Hello and Thank You....Military Warriors Support Foundation has changed The Duety Family for life. Before we heard about MWSF we were living in one trashy neighborhood and house after another barely getting by with the bills and the rent. We were unable to correct our credit score to be able to even get a loan for a car much less our own home. Thanks to MWSF we have brought our credit score up, learned how to better our finances, and also learned how to budget our money a lot better. The Program is helpful and gives the Current Military as well as retired Military the ability to own there own home where most would be unable to. I hope that MWSF can continue to give peace and assurance to other Military Families for a long time to come. We have given advice to friends of ours that are both current and retired Military about this program in hopes that they to can succeed with there life long goals and dreams. I am so pleased with the experience that myself and Wife have received with MWSF and how much information that the Budget Counselor has given us and advice that she provides us. She truly wants us to succeed in life.

This foundation was brought to our attention back in August of 2016. We have applied for a home and are currently waiting to hear something. My husband suffers from multiple disabilities from his service to our country and I am a 2 year Breast Cancer Survivor still under treatment and now facing yet another scare with breast cancer... My husband is having another surgery this month.... We were given 6 weeks notice to move in August from our former residence due to it was going to be sold..... We were unaware of this program, but it is an awesome program that benefits so many. So happy to see programs like this out there that supports our Military~ When my husband was in Iraq and gone for 18 months there was something that I wrote on every single letter and package that I sent to him and other soldiers and it holds true today..... Friends, Family, Freedom........ Have you thanked a soldier lately...... Thank you for all that you do!

There are no words to describe what a blessing MWSF has been to our family...but I will try. After returning from a tour in Iraq (and 26 total years in the military), my husband suffered a TBI which triggered severe PTSD. My husband needed a fresh start, free from triggers and reminders of the past. Our mortgage-free home, that was provided by the Military Warrior Support Foundation, has allowed my husband (and our family) to experience LIFE again. Our home is in Florida> in a peaceful, and quiet neighborhood. This home is a BLESSING beyond BLESSINGS! My husband feels SAFE here and at peace. We also have the peace that comes from not having a mortgage hanging over our heads. Our prayer is that GOD will continue to bless MWSF and all of those involved. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

My husband was injured in Iraq. He suffers from a TBI, PTSD and tinnitus as a result from multiple blasts and IEDs. We were told about this program through the VA caregiver program and honestly, thought it was "too good to be true"...but NOT TRUE! The individuals that we spoke with were so professional and organized. It is very clear that they have a system that works and use it the exact same way for each applicant. Great people. Awesome LIFE CHANGING gift to give a soldier and his/her family!

Military Warriors Support Foundation is an amazing life-changing organization. MWSF called us yesterday to tell us that we are receiving a 100% mortgage free home. That is truly amazing and I am still in shock. Thank you so much for everything that you do. MWSF truly cares about veterans and their families. I cannot thank you enough....Thank you thank you thank you :) I cannot put into words how amazing this organization is. I would like to thank Kyle personally, he is truly amazing!!! I still can't believe that they have blessed us with a home! Thank you so much for giving my family a place to call home. We will forever be grateful for this blessing.

THIS ORGANIZATION IS A WASTE OF A DONATION. I EXPLAIN IN FULL: They have given homes to wounded warriors and thats great and all, but the method that they choose who is given a home is utter crap. I have had multiple friends who were injured in combat (no they didnt sprain their ankle playing golf, or hurt their wrist pushing papers). I was thankfully not injured when i served in iraq or afghanistan, but when i saw how 3 friends of mine have applied for homes and not been given the home because they didnt live close enough the the george strait concert where the home was awarded. apparently to be awarded a home you not only have to be combat wounded, but also within close proximity to one of their events, AND be willing to go on stage in front of a huge crowd of people. absolutely ludicrous. maybe THATS why they have so many houses available online.

If they are only focusing on the showboating of veterans, they cant focus on filling those 100+ homes with deserving combat wounded veterans who have severe PTSD and cant walk on a stage in front of thousands of people without breaking down.

THE FOCUS ON GIVING A HOME TO A WOUNDED VETERAN NEEDS TO BE ON THE VETERAN/FAMILY IN QUESTION - NOT THE EVENT THEY ARE BEING AWARDED AT.

I HAVE REQUESTED A RESPONSE ON THEIR SOCIAL MEDIA AND THROuGH THE CONTACT FORMS FOUND ON THEIR WEBSITE TO NO AVAIL. NO MEMBER OF THE ORGANIZATION IS WILLING TO SPEAK TO WHY THEY CHOOSE VETERANS IN THIS MANNER.

If you have had the same experience, please post on their facebook page, and contact forms and maybe they will understand that they need to change!

