We got a phone call today that we were selected for a home. Could not be happier. My son now has a room of his own and a yard to play in. Our family is so grateful. Thank you MWSF. You have no idea how much this has impacted our lives. My 7 yr old son cannot contain himself! My fiance' cried when we got the call.

All I can say is when a person feels down and out, you should really hang in there because you never know when your prayers will be answered and MWSF did just that, when they awarded my wife and I a mortgage free home in Illinois. After 10 years of service and three, year long deployments I was medically discharged from the US Army and fell upon many challenges. My wife and I ended up moving home and staying with family in a home that was not ours. I am sure others have had this happen and know that you never feel like yourself in another persons home when you are living there. Well after staying for quit sometime, we found out we were expecting a little baby on the way which caused us to worry almost instantly as to what we would do. Our prayers were answered when MWSF called and said we were awarded the home. We are still in shock, we fell almost silent when we were notified because we had never had anything that great happen in our favor( minus our little one coming :)). We have so much respect for organizations like this that really do give back to the veterans and military and not just talk the talk. Thank you MWSF and always keep doing what you do.!!!!!!!!

There are no words to describe what a blessing MWSF has been to our family...but I will try. After returning from a tour in Iraq (and 26 total years in the military), my husband suffered a TBI which triggered severe PTSD. My husband needed a fresh start, free from triggers and reminders of the past. Our mortgage-free home, that was provided by the Military Warrior Support Foundation, has allowed my husband (and our family) to experience LIFE again. Our home is in Florida> in a peaceful, and quiet neighborhood. This home is a BLESSING beyond BLESSINGS! My husband feels SAFE here and at peace. We also have the peace that comes from not having a mortgage hanging over our heads. Our prayer is that GOD will continue to bless MWSF and all of those involved. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

My husband was injured in Iraq. He suffers from a TBI, PTSD and tinnitus as a result from multiple blasts and IEDs. We were told about this program through the VA caregiver program and honestly, thought it was "too good to be true"...but NOT TRUE! The individuals that we spoke with were so professional and organized. It is very clear that they have a system that works and use it the exact same way for each applicant. Great people. Awesome LIFE CHANGING gift to give a soldier and his/her family!

MWSF gave my family stability and hope for our future. Not having to worry about a mortgage took so much of our burden away. We will struggle with many things but what we don't have to worry about is a place to call home and a place to raise our child. We are so grateful for your dedication to our family. It's an honor to be part of the MWSF family!

MWSF changed our life. If this agency was not here for us, I know that my soldier would not be the father and husband he is today. The relief of a new life, a new start, and nurturing advice to get us from 'derailed without hope' to 'en pointe and succeeding'. Words cannot convey the change that has encompassed our entire family just because of Military Warriors Support Foundation. They are a blessing and an answered prayer. I urge other soldiers to go to them and apply because the aid they have given us went over and beyond our wildest dreams. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

Honestly, I don't know and I get scared at the thought of where I would be if it was not for the Military Warriors Support Foundation. I went through a very rough divorce in 2013 and was living in my parents camper on the side of their house. I had my children every weekend in a camper and after about a month it turned into full time. Being a single dad with full custody of my 4 children so fast, I had no where to turn until I found the website for the Foundation. They jumped right into action and before I knew it I was at the ceremony and given the keys to my new home. I could not hold back the tears that day in front of everyone. The Military Warriors Support Foundation has truly given my 4 children and I a way to cope with the divorce in a comfortable and secure setting. All of my children are enjoying life and all of them finished last year with honor roll and I could not be happier. I am forever grateful and a true example at what the foundation can do for you.

Hello and Thank You....Military Warriors Support Foundation has changed The Duety Family for life. Before we heard about MWSF we were living in one trashy neighborhood and house after another barely getting by with the bills and the rent. We were unable to correct our credit score to be able to even get a loan for a car much less our own home. Thanks to MWSF we have brought our credit score up, learned how to better our finances, and also learned how to budget our money a lot better.
The Program is helpful and gives the Current Military as well as retired Military the ability to own there own home where most would be unable to.
I hope that MWSF can continue to give peace and assurance to other Military Families for a long time to come. We have given advice to friends of ours that are both current and retired Military about this program in hopes that they to can succeed with there life long goals and dreams.
I am so pleased with the experience that myself and Wife have received with MWSF and how much information that the Budget Counselor has given us and advice that she provides us. She truly wants us to succeed in life.

