As we move into the Fall of 2018, The Texas Sentinels Foundation has been blessed to be able to complete two custom homes for our TSF home recipients, one in Bastrop and one in Beaumont. The TSF home in Beaumont will mark the 23d home that has been awarded. The Texas Sentinels Foundation remains steadfast in its commitment to help build new lives for qualified and deserving combat wounded veterans. Since 2006, the Foundation has awarded more than 1,500 TSF Life Scholarships for long term/temporary housing, Action Track 4 wheel drive wheelchairs, service dogs, medically necessary surgeries, job training and placement, ADA vehicles and so much more.
Thank you to our many donors, sponsors, TSF Ambassadors and partners who generously support the Texas Sentinels Foundation. We couldn’t do it with you!

According to the TSF Home Team committee and Armour General Contractors, the home will be completed by Labor Day 2018. The home presentation date will be announced at a later date.
