It’s teacher appreciation week and at Home for Heroes, we believe that the best way to show teachers our appreciation for the service they give is by helping them accomplish the goal of homeownership! Teachers seeking help buying a home can find some helpful programs here to assist with home purchase costs.
Showing teacher appreciation has always been a good idea. But in the wake of the pandemic and all the new requirements that teachers have had to live with, showing appreciation for our educators is no longer simply a good idea–it is vital to supporting a profession that sustains our communities. In the wake of all of these new pressures, and the loss of so many teachers who could not do it anymore, our nation is humbled in the light of their sacrifices.
As part of their Circle of Giving, the Homes for Heroes Foundation has awarded a $10,000 grant to the Million Dollar Teacher Project operating in Arizona.
The Million Dollar Teacher Project was founded five years ago by Executive Director Lloyd Hopkins. Hopkins has spent 18 years in education, from working with youth offenders, after school recreation programs, and drop out prevention.

Buying a home for the first time is exciting, but also expensive. While historically people saved 20% for their down payment, you can still get a great home and good mortgage with less, thanks to first time home buyer programs for teachers. Between grants, national funding, and different types of loans, there are home buying programs specifically for teachers to help with down payment costs.
This year has been hard on everyone. But when things get tough, the bravery and indomitable spirit of our heroes shine through even brighter. As we end the year, we look back at the accomplishments of our heroes in 2020.
