Clayton has grown to become a large homebuilder in the U.S manufactured housing industry, providing families with affordable, quality homes since Jim Clayton sold his first home in 1956. Over the last 60 years, the company has remained true to its core values, including "taking care of the communities we live in."

Clayton is aiding Hope for the Warriors®, a nonprofit organization that provides services for wounded war veterans and their families. For every Patriot home sold, the company is donating $100 to Hope For The Warriors®. Through this donation program, the company has given tens of thousands of dollars to Hope for the Warriors®, and that number continues to grow.


"We really respect the sacrifice the members of our military make in order to serve and protect our country," said Clayton CEO Kevin Clayton. "Unfortunately, a lot of them return home and have to fight new battles. We are proud to contribute to Hope for the Warriors® so that our veterans in need get the help they deserve."

  • Clayton built more than 34,000 homes
