The people and place are amazing. They are willing to listen to any concerns you might have and will help you in anyway they can. That's the kind of support our veteran community deserves. I can recall many times when I had nobody to help me out and felt hopeless so I stopped at Wounded Warrior Homes and realized how wonderful it is to know I can count on them. No judgments just simply willing to open their doors and share their knowledge and resources. I have been thinking of volunteering there since they also participate in serving veteran families especially during holidays. Life has many ups and downs but you should never lose hope that good things will come.

Our experience with Wounded Warrior Homes is as observers first, and then so impressed that we have become donors through the last 5-6 years. Wounded Warrior Homes is not to be confused with Wounded Warrior Project, and is not associated with it. This is a homegrown nonprofit, created to provide transitional housing and support services to post 9/11 veterans suffering from PTSD and brain injuries. It's financial support comes via individual donors, businesses and corporations and private grants. Since it's inception some 10 years ago, Wounded Warrior Homes has acquired and improved three homes—an incredible accomplishment in the high-priced San Diego housing market. Each home can serve four of these vets, many of whom went from family homes into the service and now must try to not only deal with their injuries acquired in service to our country, but must try to find their way as an adult in a world they often do not recognize, or at the least have no experience in. Wounded Warrior Homes not only provides transitional housing, but also operates a food pantry, not only for their resident veterans, but open to any local military family needing food in these pandemic times. WWHomes also provides support and resources for these vets, helping them to become productive members able to work and live on their own—and its success stories are many.

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.

WWH does an outstanding job of serving at risk veterans who have little to no hope elsewhere. It fills the void of transitioning by giving vets with ptsd or brain injuries a structured, safe and secure place to live while helping them address their health and mental issues.

The programs are taliored to each veterans needs. To me, our program is so much more than transtional housing, its about who each veteran is and can be. We help them see the positive impact they can make in our community as part of the next phase of thier lives. It is an honor to serve the veterans in our community.

The folks that work at Wounded Warrior Homes all have a big heart for veterans. Whether it's veterans in their core program, veterans who stop by once a month to pick up dog food for their service dog or to use the food pantry or veterans in the community who need help and are reaching out. Wounded Warrior Homes is always there to help. I have been associated with this organization as a volunteer and a staffer for 5 years. I have seen Wounded Warrior Homes staffers go above and beyond to help a veteran in trouble. It's a small organization with a mighty reach.

As someone who has served as both a volunteer and a staffer to Wounded Warrior Homes, I can say this is an organization that definitely cares. Cares about the veterans and their challenges, cares about doing the 'right thing', cares about going the extra mile for the veterans they serve. Recently, with the Covid pandemic, they have really ramped up their pantry activities, all on a shoe string budget. Hundreds of food insecure veterans have been served, giving them one less worry. Five stars for Wounded Warrior Homes!

As a member of the board of directors of Wounded Warrior Homes, I have seen firsthand the positive impacts our organization has made to the veteran community of San Diego County.

Hearing from veterans who found the transition back to civilian life difficult and learning they were helped along the way by the organization is a testament to the dedication of the board and those who support the organization. Whether through transitional housing, referral assistance or something as simple as goods from pantry, these positive impacts send a message to our veterans that they are important and welcomed as valued members of our community.

Among the many non-profits that serve injured veterans, Wounded Warrior Homes, located in north San Diego County, is among the very few that offer a comprehensive and individualized program with room and board for up to two years for those post-911 vets that are homeless due to the effects of the "invisible injuries" of PTSD and/or TBI. Established almost 10 years ago by Mia and Steve Roseberry, WWHs has successfully transitioned many dozens of vets into successful civilian lives while also serving active and veteran families from WWH's food pantry. And this has been accomplished with a small but highly dedicated and efficient staff, keeping costs as low as possible due to the high cost of housing in San Diego County. Our funding depends heavily on donations, of course, but it should be noted that every dollar raised stays here in San Diego County. For these reasons and more, I am proud to be associated as a volunteer and Board member of Wounded Warrior Homes since 2014. Our injured veterans deserve nothing less.

In 1966, my first year of college, a guy in my design class had recently returned from Viet Nam. He was older than almost everyone in the class, maybe mid-20's. In our first semester it became clear that he was by far the best designer in our freshman class. But he was also extremely quiet. Being a military brat, I was interested in his military experience, which he told me in general terms was combat related. As the semester progressed he excelled but always kept us fellow design students at arm's length, never attending any parties, football games or joining in for pizza. A loner. When the second semester began and we returned from Xmas break, he was not in attendance. We never heard from him again. Years later I came to realize he was probably a victim of PTSD. And as I reflected back, I often wondered if he received assistance to overcome his issues and enjoy life as the talented designer that I remember him to be. Back then, of course, I doubt assistance was available. Today, thankfully that has changed. With Wounded Warrior Homes, I have found a highly effective program including housing for just that sort of veteran right here in North County. It has been my honor to assist them since 2014.

I came to Wounded Warrior Homes needing a place to stay as I was transitioning back into my own independent living. The team did a thorough intake to assess my situation and was able to help me by ensuring I adjust into their home. They took feedback regarding my dietary needs and welcomed me into their pantry that is stocked with a variety of food for me to prepare on my own. I attended a financial mentoring class with my peers and got immediate feedback on some questions I had about building credit. I had a chance to speak with the Co-founder and she was very receptive to feedback about the program and ways that she could assist me personally. Upon completion of the program I was gifted some kitchen and home necessities to help me move into my own place. The staff were always welcoming and willing to hear me out with genuine care. I recommend this organization to my fellow veterans who are in need of a smooth transition.

I've done a few projects with this organization at one of their homes for veterans. The housing and support they provide these vets is great.

