I came to Wounded Warrior Hones through the Board, and remained securing grant funding. As I met staff and volunteers, I realized each of us is there for a reason: to honor and support our nation's heroes. Being a small part of getting post 9-11 veterans on the path toward a successful civilian life with their invisible, and visible wounds of war managed is a gift.

I am the daughter of a retired naval officer, and he was so pleased to learn I am working with Wounded Warrior Homes.

My husband and I are on in our 70s and we feel at home at 9weekwarrior. Variety of opportunities and experts- Paolo, massage guy, is amazing-deep tissue and as a person one feels peace w/him. Yoga teacher, peppy and personal. Ben and Chondra and often their kids working out, happy, positive-you feel part of their spirit.

I love the work of this organization. They provide a safe environment for our wounded veterans needing some help to heal and live independently a chance to do so. The men have up to 24 months to execute on their personal plans for education, therapy, etc. as they move forward in life following injury while in service to our country. The leaders have personal experience with the military, many having served themselves, which makes the program more relevant and useful. They work hard and honorably, and receive no government funding for their efforts.

To serve your country, return to the United States and through unfortunate circumstances find yourself without a home to me is more than tragic. Wounded Warrior Homes is five-star, knocking it out of the park assisting veterans with housing needs. Being a Viet Nam Vet myself motivates me to help non-profits like Wounded Warrior Homes in San Marcos. For the past four years we have helped Wounded Warrior Homes keep down their administrative cost by donating a copier for their office use.

Wounded Warrior Homes continue to raise the bar as they expand their operations in North County San Diego. Every veteran I meet that has completed their program is ready to face the world on their own and take back their life. WWH helps our heroes and gives them a second chance!

I first met Mia Roseberry in 2010 when she was giving a speech about Wounded Warrior Homes and they were just starting out. Fast forward to 2018 and Wounded Warrior Homes is a thriving, growing organization providing a greatly needed service to our post-9/11 veterans with Traumatic Brain Injury and Post Traumatic Stress. Wounded Warrior Homes has a successful program of Transitional Housing and Reintegrative services that helps these veterans move from being a Warrior to Civilian.

Wounded Warrior Homes has helped me in ways I cannot put into words. I have struggled so much after coming back from Afghanistan and have been homeless for the majority of the time. Now I have a home and a great group of people who support me and pick me up and keep me going forward when things get tough. Thank you so much for all you do for us!

I had the opportunity to help at the WWH golf outing and am so impressed by how organized it was. The staff and Board of Directors were great and I had the honor to meet a few of the veterans in the program. I can't wait to help at other events in the coming year as well as the next golf outing!

After volunteering weekly for 11 months at Wounded Warrior Homes, I can confidently speak to the professionalism and dedication of the staff. They really care about their core mission of helping post 911 veterans who are suffering from traumatic brain injury and/or PTSD. One thing that has always amazed me about the organization is that when they have a volunteer ‘work day’ at one of the transitional houses for the vets, all the paid staff and most of the board members turn out as well! These folks just give and give.

I have spent the last 5 months volunteering at this organization. What struck me from the beginning is how the staff interacts with the veterans they help. When these guys come in the office, be it to pick up free food for themselves or their service dogs, check in with the staff squad leader about their progress or just to hang out, they are treated like the returning heroes they are - with respect and genuine welcome. I see smiles and hugs on both sides. It's like they're family. Beautiful to see.

My wife and I are strong supporters of the military and wanted to support a local cause in the San Diego area. Our good friend Bob Gough introduced us to Wounded Warriors Homes a few years ago. Bob is part of a passionate group of volunteers that work to provide our veterans with a temporary home and the help they need to transition from the battle field back to civilian life. This is a wonderful cause and I know first hand the work they do saves lives.

Wounded Warrior Homes has a passion for providing a stable, comfortable and modern living environment to assist the most vulnerable wounded warriors as they transition into the civilian world. I attended the ribbon-cutting celebration for their latest state-of-the-art property and had the opportunity to meet these brave men and see how they were positively affected by the generosity of this non-profit organization. They not only provide a home but they assist with connecting these warriors with support systems that enable them to become independent, productive and positive neighbors. There is so much more that needs to be done for these individuals and Wounded Warrior Homes is committed to continue their mission as I am committed to continue supporting them.

For several years, my husband and I have been supporters of and donors to Wounded Warrior Homes, a San Diego-based grassrooms and volunteer-based organization that serves our active-duty military personnel who suffer from PTSD and/or traumatic brain injuries. WWH provides long-term transitional housing for up to 2 years, along with support services, via transitional plans individualized for each injured veteran WWH serves. LIFE--Living Independently For Ever--is WWH's goal. Many of our injured active-duty members can't move home, either because their family is far away and/or because there aren't the necessary medical and care services available to them there. Too many of these injured service members would end up among the homeless, except for WWH. There are a number of "wounded warrior" programs out there. This one is in San Diego and is grassroots-based and all-volunteer. Please consider supporting this incredible program, where your funds definitely help those who have put their lives on the line for us.

My late husband died a Marine. He was a Sergeant in The USMC, he proudly served two tours in Vietnam, he would proudly serve again just to spare someone's father, brother, sister or mother the mental anguish and the cancers that continue to plague our soldiers. I heard of Wounded Warrior Homes and decided to reach out to them for I had lost my badly built wood and stucco wall due to the heavy rain and my insurance company denied my claim as it was deemed water damaged, with a limited income I felt hopeless and helpless.
Wounded Warrior Homes and my local Home Depot came to my rescue. The Team Depot volunteers built me a new stronger fence and restored my peace of mind and sense of security. I am eternally grateful that Wounded Warrior Homes came to my rescue.

I have been working with Wounded Warrior Homes for 2 years. I am the secretary of the board. The dedication of Mia,CEO and Steve, cofounder and board member and their staff are exemplary as is the that of the board members. Bob Gough, architect and board member, in particular spent hundreds and hundreds of hours working on the York house. Mia and Steve attend every function and Mia will spend hours working with any veteran who walks up to the Kiosk with a problem. The dedication of all these people is what inspires me to keep doing what I can to contribute. Lastly the experienced leadership of Jane Howell, the board president, has allowed us to move to a higher level of competence as a nonprofit for veterans.

Super fun group to work with! I had the opportunity to volunteer for one of the work days at the veterans house and the WWH staff was great and so stoked to have us all there to help! It was a cool way to spend a Saturday!