Military Warriors Support Foundation (MWSF) awarded us a house, I must say it is one of the greatest gifts I could have ever received. They helped me pay down my debt to where I have only a car payment and utilities to pay, I have no credit card debit and it's because of MWSF. THANK YOU so much MWSF.

MWSF awarded me a home in 2014, here I am 4th of July weekend in 2016 with a lock on my door and no notice. I'm scavenging for resources with my service dog. I am a Purple Heart recipient and they treated me like trash when I couldn't pay unnecessary fees on time due to being on a fixed income. This entire experience has been a nightmare that has left me homeless, hungry and alone.

After reviewing all the information i could find on this charity i have come to the conclusion that this is a very high speed program to help my battles out. My wife suffers from PTSD due to MST because of scum bag NCOs while she was downrange in Afghanistan and i am a medically retired army combat veteran that was injured in Iraq and we have 4 kids now. When we got out the army it was like we where case aside and forgotten about. The only thing i was ever any good at was taken away and my family suffered because of it. We racked up debt, rental judgment and are still living day to day as of now. I pray that the military warriors support foundation reviews my wifes case because we filed under her and we get into the program and a home for my family. I was raised to qork for everythjng butbim very limited due to my disability and my kids deserve a better future. This program for a mortgage free home and into this program. I would shout the name of this organization and be a honored to help them any way i could if they did this for us.

My husband and I were just awarded a home through MWSF. We are so grateful to have our first home where we can raise our son and build relationships in our new community. Our experience with the organization has always been positive and we are thankful to everyone who has helped us along in the process. We are so excited to have a home to call our own.

Today on Thanksgiving Day 2015, we are thankful to Military Warrior Support Foundation, for their kindness and for changing our lives in the biggest way. On Nov 18, 2015, our family received a mortgage free home, that was and is beyond what we could have ever dreamed of. Our cup runneth over of JOY and GRATITUDE for this foundation. The amazing people who work for this foundation have just blessed our socks off!! How can we ever say thank you enough?? We can't...Our families lives have changed now from generations going forward b/c of MWSF, Humana Military, US Bank and Five Brothers. We are so blessed by this foundation that my wife and I just wanna be apart of what they are doing, we would love to work with Military Warriors, play apart in these blessings and we want to continue to change lives, pay it forward and help these great men and women and their families. Its kind of like once you get a taste of this blessing, you just want to give it back. Pay it forward.

My family would also like to Thank God the Father, our Jesus Christ for this tremendous blessing and favor shown towards our family. We love you Lord!

The McAlister Family, (Jason, Lendie, Emmy, Jack and Sam)

Where do i start, I been with this program for about a year now. Since i been in the program I one person got fired, another one quit. My mentor is ready to quit, she don't like the way they tell her to handle her veterans. I live in a hotel more then my house, the house shouldn't been give to anyone. To get anything done for the house it take three to four months. by the time they ready to start repair your home it would of cause more damage to the house. Program Manager Family Transition & Mentoring, which is a new person but couldn't due their job as a Family Financial Coordinator | Family Transition. If you want to give to someone there another charity just like this, which is way better. Oh......... I must add check into the house once you get it, you will found out that you owe back taxes, you have fines on your home. The home warranty not paid, so when you trying an fix things without them you can't.

Military Warrior Foundation has been a HUGE blessing to us. Between them and Operation Homefront these two organizations surpass every kind of word that could describe awesome!!! The ONLY one thing that we wish is that they could stay in more contact with us after blessing us with our BEAUTIFUL home! However, they have done SOOO much more for us than WWP! And you can see it, especially with the new program that they have coming out with vehicles for veterans... Like really.... Who does that??? Who besides this organization has shown this much LOVE and care for our brave men and women?? So far just two that I've seen, and one is Military Warrior foundation!

Before MWSF my family of 8 was living in a tent until we could get any VA benefits before we even thought about looking for a place to live. It was early summer when we received a call that we had been chosen to receive a house! The relief was so incrediblely overwhelming we had to stop driving to process the information. We received our house in June of 2013 and have not regretted it in any way. Through the process we have learned a great deal about ourselves and what we can accomplish outside of the military. We have learned how to live off a stricter budget, how to approach ANY type of credit and most of all that there organizations who are honest and have not forgotten about us once we leave service!
We have had the opportunity to meet many of the people from the foundation including Ken Eakes, Gen. Cisco, Andrea and many others while enjoying many events with those people and have even made friends with others through these meetings. This program is a blessing and a learning experience for us and we are both very grateful and appreciative with humble hearts for the opportunities the foundation has given us.
