I am a retired social worker, new to the San Diego area, who was looking to do some volunteer work. I heard about Wounded Warrior Homes from my cousin, a retired U.S Marine who had taken a business class with the Executive Director, Mia Roseberry. I was really excited when I met with Mia because I had the type of work experience that I felt would be beneficial to their program. I had prior experience as a Regional Administrator and Program Director of several transitional residential programs. I have been working with Wounded Warrior Homes for over two years and seen it grow from a start-up to a fully functional program serving the needs of veterans. None of this would have been possible were it not for the tireless work of Steve and Mia Roseberry and their volunteers. The generosity and support of businesses and community members has been outstanding and allowed us to open the first home Sept. 14, 2012. Our challenge now is to increase our capacity as we have had to turn away other needy veterans.

I choose to volunteer for Wounded Warrior Homes initially for college credit. I am truly honored to work with such a great group of people. Everyone here has a big heart and desire to help those who have been injured with traumatic brain injury or PTSD. I am very happy to be a part of this worthy cause.

I joined the board recently and was impressed with the passion everyone has for helping veterans with traumatic brain injury and PTSD. Talking to the veterans who are or have been part of the program and hearing how much it helped them when they really needed it brought tears to my eyes.

I have been a board member for about 2.5 years now. There's no better cause to serve than helping anyone who has ever served in any branch of the military in any capacity. I love being on this board as we are all dedicated to and deeply rooted in this cause. Each one of us is connected to the military in one way or another. I have been in San Diego since a very young age and anyone who's lived her that long will tell you that it's nearly impossible to not feel proud of our military and protective of them at the same time.

Mia & Steve are two individuals who would literally give you the shirt off their back and I believe all the board members follow suit, making this a very cohesive group. I'm proud to me a member and hope to help as many as we can.

I have been on the Advisory Board since 2012 and couldn't be happier to be part of such a worthy cause. Mia and Steve Roseberry go above and beyond the call of duty to help soldiers with traumatic brain injuries and PTSD. I have seen first hand the difference Wounded Warrior Homes has made in service members' lives and it is truly remarkable. A fantastic organization.

I have been on the board for Wounded Warrior homes virtually since we were approved as a 501 c 3. The passion that Mia & Steve Roseberry bring is the kind that inspires you to want to do more. It is a small organization and the funds are 100% to benefit the cause. This is nice as sometimes larger organizations have pulled away from their cause. I believe we are working to help give service members that are struggling from their injuries and leaving the military some place to go to get them on their feet. This is a serious need and one that isn't being addressed enough.

I have a son who is in the military and many family members who have served our country so WWH has a major sweet spot for me. I get a lump in my throat when I think of the service members of our military who voluntarily dedicate their life, and potentially put themselves in danger, to protect our freedoms. To come back from serving with PTSD or BTI is an extremely difficult thing, something most of us cannot truly understand. So, to be on the board and to volunteer for WWH is an honor.

WWH is run by two of the most genuine and giving people I have ever come across - Mia and Stevce Roseberry. Their dedication and care is unlike anything I have ever seen and they make daily sacrifices for WWH. On a business level, they run WWH with the highest level of integrity and attention to every penny. This is NOT an organization with big budgets and big salaries. It is an organization that has one clear objective - to give as much to the service members as possible so they can have a better transition into civiian life. I am so proud to be on the board of WWH, and serving with others who donate their time and money to help out this wonderful organization.

I can actually say that THIS ORGANIZATION is run by GENUINE PEOPLE! Mia and Steve are two very hard working people and are devoted to their cause. They show the best in what people can be and do for others. The office staff (1) and volunteers' contribution exemplify how the unity of purpose works for the betterment of the human spirit.
I praise all who make this work, for it is a LOT of work.

Wounded Warrior Homes steps in to help our vets in the critical transition from military service to the civilian world. This can be a difficult process made even more difficult if traumatic brain injury or other factors are in play. WWH is a great, young charity that has already made a huge difference in the lives of the vets it has served.

I am an emergency physician who has been fortunate enough to work within the military medicine system for the past 7 years. On a daily basis I encounter wounded warriors who are frightened and confused on where the next steps of their journey may take them. Where can they go? They want to stay close to their military buddies who understand where they have been. They want to figure out how to be productive, useful, and use their skills and become further educated. They want to be close to the medical care that they may continue to need. They need to relearn the basic art of living outside the chain of command. Wounded Warrior Homes, Inc fills this need. Being located in southern California, we are fortunate enough to have many community and state colleges within a few miles of "our home", we have financial advisors who help set savings goals and allow these men to get back on their feet, and we are very close to numerous Veteran's Hospitals and clinics and Naval Medical Centers providing mental health and physical healthcare access.
Our overhead costs have been kept exceptionally low, our board is very active in our volunteer pool, and we can show the community that our monies are spent in a thoughtful and purposeful way. Our graduates of the program attest that sometimes just having a safe place to fall and time to adjust is just what they need. Not a hand out, just a helpful hand up.

I joined Wounded Warrior Homes (WWH) Board in April 2013. I choose WWH because I wanted to be of service to our returning wounded veterans in need and I believe that the team of WWH is doing a good & noble work by providing the needed veterans a place to live.

I came to Wounded Warrior Homes (WWH) in March 2012 because I am a veteran and I wanted to make a difference in the lives of other veterans. I was extremely pleased to find that WWH is an all-volunteer organization. This NOT (unlike quite a few other organizations) a money-making operation. All of the principles that I have met, co-founders, Executive Director and board members, are sincere, deeply committed individuals who want to help the brave men and women injured in Iraq and Afghanistan overcome their injuries and transition from active-duty military service to independent living as a veteran of foreign wars.
