Absolutely Life Changing! I am able to return to school and gain the education to begin a 2nd career. I would not have been able to return to college with MWSF! The peace of mind that come with home ownership is beyond my vocabulary to adequately express! My credit score is so much better than it was. I am in such a better place than I was before this all happened! I am able to focus on the important things, spending time with friends and family, getting my degree, adding a fur baby to my family.

I cannot thank MWSF enough for this amazing gift for my family and I. We are truly grateful to you, your donors and those who sponsor these programs. Transportation 4 Heroes and MWSF is the real deal.

Hi my name is Nate Terzano. I can't believe answering a phone call has changed my family's life for the best. Today we received a call that we were awarded a mortgage-free home. We want to thank our vetting coordinator Lisa and the entire team at military warrior support foundation for all their help. You guys truly are a blessing and we are looking forward to being apart of your team. This home really means a lot to our family. Again we truly thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the chance to grow with our kids.

Military Warrior Support Foundation has changed my life so much. By being awarded a home through there homes 4 hero's it has made mine and my families lives so much better. The financial mentoring that we received we fixed our credit to where now we are sitting closer to the 800 mark and that is Excellent credit rating and without that help and teaching we would not be home owners who also own our cars we have. I would recommend to anyone in or out of the military to contact them for help they have many program's that can help

Military Warriors Support Foundation has changed my life and my Wife's lives by giving us the tools to not only know how to watch our finances and also to be able to look at our credit report's and contact those that we owed money too. We have used the 3 year's to our advantage and clear everything from our credit report's. After completing these 3 year's we have raised our credit score and are enjoying our new used home and are happy that we are now financially safe ( secure ). We GIve a BIG THANKS to Military Warriors Support Foundation and the Donor's that are giving those of us who were or are in the Military to know that we are not forgotten.

On behalf of all the wounded veterans, I can't imagine a better way to start a prosperous new life than a new home and being debt free. The Military Warrior Support Foundation gives our veterans a transition to financial security all while taking care families. I thought it was too good to be true, and I was pleasantly surprised when all the miracles happened. My mentor was such a blessing, she guided me for three years to a debt free existence.
I am extremely grateful!

Hello to all the fine folks out there. My name is Mark Duran and I have recently received the greatest gift imaginable; a new mortgage free home. I was lucky to survive a VBIED Suicide Bomber attack in Afghanistan that resulted in years of recovery (spine, TBI, and PTSD) and a medical retirement from the Army.

Now I feel even more fortunate for the care and generosity of the Military Warriors Support Foundation. My life changed in an instant after receiving the good news of my new home. I have literally been adrift settling into the Midwest after my discharge in 2007, I was afraid to go back to my home out west in the Afghan like deserts of New Mexico and Mountains of Utah. The lakes of Wisconsin is the perfect place for recouperation and healing, the new home is EXACTLY Where I Want To be!

I did go back, and I've spent the last six months facing my fears in the high desert near Taos New Mexico... The flashbacks, nightmares, and intrusive memories are more controlled. Mission accomplished! Now I am so excited to reinvent myself once again in Wisconsin, living in a safe environment while reducing my debt. It's time to set new goals.

I even reconnected with Melissa, a former MP whom I was stationed with in Germany. I look forward to a bright future with Melissa by my side in a home made possible by the wonderful folks at Military Warriors Support Foundation!!! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!!!!

We were fortunate to be accepted into MWSF's housing program, and have been working with Karyn Phillips for the last year. This has been an exceptional experience, and Karyn has been more than attentive to our needs. We have learned so much over the last year about finances, budgeting, future investing, home management, and even about ourselves and our attitudes towards money. This program, and Karyn's tutelage have brought us closer together as a family, and strengthened our resolve moving forward towards a better financial future. We can't fully express in writing how valuable this experience has been.

What an amazing organization! We were swimming in debt and paying over 1400 dollars a month for rent in NY when MWSF moved us into a new home.

The first thing I would like to do is give a huge shout out to our financial advisor, Karyn. It has been a superb experience working with her. We really appreciate her efforts and will make sure we keep in touch with her in the future. Our goals while in the program were to raise our raise our credit scores, learn how to be more financially disciplined, and share these lessons and experiences with our children. I am happy to report that we achieved all of those goals and more! This has been a stress free process and we would recommend this program to anyone that is interested. We have achieved financial security and would not change this experience for anything in the world! We moved to Pace, Florida, site unseen, and we are so happy we did!! We love it here!! Thank you, Military Warriors Foundation and thank you Karyn!!

Homes 4 Wounded Heroes is an absolute blessing for our family. We were hesitant to apply because we always felt that someone else needed a home more than we did. My background is a combat injured veteran with 5 tours to Iraq. I have had two IED accidents and one mortar at camp next to my tent. I suffer from TBI, seizures, PTSD, and a slue of other injuries.

