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!

We lost our home in 2015 due to mold and mildew. We found out last week that we were being awarded a mortgage-free home in NC! We are in complete shock. We have been through a very rough patch in our lives. MWSF has been amazing! We can not wait to move into our beautiful home:) Thank you MWSF so much for this home!

- 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

Where would you be without Military Warriors Support Foundation?
I will be probably be living in the same undesirable area and same apartment I was living before be giving this amazing opportunity of owning a house.
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.

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.

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.

I couldn't be happier and grateful MWSF is real. When I heard about it I didn't believe it. Two of my fellow Marines received homes and I still thought it was a scam. It's not. I just finished the program and am now a home owner. My life has be turned around and I am on my way of being successful. I can not thank MWSF enough.
