I'm just blown out of my mind and it feels all surreal. This organization is a work of angels. My family was rewarded a 4 bedroom house in Helendale, CA and looking forward to seeing it soon. This organization has not just helped my family with a house, but also helping getting back on our feet with the financial program they have to offer. 3 year program it will make us solid with our finance and excellent home owners. They not just helped my family, they are helping many generations to come. Thank you so much words can not express for what you have done.

Without Military Wartiors Support Foundation my family and I would be homeless. Words cannot express how grateful we are. Thank you, MWSF, for all you do for injured and wounded servicemembers!

Thanks to MWSF I have a beautiful home. I was in a really bad place, mentally after deployment and separating from... everything. 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.

This opportunity is unparalleled in my 38 year, life experiences. The family and financial mentorship program with mortgage-free, home ownership integration is a steady, inspirational, and encouraging process. The support staff is friendly, helpful, goodwilled and intentioned. Thank you MWSF!!!

On May 23, 2014, our family was given an amazingly beautiful mortgage-free home. We are forever grateful. Without their help, I'm not sure when we would have ever been able to be first time home owners. Now our children have a steady home, and we don't ever have to move again. We LOVE our beautiful home, and we thank you so very much for your graciousness!

We would most likely be homeless without Military Warriors Support Foundation. Not only did they give us a mortgage free home, but they taught us how to repair and rebuild our credit and keep it up. They taught us how to budget our finances and spend wisely! Military Warriors Support Foundation is a true Godsend!

MWSF literally changed our lives. We were struggling trying to make ends meet waiting on my husbands benefits. We applied on a whim thinking we would never get picked. To our surprise we were awarded a home, given the tools and lessons to learn our budgeting. While in the program we paid off $30,000 in debt, was able to put money in a savings account Nowmwe have financial security live in a wonderful home that our children never have to worry about leaving and we are now apart of a great community. Words can never express the gratitude that we feel. The Stewart Family Waxhaw NC.

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.

The Military Warriors Support Foundation profoundly changed my life. Not only was I given a mortgage free home, but more importantly, I learned about finances, credit and budgeting. The education afforded me through this organization set me on the right track to be financially free now and in the years to come.
Thank you so much!

I was wounded in 2006. My family was blessed with a home in Cedar City, UT in 2012.
MWSF opened their arms to my family... a mortgage free home! My wife and I took the 3 year process seriously and met amazing people along the way.
Military Warriors Support Foundation has put my family on a financial track that allows me to support the 4 of us. For all those MWSF patriots who took my family under their wing we want you to know we are still on track and eternally grateful.

MWSF has changed my life for the better. I was living in Los Angeles, well trying to at least. After graduating from college I couldn't find a job and wasn't able to pay much of any Bill's so they just kept going up and more debt piled up. After being helped out by MWSF I paid off a very large amount of debt, am now a home owner( which I never thought I would say), I am working in my profession, my credit score is a lot better, I was able to buy a new truck, and have even thought about buying a 2nd home. I Owe so much to them and I couldn't be more greatful.

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.

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!

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!