My wife has looked at this organization for years and we both felt to humble to apply. Finally, just out of the blue, my wife decided to apply. The urge to finish all the required documentation was strong and she didn’t want to miss anything. Once we talked with Mario (intake coordinator) he was a breath of fresh air. He was kind, knowledgeable, and nonjudgemental. The process was not overwhelming and they walked us through the paperwork. I would highly recommend Homes 4 Wounded Heroes without any hesitation. They were swift in communication from the initial application to present. After we decided to apply for a certain home, the board was able to make a prompt decision and we were notified immediately. Homes 4 Wounded Heroes is a blessing and they are giving me my life back by helping me with the most difficult times of my life! Thank you so much to all that have helped not only to us, but all the rest of my brothers and sisters in arms.

MWSF completely transformed my life!! First, I would like to start off by saying how humbling it is to have this wonderful group of people who transform veteran’s lives. I was in tears when I initially heard of the organization and could not believe their mission. After being selected to receive a mortgage-free home, I was completely speechless. The opportunity gave me financial freedom, ability to micro manage my personal finances through their mentorship program, and a new home. My family and I were very grateful that we could take part in this exciting opportunity that many never see or receive consideration. The home has enabled our family to save, organize, prioritize, and optimize our resources. The blessing has been so heartfelt and our family wishes nothing but the world to MWSF who truly is an apex of non-profits.

It was truly an answer to prayers and such a huge blessing for our family. Throughout the program, we were able to communicate monthly with a financial mentor, and really take control of our finances. We were able to pay off all of our debt and welcomed our first child into our new home.

I'd likely have committed suicide without the leg up that MWSF and its donors have given me. Thank you. I was given the opportunity to escape bad influences and a job that sucked the life out of me. MWSF also had a financial advisor that helped me learn to manage my money and pay down debt. I have learned to manage my financials for more freedom and have started my own business as a result. I feel truly blessed for the opportunity given to me by all of you. Thanks a million.

I am a Marine Corps combat veteran that was injured in Afghanistan in early 2011. I suffered a gunshot wound to my hips that resulted in physical mobility issues and a traumatic brain injury.

Military Warriors Support Foundation and Pulte: Built To Honor awarded me a mortgage-free home in late 2017. In addition to the fact that I now have a brand-new, beautiful home to share with my partner, I have a home office that I use to run my business which is now doing very well. I have turned a portion of my garage into a gym where I continue my physical rehabilitation to this day.

To say that Military Warrior Support Foundation changed my life would be quite the understatement; they have given me a new life and set me up for success by providing me with financial counseling for the next several years.

I am so grateful every day to have been given this opportunity and to see their amazing support for veterans.

Thank you, Military Warriors.

A week after we got Bin Laden they got my husband. He took a 500lb IED blast to the undercarriage of their transport vehicle and it almost cost him his life, it did cost him his identity. He spent two years trying to recover his injuries enough to return to active duty. He was the 50 cal operator on convoy security in Afghanistan and his job was his life. He was a strong fast brace strong leader and in one fowl swoop he lost everything but his family. He couldn’t work, I had to be home to take care of him and our two very young children.
MWSF saved our family. We found stability and he began to recover. So many things in our life changed entirely because of them.
If it weren’t for MWSF (and I have to thank Chase Bank for gifting us our home) my assumption is we would still be renting, struggling, penny to penny and honestly I have no clue how we could have gotten by. We were sinking and they saved us and they honored my husbands service in a way that we could have never even imagined.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you.

When I found MWSF, I was living in an apartment complex that didn’t care that the air conditioning system was leaking and caused a section of the downstairs roof to cave in with my daughter and my then-boyfriend (now husband). My AW2 advocate sent me a link and encouraged me to apply, and we were awarded a mortgage-free home in a town about 20 minutes away from where we were living at the time. That house was a blessing beyond measure. We were able to pay off debt and improve our credit scores through the 3 year program, and we were able to make a wonderful home for our family. I don’t know where we would be now, if it weren’t for this program. They truly bless disabled veterans with a home of their own.

MWSF literally changed our lives for the better. We were given a home near some of my family that I haven't seen since I was a kid. I was able to meet my oldest half-brother for the first time and was able to introduce him to two half-sisters he knew nothing about. We all got together once a month and had a Watkins Get Together and the memories made were beyond measure.
MWSF also gave us the financial freedom from a mortgage and financial counseling which ended up helping us to become debt free. We would not be where we are today with the help from MWSF. I love the fact that they just don't give you a house but help you to figure out how to live debt free.
So, thank you to MWSF and anyone that supports this amazing organization!

