John Gonsalves
President and Founder, Homes For Our Troops

Before founding Homes for Our Troops, Mr. Gonsalves had 20 years of experience in the construction field. He was a licensed construction supervisor and also a registered home improvement contractor.

As it did for many people, Sept. 11, 2001 changed Mr. Gonsalves' life.

He wanted to use his construction experience to help in some way. After the war began, he was watching the news when he witnessed a wounded soldier and thought, "What now? What will happen to this soldier?" He began searching for an organization in his field of construction and home building where he could volunteer his services. When his search came up empty he decided to create his own organization, and within months he founded Homes For Our Troops.
