Homes for Heroes made an bigger appearance this year the North Bay Women's Expo with a booth right in front of the stage for maximum exposure. We met so many more of Sonoma County women in business and were able to share the benefits of Homes for Heroes with all. Of course, we always bring along our popcorn popper, raffle prizes, and photo booth so our new friends can feel the Hero spirit!
Being a part of the Santa Rosa Metro Chamber gives us the opportunity to meet new and long standing businesses all over Santa Rosa. Senior Helpers is a wonderful organization with the goal of giving our local senior citizens the support and care they need.
Stopping by our local fire houses and police stations to drop off Halloween candy before the holiday is upon us! We appreciate our Heroes keeping our neighborhoods safe so we treat them to some sweets!
KSRO put together a wonderful celebration and golf tournament to honor the Heroes who rose during the October 2017 wildfires. We held a tee booth with corned beef sliders, pub mix, Jameson shots, music, and more! Pat Kerrigan (pictured middle) ended the evening with raising more money through the live and silent auctions to go towards the Resilience Fund. #sonomacountystrong
First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes buying a forever home!
We had a great time talking to local brides, grooms, family and friends about Homes for Heroes as well as planning for making the next big step of buying a home once the wedding is done!
We love showing appreciation to our clients, Heroes, and business partners. Hosting a Fall mixer with food, drinks, and good times to celebrate a great summer of Hero events!
Out supporting our awesome Sheriff's Department at the Henry 1 Dedication. Sheriff Rob even flew in from a rope! Henry 1 is an extraordinary asset for Sonoma County and we were thrilled to celebrate it's arrival!
We helped put together the Hero Exhibit at the Sonoma County Fair!
We spent 12 afternoons in the exhibit with all of our local Heroes- CHP, Sonoma Sheriff, Santa Rosa Fire Department, Cal Fire, Air Force, Army, Marines, Navy, and more. We talked to the community everyday and shared homes for Heroes info along with a bag of popcorn!
We were honored to be a part of the Peace Officer Memorial at the Sheriff's Department. The Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office and Santa Rosa Police Department Honor Guard came together, with members of the Sheriff’s Office and their families, other law enforcement agencies, and the public to honor the sacrifice of the Deputies who have given their lives in the service of Sonoma County and nationwide.
Our Sonoma County CHP invited us to their quarterly trainings for a lunch & learn opportunity. We brought in pasta trays, salad, and garlic bread for them all to enjoy while we explained the benefits of homeownership and how Homes for Heroes can help!

Homes for Heroes teamed up with PEER Sonoma to assist in a school supply give away. Educators, teachers, staff, and students affected by the October fires were able to come and stock up on all they needed for the remainder of the school year. It was a great day of talking to our Heroes, listening to each unique story, and sharing our Homes for Heroes information with all.