Not only am I $78,000 out of debt with the aid of monthly financial counseling... MWSF gave me and my family a place to call our home. Without MWSF, I whole heartily believe that me and my Wife would be homeless or stuggling in a 400 sq ft apartment... and without this house they gave me for free (with 3 yr commitment), I don't think me and my Wife would have been blessed with our two newest babies in our family. MWSF literally saved my life and massively improved my family's quality of life. I CANNOT express how grateful and respectful I am of this Organization! May God Bless this non-profit even more so they truely can make the ultimate impact NO OTHER (in my opinion, Coalition to Salute America's Heroes is runner up for sure!) organization can! I still live in my house almost a year now after my Deed transfer. Next spring I am selling this wonderful house of which I invested $20,000 of remodeling and new Air Conditioner Unit with some help of other nonprofits (dog kinked the compressor line, no bieno!). I have purchased land in my home State and plan on starting construction soon.... the sale of this house is paying for everything being built. So in essence, MWSF gave me the opportunity to live my dream as a Homesteader and live it where I want too. The donated house was never entended to be a platform to reach my dreams... my dreams of Homesteading recently developed over the last few years.

Thanks again MWSF, God Bless!

- update,
we are in the final process of transferring the deed of the house over to us, lots of good people behind the scene to make this process smooth and painless.
Like we have mentioned before, there is no words to describe how grateful we are, grateful to MWSF, donors and lots of other generous people that made this possible.
The feeling is like what we felt over in the begging of this journey, unreal, happiness, and tears.
We can't believe that this beautiful home is ours, a home that offer us a sacred space to retreat from our daily lives issues, a home that offer us a sense of safety, a home that is bringing lots of good memories past and future.
Over the three years we have experienced the joy of doing some beautification projects outside and inside. This experience has also brought me some sense of calm and relaxation and pride. It is kind of therapeutic for me to work around the house, because I knew that after three years, this beautiful home will be ours and the feeling of a pride homeowner.
MWSF not only donated this house to us, but they have also provided a safety blanket over the shoulders of myself and my family.
They also provided us with avery kind and helpful, financial mentor.
Deena Noonan, our financial advisor has educated me and my wife on how to better manage our finances, and about the many responsibilities of being a homeowner. With her help, we have finally paid off all of our debt, debt that couldn't probably never allow us to own a home.
With her help, we can gladly say that we are ready to tackle the many responsibilities that come with being a homeowner. And the responsibilities of of using money and credit in a responsible way.
I don't get tired of saying this but I truly believe that MWSF is the true definitions of what making a difference looks like, they building hopes, dreams, joy and happiness for our Wounded Warriors and their families, gold start families and many others.
My family and I will be forever grateful to you, Bank of America, the many other donors and countless people that made this amazing non-profit organization possible and our dream of owing a beautiful home.
From the bottom of my hart, thank you very much and God bless you all.

Sincerely,
The Oribio's family

MWSF has giving my family and I a decent neighborhood and house to call home. A house that my family and I are proud to come home, a house that is sacred for our family well being, and a house that give us the opportunity to get away from everything and just enjoyed us being a family.
Thank you to MWSF, donors and volunteers, God bless you all!

MWSF has given me a home where I can plant roots and start a family on a sound foundation. I no longer have to worry that my rent is going to continue to rise to the point of forcing me to move or worse. Without MWSF I wouldn't have a place to call my own, my home.

MWSF gave me and my family a mortgage free home in the state we wanted. The area the house was in could not have been better. MWSF truly set us up for success for the rest of our lives.

From a Retired Veteran SSG Brian Bentley. The Military Warrior Support Foundation has been a blessing to my life and my family. Having this incredible opportunity to live in a home that we can call our own and not worry about a mortgage has instrumentally given us a hope and a chance to live again. The mentorship program has revolutionized our lives by allowing us to pay off debt and learn how to manage our finances the right way. If not for the Military Warrior Support Foundation I would still be struggling just to make ends meet with debt and expenses. Having our first child in June would have been so stressful, this has truly given us a chance to raise a family and have a peace about our future. I can focus on being a Father and I can focus on integrating back into living instead of just surviving. Words can not express how grateful my family and I are for this wonderful Foundation. The Military Warrior Support Foundation has totally changed our lives forever. God Bless the Military Warrior Support Foundation and all the people that are in it. Thank You!

Mwsf has been a true blessing to me and my family we can not describe what it's been like . One is they got me to pay attention to what I was buying, and they really helped me get my old debt paid off which is huge.
I just hope other veterans gets a chance to do this program and get a leg up on life

MWSF is a amazing donor foundation that allowed me to become a home owner. Being a disabled Purple Heart Marine Veteran I am eternally grateful to everyone who worked together to donate a home to me. Semper Fi.

MWSF provided the stability and foundation for a new life after my husband was medically retired from the Army. I cannot express my deepest, most heartfelt gratitude for being there and providing us with a new approach to financial independence, renewed faith in humanity and family, all within a gorgeous new home to start our new life in. They truly saved multiple lives that day they awarded us a home; my husband, myself, and our three boys. We cannot thank you enough. God Bless.

