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.

Small group with big hearts. Thank you for all you do! Well organized volunteer program...As a volunteer there is nothing worse than giving up your Saturday and going to a disorganized site for the day. They seem to have it together...

I'm 11 years old and helped at WWH to dig a trench for a water line that will supply the Greenhouse that will help feed the veterans in the house. It was a good day and I learned so much from the staff and I also found out about R.E.D. Friday (Remember Everyone Deployed) and now wear red every Friday! I can't wait to help again!

I have nothing but great things to say about Wounded Warrior Homes! The staff and volunteers are amazing and I love that they are a local organization helping veterans through the transition from active duty. It's important to remember that some wounds are not visible.

I was able to hear from a wounded veteran first hand about how WWH helped him get back on his feet. Inspiring to know that a little help can lay such a solid foundation for success. Impressed.

I had the honor of being an intern with Wounded Warrior Homes for over a year. A great organization! The staff are very dedicated and committed to helping our wounded warriors become productive, self-sufficient citizens in civilian life. The organization provides a full range of services for our wounded warriors including transitional housing, employment assistance, and case management. The organization goes to great measure to assure that every dollar raised is used in direct support of their mission. Being associated with Wounded Warrior Homes has been one of the most fulfilling experiences of my life. It's organizations like yours that really changes the lives of our wounded warriors in a positive and meaningful way! Thank you for letting me a part of your mission.

My experience volunteering for Wounded Warrior Homes was excellent. I took a group of my high school students there to volunteer this past summer and it definitely was the highlight of the summer. The staff was beyond nice, very personable and loved their jobs. All of this made it a pleasant experience for us. What I really appreciated was that they took the time out to speak to my group about veterans and the issues that wounded veterans, both physically and emotionally have to deal with. The hard work that the staff puts in day in and day out is definitely commendable. I look forward to volunteering again.

I volunteered with WWH for several weeks during 2015. WWH is truly a great organization comprised of first-class, passionate people. I could feel the enthusiasm and teamwork while I was in the office, and WWH's commitment to veterans is impressive.

I have worked with Wounded Warrior Homes on a variety of events. Work days at the house, fundraising tournaments and have donated my businesses resources are a few examples of recent work I have done with them as a volunteer. I am always impressed by how organized the team is and how focused they are on the veterans they are helping. This team truly cares!

We visited Wounded Warriors and did some volunteer work for them, not only were they kind and informative, they really made my students feel like their work mattered. Wounded Warrior Homes is great for groups, they are attentive, welcoming, and do great things for our Wounded Warriors. Thank you WWH Inc for an incredible experience.

I have been volunteering with WW Homes for about 6 months or so now and every experience has been fantastic! They have had opportunities for me to involve my children as well, and have welcomed them as if they were their own. It means a lot to me to teach my kids about giving back to the community and I am fortunate enough to have found that with Wounded Warrior Homes. Mia and Steve, as well as their entire staff are professional, but kind-hearted and awesome to work with. I plan to continue to work with them at upcoming events and hopefully encourage some others to join me. Such a great cause.

WWH is an amazing program that is passionate about helping veterans with PTS and TBI transition from active duty to civilian life. The dedication of the staff and BOD is exceptional. I couldn't have picked a better organization to volunteer with.

These folks are for real. They care, they welcomed me not only as a client, but a part of their family. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I joined the Board as a way of giving back. I soon found that I had found my niche and took over as Fundraising Chair. The events and outing give me a chance to express my enthusiasm for the work Wounded Warrior Homes is doing! Mia our CEO and Founder works 24/7 and smiles thru everything! The group of men we help were at one time living in their cars, couch surfing, jail, VA mental health ward etc... All felt they were alone until they met Mia's smiling warm embrace and Wounded Warrior Homes comfortable surroundings. After leaving us to go on to bigger and better things they continue to work with us in many ways. I had found something that I believed in and strive to help change the lives of many more homeless Veterans with TBI or PTS.
