Roughly 37,000 veterans in the United States experience homelessness. Home Builders Institute wants to ensure that those who have courageously served in our military never find themselves out of work or living on the street. That is why we work closely with partners such as The Home Depot Foundation and Habitat for Humanity to ensure that service members leave the military prepared for their next chapter in civilian life. Our skilled trades training programs for transitioning military members and veterans are also available to their spouses and/or dependents.
With funding generously provided by The Home Depot Foundation, HBI operates tuition-free trades training programs on or near ten of the largest military bases across the country. HBI also provides comprehensive job placement support, with an 84% placement rate for this population.
