All Veterans are contributing and stable members of their communities by owning, renting and maintaining housing, for themselves and their families.
To honor the sacrifice of Veterans and their families, by lending a hand up in removing financial obstacles and supporting other needs to promote home ownership and stable housing.
Community – We believe that Veterans make up an important segment of our communities. The contribution and sacrifice of the Veteran and their family have provided security and safety to our country. In gratitude, their chosen community welcomes them and preserves their dignity, while inviting them to actively participate in their community.
Good stewardship – HWH will respectfully utilize public funds and donations by promoting and employing efficient and effective management practices. In addition, we will carefully utilize the time and talent of those working with HWH.
Always, the priority is to bring relief and provide financial assistance to Veterans seeking to secure stable housing through renting or home ownership and to support emergency needs and garner additional resources for the benefit of Veterans and their communities.
Diversity - We believe that society in general benefits from the contributions of people with diverse personal characteristics (including but not limited to race, ethnicity, religion, language differences, skin color, parental status, age, gender, geographic location, physical, mental and developmental abilities, sexual orientation, gender identities, work and socio-economic status). We value diversity in leadership, staff, and volunteers as well as in all facets of the work of the organization. We strive to serve a diverse population of Veterans.
Collaboration - We value our partnerships with individuals, organizations, and coalitions and will work in a collaborative fashion. We encourage and promote effective partnerships between Realtors (working with specific Veterans applying for assistance), volunteers, staff, donors, community businesses/vendors offering education and services, and other Veteran serving organizations.
Transparency, Integrity and Excellence – We conduct our business with integrity, accountability, and open, and honest communication. We are committed to quality and excellence in all that we do.
Gratitude – We honor and value the enduring sacrifice made by all members of our military and the families that stand by their side. Some have given the ultimate sacrifice of life; others have returned with challenges that will have a profound effect on the rest of their lives. Many veterans put their lives and careers on-hold as they left their families behind, to bravely uphold our freedom and strengthen our democracy. There is no way to adequately repay Veterans for their service, but if we can lessen their stress and provide some comfort with our Veteran-centered programs, we have made a difference. We will forever be grateful for those who have served our military and our country.
