Former Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kurt Warner and his wife, Brenda, are on their way to creating a legacy that’s bigger than winning the Super Bowl. The two decided to build a house in Arizona that will help people dealing with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
The house, which the Warners have called Treasure House, was built after they discovered their adult son Zack, who is developmentally disabled, had no place to live on his own in Arizona. They decided to build Treasure House to not only help Zack, but to assist others as well.
When Hall of Fame QB Kurt Warner & Brenda Warner discovered there wasn't a place for their developmentally disabled son to live independently, they took matters into their own hands, building the "Treasure House."

Treasure House is “dedicated to creating a family, a team of support, for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD),” according to its website. Zack and five other residents currently live there, but there are plans to take in about 20 more individuals.
The Warners don’t plan to stop there. Kurt and Brenda believe they can open more houses and impact thousands of lives, according to CBS News.
“Here’s a place where they can grow and they can thrive and they can chase after their dreams,” said Kurt. “We believe it can be life changing for thousands and thousands of families.”
The Warners said they believe they can duplicate this dream across the country.
“People are going to forget that I won a Super Bowl, but they’re never going to forget the kind of impact you had on them personally,” Kurt said.
The 47-year-old Warner spent 12 seasons in the NFL. He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2017.
