MMIA is the upmost wonderful organization that help so many Veterans' and Veterans' families.

Almost 9 years ago this organization came to our house and built a ramp for my grandson whose father is an active duty Army soldier.

They have the biggest heart and take care of so many needs. There programs that collect items for soldier's overseas and homeless are phenomenal.

There mission statement is true each and ever word.

MMIA is hands down one of the few organizations that truly understand how to assist our veterans in need. Although there are many organizations that state a mission to support veterans “in any way”, often times they have lengthy requirements lists and processes that take up time. By definition, in a crisis situation, time is not something that you have. The team at MMIA kicks into action as soon as a veteran reaches out to them. They plan and execute care for veterans like a real military mission. This organization has been a pleasure to work with and have come through to assist veterans many times over, even when other organizations leave the veteran hanging. Another great part of MMIA is that their mission goes beyond just veterans; this organization steps in to support our communities during times of hardship and disasters. Now that is selfless service.

MMIA continues to help Veterans near and far. They send packages to those who are deployed to those that might need assistance by building decks, ramps, furnishing homes for Veterans in need or doing stand downs for the homeless Veterans.

Their dedication extends even beyond our veterans and military population for whom they provide volunteers to help with making homes handicap accessible, toiletries for the homeless, donations which include furniture, appliances, and so much more. Their true passion is to help! Whether in a flood ravaged area, in need of furniture, food, clothing, whatever MMIA has that can help restore some basics to struggling families, they are there to provide whatever assistance they can. I have worked with Mike Dorman on the Night to Shine prom which allows special needs children to enjoy their very own prom and MMIA was instrumental in donating a variety of items to make this night even more special and Mike and his volunteers make a point of being there to assist on this incredible night The number and magnitude of projects they undertake involves 10 hr work days even at times including Saturday and Sunday in their effort to ensure that struggling families have their needs met as soon as possible. Their sacrifice and devotion extends far beyond our community This organization is comprised of of selfless and loyal volunteers Their tireless efforts on behalf of those in need and their continued search for opportunities to serve is something we should all try to emulate.

I first heard of MMIA when they were collecting golf clubs for wounded soldiers. My family had a wonderful experience working with Dan Marusa. Later as Commander of my American Legion Post I asked Dan to speak on the additional services MMIA offered. Most recently MMIA has been to the house THREE times (with a fourth pickup pending) as we are significantly downsizing. I know Zak, Michael, and Jillian all got workouts loading the trucks with furniture, decor, and cookware each visit! We are grateful for MMIA to be able to help offset the needs of our fellow wingmen with the household items we can pay forward. We look forward to a long relationship with MMIA. We deeply support their mission. M & S

Mike and his team work tirelessly to serve their mission of supporting veterans, active military soldiers and their families. There is no need too small and no request too big. I have had the honor of volunteering with MMIA and will continue to do so in the future. A truly world class organization working selflessly to help others.

WOW! What an incredible mission! I have had such a great time volunteering with MMIA. I went and delivered furniture to a previously homeless veteran who literally had nothing in her apartment other than an air mattress. She cried and we all cried. She prayed for us and we prayed for her. It was truly an amazing experience. I've been down with them to the homeless veteran stand downs where they hand out shoes, clothes, food and hygiene items to homeless people. MMIA is truly on the ground running in NC and they are meeting people right where they are. They are making a difference!

MMIA continues to send care packages to our troops, thanks to the many volunteers, remodel homes so our veterans can continue to live at home, and have many fund raisers to buy all the supplies needed. I recently sent Jessica a list of all the current projects that are needed. Our money is well spent. Our President recently honored Mike Dorman with Citizen of the Year. He gives his all to this mission and is to be commended for all the hours he puts in.

Military Missions In Action has such dedicated & honest leadership and volunteers. Wish I lived closer so I could volunteer more often other than just helping spred the word whenever possible. They repair or modify homes for our wounded or sick veterans so they can live at home with their families. What a wonderful way to serve them as they & their families have given so very much for us. MMIA holds many events to raise money for their cause. Fix many boxes for our military serving abroad.

Military Missions In Action does it right. 98% of donations are used for projects supporting disabled veterans and our troops in harms way. The energy and enthusiasm of our volunteers and staff is the best. Supporting our wounded veterans has a pronounced and profound uplifting effect on their lives and families lives. As a retired military vet I have found no better way to give back to fellow veterans and active duty troops.

My Woman's Club of Clayton became aware of the great work MMIA does to help wounded veterans from our area, and we wanted to help. One of the first projects we got involved with made us realize just what a great group it is. Many of us volunteered to help with the renovation of a home, making it accessible to a returning Iraq War veteran who could not get up the stairs in his home any more. It was such a worthwhile project to work on, and it is only one of the many MMIA has undertaken. We are committed to continuing our financial support and helping in any way we can.

I volunteer with several differnent organizations and I have to say the passion, drive, and dedication that the Military Missions in Action volunteers have is extraordinary.

I am a disabled veteran who was in desperate need of help with my single wide trailer. I was waiting for my disability claim to be processed and did not have the income to support myself let alone do the needed repairs to my home. Military Missions in Action came in and took care of everything. They were kind, caring, and made me feel like I had a family in them. I was treated with respect, included in the decisions, and received more help than I would have thought possible. They even remembered me at Christmas time! They have come back a couple of times when I developed some unforeseen problems and took care of them as well. I have also seen the impact they have had on some other veterans in need in my area. I can't even begin to describe how they changed my life and allowed me to hope again. Thank you MMIA for all you do!

Throughout my association with MMIA, I have witnessed firsthand the impact that MMIA has on the lives of our military veterans and their families. By assisting our disabled military veterans with home repairs, MMIA has helped to heal families and bring them closer together while allowing more independence for our disabled military veterans. This is a charity where all of the money that is donated to it goes directly back to the mission. This is definitely a charity that someone can get behind and feel passionate about.

I think this organization is a wonderful organization serving the injured men and women who have served our country. Mr. Dorman, the founder of MMIA is himself a retired Coast Guard. He is very actively involved in helping those who have been injured or disabled through home modification, building wheelchair ramps, handicap accessible showers, widening doorway,and so much more. Mr. Dorman truly has a heart and passion for serving these men and women who have been injured serving our country. Additionally, Mr. Dorman makes all those who volunteer with theorganization feel as if they are a part of the family and he values their input.
