VALIANT HOUSE projects are community-based locations, with a dual purpose: to provide safety and security for both victims of child abuse and domestic violence. For the children, the houses are a shade of green and generally just like a foster home, but earmarked to help with medical and psychological support.
For the adults the houses are a shade of blue in neighborly settings, with emphasis on teaching the warning signs of domestic violence and ways to reach out for help, before becoming victims.
VALIANT HOUSE properties are made possible through the Radiant Hearts and hard work of volunteers, corporations and hometown business owners. They not only renovate houses, but also keep them in good condition for years with lawn care, security, phones, furniture, computers, plumbing and electrical, and all maintenance.
VALIANT HOUSE projects are honored to have the dedicated support of companies that are normally competitors that provide a range of help, from building materials and paint, to telephone and Internet services, rental cars, airlines and hotel rooms. They all give together from Florida to California and Tennessee to Illinois, creating safe and loving environments.
