Beacon of Hope
This program was created to give back to our Veterans a basic need: a safe place to live. We hope to inspire our employees, customers and communities to come together to assist us in providing deserving veterans a "beacon of hope."
Beacon of Hope is a nationwide contest that rewards deserving veteran homeowners with new roofs. As part of Beacon's commitment to giving back to its communities, the contest is open to all military veterans, provided they have received an honorable or general discharge. The public can nominate an American veteran facing adversity on the Beacon of Hope website or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Nominations must include a photo and brief biography of the veteran, including their military branch, years of service, and why the nominee deserves a new roof. We are partnering with veteran-friendly roofing companies to deliver and install all necessary exterior roof repairs/replacements.
We do not just provide roofs on a house. We help to provide safe homes for deserving veterans who served and protected our country.
Beacon of Hope Contest 2019
We launched this initiative in 2019, and we are honored to be able to help improve the lives of veteran families across the U.S. With 142 contest submissions and over 4,000 votes, we had great interest from veterans and their local communities in the contest’s first year. We awarded six families with new roofs, and together with our partners helped to improve veteran families’ quality of lives. Roofs were installed in partnership with veteran-friendly roofing companies in Kansas, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Mexico, Minnesota and Virginia.
