Building homes for heroes
For Veteran Voice
Wednesday, Dec. 17, was a beautiful late fall/early winter day in Hobe Sound, clear blue skies, cool temperatures and no humidity. Perfect for welcoming an American hero to his new mortgage-free home. Army Sgt. Jorge Gutierrez, his wife, Amina, his three children, Alejandro, 4; Allen, 3, and Jaden, 1, stepped into the home for the first time and were totally overwhelmed. The home is a two-story, three-bedroom, two-and-a-half bath, two-car garage, approximately 2,100 square feet.
The home was provided by Building Homes for Heroes and Chase Bank. The process starts out with Chase Bank offering a foreclosed home to Building Homes For Heroes. Upon acceptance by Building Homes For Heroes, Chase does the major exterior repairs as needed. Building Homes For Heroes customizes the interior for the servicemember’s special needs, such as bathrooms with grab bars, lowered sinks and wheelchair-sized doors. Kitchens are renovated for the same purpose. Once the veteran takes possession of the home he has to remain in the home for 10 years.
