About the Charity
Purple Heart Homes is a 501(c)3 public charity headquartered in Statesville, North Carolina. It was founded in 2008 by John Gallina and the late Dale Beatty, two combat wounded Veterans. After being injured in Iraq in 2004, they returned home to a warm welcome and grateful appreciation for their service. In addition, Dale, a double amputee, received assistance with a brand new completely accessible home. They set out on a mission to provide other Veterans, like them, the same levels of support and assistance from society.
Purple Heart Homes fills gaps in Veteran housing through the Veterans’ Aging In Place and Veterans Home Ownership Programs. From building a ramp for a Veteran of World War II, to providing home ownership opportunities to younger Veterans, our programs are designed out of necessity and fit the specific needs of the Veteran population.
