With out MWSF we would still be in debit, struggling to make it to the next month. We have been in the program for over two and a half years. We have paid off all of our credit cards and half of our car payment and we have been able to save money. Our mentor has helped in so many ways from simple problems to helping us understand and live with in our monthly budget. If it wasn't for MWSF we would still be struggling and never have the ability to be home owners.when I first heard about MWSF I thought that it was a scam some type of catch to it , boy I was wrong MWSF works hard to help Veterans and their families.

My Family and I left the military in a quick way. All of my injuries left me in a state that are dreams and plans changed forever. Sleeping on the couch of a family member trying to deal with pain and mental issues. Things were getting rough for my family as our 5 children had nowhere to call their own. My wife tried to assist me as I had the feeling of a failure not being able to provide for my family. I found Military Warrior Support Foundation and these Angels sent from Heaven changed our lives forever. MWSF and Chase bank teamed up along with a donor and awarded us a 5 bedroom house in Fort Worth, Texas. They helped me in providing a home mortgage free for my family and I. This has taken the largest financial burden off of us for me to work on fixing me. I have made leaps and bounds to my recovery after multiple surgeries and lots of mental therapy. The organization has provide a financial mentor during the 3 year commitment that contacts us monthly. The support and education of the mentor has helped us re-establish our credit rating and a more financial secure future. I'm grateful to MWSF and Chase bank for what they did for our family and I hope people can understand the great things this organization does daily for so many. They have invited me to play golf through their skills for life program and I wanted to take a moment to tell all of the donors and staff of MWSF thank you for saving my life because without you I know I wouldn't have made it through my injuries and mental problems....

I am beyond grateful for MWSF and what they have done for my family. Because of them I can have peace of mind, knowing my family has stability. We can focus on health & recovery and be hopeful for our future. I medically retired from the army 8 months ago, after 14 years of service. The transition has been rough to say the least; we quickly found ourselves falling behind, suffering from stress, and other disability related symptoms. MWSF is the best thing that has ever happened to my family. They saved us and I am forever thankful.

We just found out that our family will be receiving a home. I consider myself lucky to have encountered such a great organization such as MWSF. We are so grateful to have been chosen for such a life changing opportunity. I cant wait to move into the home to have stability for my family. Thank MWSF for making a dream come true for yet another veteran.

they either give to people that work for them and made friends with the higher ups like General Leroy Sisco, or if they feel they can profit off your photo. I was lied to by them for over a year saying they were willing to help me as Im a purple heart recipient deployed twice as infantry and have been fighting terminal brain cancer since June 2009. I was led on until after over a year I finally hear the truth that I was never being considered but know of several with minor injuries to receive homes. To be fair they never declare what process they use to determine who gets help with one of their homes but also feel that hearing about several people who were friends with them were promised a house before they even applied for one. But I guess thats life no one said it was fair, just don't like how they are not really held to much of a standard.

I was wounded in Iraq 11 years ago, I barley found had the strength a few years ago, to admit that I needed help. To admit to myself I was hurt. To accept it, I've seen my scars, yes I have seen the x-rays, I have read my diagnosis, but accepting it was the true struggle, learning that beating my disabilities was the wrong approach, rather accepting, embracing, living with them. Learning my disabilities are now a part of me, that they make me who I am now, that they make me unique, make me a part of a special brother and sister hood of warriors. I started attending events, seeking help, talking about my feelings, fears, going to the doctors, and at a WWP event, my AW2 advocate, told me about an organization, homes4woundedheros, and they have just been an amazing life saving organization. The attention, the kindness, the service provided by this amazing org, specifically Mrs. Kelly, was above and beyond. Never being a home owner, and being retired going to school and totally lost in my future, unsure of a career path. Homes4woundedheros has lightened my worry load and has blessed us with a home. A place to start fresh, and move foward. Time to finish school and look for a future for myself. I could go on all day about homes4woundedheros, and words will never express the gratitude I have for them, Mrs. Kelly's call brought me to tears, I damn near fell on the floor when she gave me the news. My heart skipped a beat my knees buckled, and I pinched the heck out of my self to make sure I was awake. From my little family to the great family of homes4woundedheros, we appreciate and love you all. You have provided us with a tremendous unbelievable, opportunity, gift, blessing, a home. A home to watch our kiddos grow, a wall to mark the progress of they're growth. A backyard for birthday parties year after year. A kitchen to teach my kids to cook and have holiday dinners in. A room for my kids to come home to during college breaks in 15 years, the same room they grew up in. Thank you H4WH, you are my families, angels in disguise.

After my husband was injured in Afghanistan in 2010, our world changed. 5 years later, foreclosure (due to his injury/ being so far away from help) we were blessed to stumble upon military warrior support foundation, we found a home where we are from and our family is close by. We applied for it, just hoping/praying. Well today, we got that amazing call that we were awarded this beautiful home. My two kids will grow up in a beautiful home near family and friends and we wont have the stress of not being able to have a home due to foreclosure. We are so excited to be part of this family and so blessed. Thank you again MWSF for all that you do, not just for my family but for all the others you have helped, You are an amazing organization and the staff is so friendly!! Thank you Again!
