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.

Wounded Warrior Homes is a great nonprofit organization that is greatly concerned with the well being of veterans. 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.

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!
