Hero Center, Inc. Veteran Housing Opportunities

Hero Center is honored to be a resource to Veteran families in Stoughton, WI and the surrounding areas. Our desire is to offer support, a comfortable, safe and secure home that specializes in individualized personal care where our Heroes can continue their own personal story.

Hero Center is a small Veteran community based residential facility (CBRF) dedicated to promoting individual independence while providing quality caring assistance for Heroes. Our Heroes will enjoy a home-like community setting and a living environment that is the least restrictive of each Hero’s freedom; and that care and services a Hero needs are provided in a manner that protects the rights and dignity of the Hero. Where each Hero moves toward functional independence in daily living or to maintain independent functioning to the highest possible extent.

This fundraiser is to help cover the costs of remodeling, provide continuous financial support and provide some special touches of home for our Heroes.

Hero Center programs and services are tailored to the unique needs of each of our Heroes. Hero Center's entire team will provide loving and dependable care in a home like, warm and comfortable setting. We’re dedicated to providing compassionate and personalized attention to our Heroes and their families.
