Community Partnership

True Homes has formed an impactful housing and services partnership with Charlotte Bridge Home and Community Link. This innovative partnership makes it possible for individuals that have served our country to achieve the American Dream of becoming a homeowner. The True Homes team builds and the True Homes Foundation donates two homes per year into the partnership. The veterans who move into the homes are able to make successful transitions, to stabilize their housing costs and become a sustainable and strong member of the community.
