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!

My dad was a career veteran with the US Air Force, so I was raised a Military Brat & understand the commitment of our military personnel & their families. Sadly, many of today's combat veterans do not cope well with injuries and for various reasons fall through the cracks when it comes to medical assistance after they have departed the service. Wounded Warrior Homes has stepped up to provide local homeless veterans afflicted with PTS & TBI with a roof over their heads and a personalized plan for healthcare, education and civilian career guidance for each resident. I am grateful to WWH's for providing me with an opportunity to help veterans in need, and honored to work with their dedicated volunteers and hard working staff members.

Wounded Warrior Homes is an amazing organization who is very genuine in their services. The organizational staff and volunteer base they attract is top notch and aims to provide resources to many deserving veterans. Often times the personal connection gets lost in translation when an organization continues to grow, however this is not the case with WWH. Every person I have met in the organization and from the volunteer staff all maintain and invest themselves into their passion for helping veterans. I love to volunteer with WWH and will continue to do so.

Mia Roseberry and the staff at Wounded Warrior Homes are some of the most helpful and kindhearted people I've met who have the desire to help underserved veterans. Mia and her husband Steve actually started Wounded Warrior Homes when they first allowed homeless veterans to sleep in their own house! If you actually want to help a veteran, I'd consider giving to this organization. They do all they can to help, they're near the phone almost 24/7 and they point veterans in the right direction to get the resources they need on top of actually building homes for them. These are kindhearted people who have even helped me personally. I can't say thank you enough.

As a Visiting Nurse, I regularly place my Vets in the Wounded Warrior Homes. The program assists them on getting back on their feet...financially, socially & emotionally and continues to assist them even when they are out on their own. The staff are dedicated to ensure each Veteran receives the best care they can deliver.

This organization offers a phenomenal opportunity for Veterans who are in transition. Often these Veterans are homeless, and without direction. Offering them sanctuary is often the step needed to start moving forward.

In 2009, I heard Mia Roseberry give a talk about a non-profit she and her husband were starting to help post 9/11 veterans with traumatic brain injury and/or PTSD. She and the cause immediately spoke to my heart--my husband was a Vietnam Veteran living every day with the trauma of war. Since then, through hard work, persistence and tremendous support from a wide variety of people and organizations, Wounded Warrior Homes has grown from an idea to a strong organization serving veterans not only in the San Diego area but across the country. I am proud of the work they do, and grateful to be a part of.

Wounded Warrior Homes is a wonderful organization that serves the special needs of Military personnel that have suffered traumatic brain injuries. The founders of the organization have showed tireless dedication to taking care of anyone that comes to them for help. They offer support in so many ways, as well as hope and opportunities for those in need to get back on their own two feet. They treat each individual with care and respect. In the capacity as a volunteer as well as a sponsor they have been great to work with.

I've been working with WWH since their inception. Steve, Mia and the whole team have immense passion for helping transition veterans with brain trauma - they work their tail off day in day out to make sure every once of support and love they can squeeze out of their budget and their own souls go to those guys. I've seen firsthand the transformation they can bring about in a young man through their program - from scared to leave his bedroom to speaking in front of hundreds of people at a time - it's a true miracle what they do.

I have volunteered and interned for Wounded Warrior Homes for many years now! Those who run the program are indeed, the type of people you love having in your life. It is like a big family, everyone always involved with each other and helping in whatever way possible. The work they are doing within the veteran community is unlike any other to me, in that you can truly see the genuine care! It is a true blessing to be a part of this organization!

I was a Marine for 20 years, retired in 1996 but at that time did not have an opportunity to get involved in my community. I recently moved to Bonsall, CA. and called this my last move. That is when I started looking at "how I can give back to the community and my fellow veterans." I researched multiple nonprofits before I came across Wounded Warrior Homes (WWH) and then asked them "how can I help." The group of people at WWH is truly amazing and they provide a valuable service to our veterans. Their goal is to keep costs down which provides more money to our veterans that need somewhere to live while they transition out of the service. I believe in this organization so much that I also donate money, time and anything else that they need.
