Homes For Our Troops (HFOT), the national non-profit organization that builds and donates specially adapted custom homes nationwide for severely injured post-9/11 veterans, is partnering with AirMedCare Network (AMCN), the largest air ambulance membership network in the United States.
AMCN pledged $100,000 to assist Homes For Our Troops in building and donating specially adapted custom homes for severely injured post-9/11 veterans nationwide. The company is also committed to sharing HFOT’s mission with its more than three million network members.
“We are excited to welcome AirMedCare Network as a national partner,” said HFOT executive director Bill Ivey. “They are an outstanding organization, providing access to life-saving emergency care around the country. Their outstanding and enthusiastic support will help raise awareness about our organization and advance our mission of building and donating specially adapted custom homes for deserving veterans. We are looking forward to working closely with them as we build homes and rebuild lives.”
“With 11 percent of our network’s employees being former military, this is a cause that is particularly close to our hearts,” said AMCN vice president of membership Keith Hovey. “The culture within AMCN is one of service and assistance within the community. We’ve been looking to partner with an organization that mirrors this value. Homes For Our Troops exemplifies this belief by building homes and rebuilding lives.”
“These homes restore some of the freedom and independence our veterans sacrificed while defending our country, and enable them to focus on their family, recovery and rebuilding their lives. We look forward to working with them in this partnership,” Hovey added.
AirMedCare Network providers deliver world-class patient care to members from more than 320 air medical locations in 38 states. If a member has a medical emergency, the alliance of affiliated air ambulance helicopters and airplanes can provide medical transport, dramatically reducing travel time to an emergency treatment facility. Members face no out-of-pocket expenses in relation to their flight when flown by an AMCN provider.
