That legacy endures as Sears launches its 10th annual Heroes at Home campaign with Rebuilding Together to raise funds and assist military families in need by making critical home repairs and modifications. Rebuilding Together affiliates and Sears volunteers nationwide will complete dozens of projects this spring, adding to the nearly 1,700 rebuilds completed since the program launched a decade ago.

In 2010, the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) unveiled a strategic plan to move the needle on housing the nation’s homeless veterans. They set an ambitious goal – as a part of the Open Doors strategy – to have zero homeless veterans by the end of 2015. This concentrated effort has yielded some incredible results. As of January 2015, veteran homelessness had declined 36 percent since 2010, and unsheltered homelessness had fallen by 47 percent.