I was wounded in combat during Operation Enduring Freedom in 2011. I suffered a gunshot wound to my right femoral artery and anoxic brain syndrome from the blood loss.

I applied for a home this year through Military Warriors Support Foundation and was awarded a brand new home through a partnership with Pulte's Built to Honor program.

The whole experience has been literally unbelievable. Military Warriors Support Foundation is giving me a brand new home that is coming fully furnished and are setting me up for success with a financial mentor who will work with me for years. I can't thank them enough for everything they're doing for me. I feel truly blessed for all the help they are giving me.

Leaving the military can be tough on some if not most; Military Warriors Support Foundation has help me transition and build a strong foundation.

This organization has helped me build a better future. I do not have to worry about trying to make rent at the end of every month while going to school full time. I will be graduating this December 2016 with a Bachelors in Science at the University of Houston. The organization sets up a call every month to talk about issues that you might have and will try their best to assist you anyway they can. I am very blessed for them to come into my life.

We received a house from the military warriors foundation we r so grateful we were able to adjust to our new life with him out of the army and pay off almost all of our debt. This house saved our family. We are so grateful.

We can't thank MWSF enough. Just a week ago we received a phone call from Savanah, awarding us with a mortgage free home! My husband, Ben served 10 years in the Air Force. Unfortunately Ben was injured while deployed to Iraq and was medically retired just last month. While we prepare for this major transition in our life's, Savanah couldn't have called at a better time. We can now breath knowing our family has a home to go to while we navigate our new "normal". This organization has been a blessing to my family and we can't wait to get settled into our new home so Ben can begin his road to recovery, stress free. Thank you MWSF!! We are forever grateful!

The wounded Warrior foundation here in San Antonio has been nothing short of a life saver for me. I retired in 2013 as Chief Warrant Officer 3 with a Masters degree and couldn't find a job. I reached out to the Wounded Warrior foundation and was assigned a job search assistant (Linda Cubera), and she was absolutely amazing. She gave me great tips on what jobs to pursue and how to tailor my resume. She also provided simulated mock interviews and was brutally honest. I truly needed that! She would also put me in contact with local businesses looking for people with my skill set, and she would periodically check up on me to see how I was doing in my job search, and after I started working she would still check up on me to see how things were going.

As a 22 year veteran I truly appreciate the effort of this organization that helped me get to where I am today. Linda Cubera is an asset to the Wounded Warrior Foundation.

My family and I thanks the Military Warriors Support Foundation for awarding us with something we have strived for a long time. Owning our own home means the world to us. We have been renting a home for the past few years that has a very bad termite problem and needed renovations. We dreamed of having a home were we could raise our children to be the best that they can be. We were astounded of how the process of applying was extremely easy and fast. We applied and turned in all of the documents we needed and in about two and a half weeks later we were told that we were awarded the house. Dealing with our case manager was a very pleasing experience. Ms. Savannah was extremely polite, helpful, and answered all questions we had. This organization is wonderful and I hope they continue to change lives for the better like they have done for us.

On March 1st 2017,after many prayers...the best news came from our case manager~the best out there Ms. Savannah❤. We were homeless,we were struggling and after 1 1/2 year from our application date MWSF came as a blessing upon blessings straight from God. Now we finally got to know that feeling that we imagined when we've seen someone wining the lottery on tv.It's like a dream and even if we are a month away from moving and making contact with our new home..it still hasn't sinked in.
The apartment we live in is our 5th address in last 6 years.Our two children are born in diferent states and every military personnel knows the feeling...But now we finally can think of a new beginning.With less struggle and more hope.My husband served America, fought for this flag and signed his life away for freedom.He was in the worst situation and the most attaked outpost COP Margah was his home for a year.I remember sending him packages with wipes (his shower at times), tabasco ( to make the MRE's taste better) and medication for his blistering feet and warm socks.. to go in missions where he lost brothers..allways will be remembered Manuel Vasquez and Danie Quintana( Se the clip of the attack actual footage from the explosion that was covered by BBC as well)...I know my husband heart and ours will allways bleed for these men that never returned to their loved ones. My husband witnessed their tears, their struggles and their hard work only to see them gone from this life and lost in eternity,just courageous men/women that sacrificed it all for this country. My husband served America and his ARCOM of Valor is pride to me..but to him it's just a piece of metal, a vivid memory of death.Death that he escaped..and hints of anger and sorrow for his brothers whom death trapped in its snare...What my husband has lost, can never be replaced.All the hours that were spent away from him, will never come back.But what HOPE is happening through MWFS and its sponsors,and its donors ! Hope that America hasn't forgotten her heroes and men and women of Valor. So Thank you everyone for a new beginning! Thank you from the deeps of our hearts! The Garcia Family.