This organization really needs to have more robust checks into the former military members being awarded these homes. They recently awarded a home (November 2013) in Charlottesville, VA to a former service member who's actions while in uniform definitely didn't warrant him being awarded this home. This former solider committed adultery with another solider's wife while he was deployed overseas and his actions resulted in the wife becoming pregnant by him while he was still married to his previous wife.

In recent months the couple have been using the threat of litigation to force the husband who was deployed to finance their living expenses. I find it absolutely disgusting that an organization such as this couldn't be bothered to look deeper into this situation, especially when it was brought to their attention. Despite them claiming it was a civil matter, they are standing behind their claim that they couldn't find another more deserving solider and family.

The most telling part of this organization is that they have refused to post any news about the home being awarded to the service member after being confronted, and eveb strongly encouraged the husband who was cheated on to not take his story about this organization to the public. I strongly discourage participation and donations to this organization

My daughter and son in law received a home from Military Warriors Support Foundation about 1 1/2 years ago. At first we thought this was great for them, it was a nice house and was handicapped accessible. But please do NOT put these people who are financially strapped into a house where they have to pay HOA fee's and in a house where the taxes they have to pay per month is more than a mortgage would be. They have a financial adviser who doesn't even let them know when the taxes and payments are going up. Really $600 a month for property taxes and $100 a month for HOA fees. Plus all the extra utility bills for being in a much larger place. How does this foundation really expect them to pay for this? Someone needs to do something about this. Lets make sure these people can afford the monthly expenses. Sure it sounds great that they are getting mortgage free home, but now they are strapped more than before.

You bring up an interesting concern. After a certain point in the vetting process, each applicant and family applying for a specific property must submit financial documentation for MWSF to address this specific concern. Each family is also made aware of each of the expenses that they are responsible for prior to being awarded the property in question. The expenses that you have in question, therefore, should have been addressed prior, and during, the family's transition into the home. If the family is having concerns of their monthly expenses, that should be a conversation between themselves and their financial advisor as adjustments can, sometimes, be made if funds are "complicated." It is the goal of MWSF to ensure that each family is living comfortably afford the property and able to save/pay off debt while they are living in the home, and to not incur new forms of debt. If your daughter and son in law are having these issues, please have them connect with our office at (210) 615-8973 so that we can pin down what the issue may be and see if it is at all possible to have adjustments made. Thanks for your message!

I agree that this is a great program. My husband was deployed only twice but suffers sever ptsd among other problems including falling off of a shinook. We gave all proper documentation and were lead to believe that we could be chosen for a home. We did everything they asked us to do yet we were still turned down. Im very thankful for programs like this. We could really benefit from using a financial advisor to help us fix our credit and teach us budeting skills. Congratulations to all who was chosen.

We hope that in the future that we will be able to award your family a property, it is unfortunate that not everyone can be awarded each specific property, but we take in a great number of applications and vet through many highly qualified applicants to find the best fit. Hopefully, MWSF will be able to assist your specific family in the future, keep an eye out for the next property of interest and best of luck! Thanks for your comment!

I recently applied for the free mortgage homes for wounded vets and I have never seen such incompetence its a shame that would take someone who is already been through hard rough times to the extreme they will ask you to submit documents then say they never got them upon sending them numerously of times they will want you to produce forms you wouldn't have regular army soldiers need ngb forms but how when you not national guard and for OEF/OIF vets your dd214 needs to state where you were in Iraq specifically I have never seen a list of countries or cities on a dd214 and then they need a dd215 from someone who was discharged in 2006 go figure.

We apologize for any issues you may have faced in our vetting process. Our vetting process is quite thorough and we must be able to ensure that all applicants within our Homes4WoundedHeroes program were combat injured within Iraq or Afghanistan (During Operation Enduring Freedom/Operation Iraqi Freedom). Some veterans are unable to find their documentation that supports this, in this circumstance, we provide an additional avenue of retrieving documentation directly from , and is something we offer to all of our applicants. MWSF also pride's itself on the individuals who work within our Homes Coordination Team, as each of them have extensive knowledge of military forms and paperwork, and are also prior service. We welcome the opportunity to speak with you personally about this situation as it seems there may have been some type of a miscommunication. Please feel free to connect with our office at (210) 615-8973 Monday through Friday 7:30AM - 5:30PM CST! Thanks for your comment!

There are many Veteran Service organizations in our country today. There is also the GI Bill, VA benefits and other federal assistance too. Not one of those organizations or government programs in the USA can set a Combat Wounded Veteran on a near certain path to success and prosperity like the Military Warriors Support Foundation can. Homes 4 Wounded Heroes is a program that above any other VSO in this country cares more about the well being, financial future and family stability of a wounded warrior. No one can give any examples of charity greater than a wonderful home to live in, financial mentoring to get you back on your feet and family counseling to strengthen the family bond. The MWSF is the greatest Non-Profit Organization in the country, hands down.....
