Veterans Build

Our Veterans Build programs serve eligible veterans in Monmouth County.

L.I.F.T. (Local Initiative for Troops)
This program is a collaboration with, and expansion of, Coastal Habitat’s L.I.F.T. (Local Initiative for Troops) Veteran Housing Repairs Program. Driven by volunteer power, donations, and fundraising events, the program completes veteran home repair and home upkeep projects at no cost to the veteran. Working together with Coastal Habitat, we will be able to support more veterans in Monmouth County.

Types of Projects

Even minor projects can be overwhelming and costly to a veteran homeowner with a low or fixed income. Our L.I.F.T. program can relieve concerns, and remedy safety and comfort issues.

Projects include critical home repairs such as ramp installation, railing repairs, widening walkways for wheelchairs, as well as general repairs and assistance with landscape upkeep.
