From HARDI’s earliest beginnings more than 50 years ago, we have always been dedicated to philanthropic giving.

In 2011, HARDI began its partnership to raise funds and awareness for Homes For Our Troops. In 2019, through member fundraised, cash donations and our Text to Give service, we raised a total of $192,384 in donations for Homes For Our Troops, our highest contribution to date!

Homes For Our Troops


Homes For Our Troops (HFOT) is a privately funded 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization that builds and donates specially adapted custom homes nationwide for severely injured post–9/11 Veterans to enable them to rebuild their lives. Most of these Veterans have sustained injuries including multiple limb amputations, partial or full paralysis, and/or severe traumatic brain injury (TBI). 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.

Since its inception in 2004, nearly 90 cents of every dollar has gone directly to their program services for Veterans. HFOT builds these homes where the Veteran chooses to live, and continues its relationship with the Veterans after home delivery to assist them with rebuilding their lives.

Operation HVAC

operation-hvac-2On July 30, 2016, HARDI agreed to support Homes For Our Troops through its next 100 builds over the next three years. For each home, HARDI members will provide all heating and cooling equipment and supplies for each home at an estimated value upwards of $1 million.

While it is an honor to support our Veterans, there is also a very practical reason for this partnership: with HARDI distributor members’ expertise in logistics and with the manufacturers’ HVACR knowledge and resources, HARDI members are in a position to acquire high-efficiency equipment for these homes, which can lower a Veteran’s utility costs and provide better indoor air quality.

HARDI will reach out to distributors in the areas where builds are scheduled. Any distributor that takes part will receive recognition on the HARDI website in thanks for their support of HFOT in its mission to build homes and rebuild lives.
