Jared Allen’s Nonprofit Building Home for 1st Female Recipient


It’s been five years since Jared Allen retired from the football field, but he hasn’t lost a step in making the world a better place.

Since 2009, the former Vikings defensive end has been making a difference through Jared Allen’s Homes for Wounded Warriors. The nonprofit’s sole focus is raising money to build or modify homes for injured U.S. military veterans.

Most recently, JAH4WW announced plans to provide a brand-new home in Portland, Tennessee, for wounded U.S. Army veteran and Purple Heart recipient, retired Sgt. Stephanie Vazquez. The mortgage-free home for Vazquez will be 100-percent accessible and will be the first home built by JAH4WW in Tennessee.

Jared Allen’s Homes for Wounded Warriors is continuing its mission that began in 2009 and has launched a new logo. Order your fundraising T-shirt at homesforwoundedwarriors.com.
