrongs with a national network of 450 veteran communities that have many on-site amenities and services, with connections to and support from off-site organizations. Each community is a “base,” with clusters of living quarters serving individuals, families, and ADA-compliant units for people with disabilities. Each base also has a commissary, activity centers, and the capacity to serve residents as they age.

Web Chick donated services to design the Mighty Hero Homes website, joining many other businesses to support the cause for homeless-veteran housing. 

Mighty Hero Homes, founded in 2018, is based in McDonough, Georgia, and is the first non-government organization dedicated exclusively to providing scalable, permanent housing for all homeless veterans. Founder Drew Walston has been an athlete, executive and developer, and has long been concerned about veterans and homelessness. He has assembled of team, many of them veterans, with expertise in development, chaplaincy, and other specialties.

The Mighty Hero Homes Foundation, a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization, will recruit and empower local businesses, churches, and other civic organizations to sponsor each base resident, and will provide van service to transport residents to off-base activities. Through these links with the broader community, residents can establish relationships and become a real part of the community through invitations to houses of worship, local events, meals, and other activities.

In addition to a commissary and activities, each base will include a “Flag Hill” and other greenspace, commercial vegetable gardens (for local “base-to-table” service to restaurants and residents), K-9 training and foster care services, geriatric and elderly foster care, transportation services, on-base employment opportunities, in home laundry facilities, and space for special gatherings and fellowship activities. All bases will be fenced and guarded, and will be assets to their communities aa well as models for cooperative living. 

The Mighty Heroes Homes website includes base plans and amenities . It also include online shopping for company-branded gear and a link to make donations to Mighty Hero Homes.