The staff are passionate about what they do and it shows. I would recommend this organization to anyone who wants to help make a positive impact helping veterans.

As I transitioned from the military, I didn’t know where to make my first step so I lived with family for a bit until they had to go. I was stuck in a gray area in my life where I didn’t know how to make my move. Wounded warrior Homes got me in their program and helped me transition from all my issues. I just knew that once I am stable I had to move away after almost 2 years of being in the program. They’ve helped me to become the person I am today. My biggest problem I thought nothing was wrong. They gave me support to put my goals to reality. I got to see a different light if I don’t chase my goal or dreams, I am doing what I hate and I am staying in the same place, no progression. Thank you wounded warrior homes for my progression through my hard times. I can’t repay anything for what the nonprofit has done for me and other veterans, but I will appreciate everything, because it’s a choice to help those having a hard time to stand. Thank you for helping me get on my feet, Wounded Warrior Homes Inc!!!!

WWH leadership and staff take such extraordinary steps to ensure each veteran served receives the right tools at the right time to stabilize, engage, and thrive. To optimally serve veterans, a commitment to performance excellence must be present – at Wounded Warrior Homes this focus on excellence is evident in every action. From adherence to best practices in veteran service delivery to WWH’s complete focus on ensuring successful veteran outcomes Wounded Warrior Homes remains a stellar example of how nonprofits can change the world. We need Wounded Warrior Homes to remain a strong resource in the community – the lives of combat veterans literally depend upon this work.

My commitment to WWH is directly related to their commitment to our veterans.
I cannot speak highly enough of Wounded Warrior Homes’ leadership, staff, volunteers, and outcomes. Budget discipline, transparency, planned growth, and impact tracking ensures Wounded Warrior Homes meets the needs of our modern combat veterans suffering from unmanaged, and often undiagnosed TBI and PTSD.

I have been engaged with Wounded Warrior Homes since 2016 as a proposal writer, donor, and community advocate. My father was a career officer in the United States Navy predisposing me to support stellar veteran organizations. I am proud to be associated with this organization.

My name is Angel C. Alvarez I’m a U.S. Marine Corps disabled combat veteran. I served 8 years enlisted and returned back home with invisible wounds from my combat action in theater. I found out about wounded warrior homes from a good friend, fellow wounded warrior veteran, U.S. Navy Corpsman(Ret), Ben Kilhefner. We we’re both recipients of trained service dogs for our disability needs. Because of my ptsd, panic & anxiety attacks, etc... employment has been challenging which in turn is strainIng financially. I’m on a limited income of disability compensation pension, so I have to really be frugal with everything. As I’ve aforementioned, I have a service dog, He’s a Belgian Malinois named Jax. My friend Ben told me about how he was a recipient alumni of wounded warrior homes and a program they have called AniMeals, in which dog food is donated for wounded warrior veterans who are struggling financially and their service dogs. The program has been a godsend for me and my dog. From the very start Stacey Pauley and the whole staff have been nothing but generous, caring and helpful. Not only have they helped with dog food donations but I also have used the excellent food pantry for us struggling veterans in the program. The use of their pantry has helped fill my fridge and kitchen during these trying and difficult times when I can’t. I’m grateful and thankful for what wounded warrior does selflessly for me and other veterans in the community, they are truly a blessing!

Wounded Warrior Homes (WWH) is doing it right and one of the best programs I know of. They offer housing for up to two years to veterans who are recovering from TBIs and/or PTSD, and homeless or at risk of being homeless. A two year program is almost unheard of anymore. The trend now because of funding dollars is “housing first” programs that offer housing and services for an average of 90 days. As a social worker who has worked with traumatized and homeless veterans, I know it can take a lot longer to begin to heal, stabilize and make/execute plans to move forward in their lives.

I chose to support this program and join the board because of their model and also because of the integrity of the program, the compassionate care offered by the staff, and their passion for and dedication to our veterans.

Within San Diego County, Wounded Warrior Homes is among the top-rated service providers for veterans with PTSD and TBI. The leadership has been highly awarded for vision and entrepreneurial tactics to address the often difficult transition from service life to civilian life. They have provided more than 200 months of housing to single male veterans who struggle with PTSD and TBI. Helping them get jobs, occupational training or getting a college degree are among their hands-on support.

Wounded Warrior Homes supports US military veterans challenged with PTSD and provides housing to homeless veterans. As an organization, their integrity and passion are unmatched. I’ve always been skeptical donating to charities with the concern that my time and/or money would not reach the people who need it. With Wounded Warrior Homes, I have seen firsthand how the veterans are impacted by the services and programs available. The individuals that make up the team of staff and volunteers at WWH are some of the most inspiring and generous people I've ever met. There are very few organizations I trust as much as WWH, and their impact on veterans and their families both locally and nationally is incredible.

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.

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 volunteer I have participated in events that Wounded Warrior Homes have hosted and I can truly say that this organization and the people that are part of this organization truly care about veterans and making sure that they are being taken care of and that they are receiving their benefits.

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.

I had the opportunity to work with WWH at a work day out at the veterans house! It was well organized and the highlight of the day was when I had the chance to chat with one of the veterans that is in the program! Thanks to the staff at WWH for all you do to help our veteran community!

The stars state the true fact of this program, as have most who have served, this program goes above and beyond what is expected of them. It creates a platform from which wounded military veterans and transitioning service members are able to calm the storm and give focus on what needs to be done to succeed. The Wounded Warrior Homes reach is far and wide and has networking branches which extend further than any other program I have encountered, programs that are not even heard of (At least ones that I had no idea of) are at their fingertips and this is the type of outreach veterans need to become healthy, or more successful on their path through this world.
