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.

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.
