My families experience with Wounded Warrior Family Support was amazing from the start. Their application process was very smooth and easy to fill out to make sure you get all the information in properly. Once accepted we were able to schedule our family vacation for Oct, 2015 at the Bahama Bay Resort in Orlando for a week. Also along with the week in Orlando the organization donated free theme park tickets to the local large theme parks and a couple of gift cards to help cover cost of vacations. My family and I enjoyed the time we were able to spend together and go to some of the parks we have never be before. It's great organization and people like this that make it a lot easier to deal with some of the thing I personally and my family go through on a daily basis.
We are a family of 8. My husband is a wounded veteran and I care for him and our 6 girls. WWFS has been an amazing blessing with the help and support we have received. Wendy has been very understanding and willing to work through our issues as a family.
Wounded Warrior Family Support helped save my husbands life.
My husband is a Combat Marine, who was suffering horribly with PTSD, Night Terrors, Flashbacks & TBI. Not to mention other Combat related physical medical issues. My husband refused to seek treatment as he was the Sole provider for our family of 6.
They were instrumental in providing the help we needed, So he could get the help He needed.
Wendy, the Respite Director has been a continual support for us emotionally, and spiritually. Where would I be, and our family with out their encouragement, and support.
My husband is on the road now to Recovery. Which means, that our family is too.
God Bless Wounded Warrior Family Support. May God continue to richly bless this Non Profit, and all whom serve the Wounded Veterans and their families.
Wounded Warrior Family Support has been absolutely wonderful for our family!!! We went through so much during transition and they were there for us. We would never have been able to get through all that we faced without them!!! Even after initial contact and services they continued to contact us to check on our well being and continued to offer us services and resources! They have been truly amazing and I owe them more thanks for what they have done for my family than I could possibly give them!! Love them all so much! Thank you WWFS!! For truly caring and asking nothing in return!
I want to thank all at the Wounded Warrior Organization for the out standing trip to Bahama Bay Resort and tickets to three theme parks in Orlando, all expense paid made possible for my son's family and I. When he told me of it I was planning on driving from NC to meet them. When my son called to tell me that they were paying for my trip too as caretaker, I was blown away. Was a once in a lifetime gathering for all of us to be together and having fun.
It was a blast we had the best time didn't have to worry of nothing except to have fun and relax. It was like I was a kid again especially at Wet& Wild, I at 60 years old kept up with the young ones, not even sore the next day from all that stair climbing! Then Universal Studios got to have my photo taken with my favorite Transformer Bumble Bee, loved the ride too! Harry Potter ride was fun, but the dragon one was way too rough for me. I made a hit with my grandkids for they were wanting to ride with me! go figure grandma was the cool one! A week I will not forget! I do donate to WW and will continue to do hope everyone else does too! I pray for all service personal to stay safe.
First and foremost I just want to say that I pray that the staff at Wounded Warrior Family Support and your loved ones are in the best of health, body, mind, spirit and heart.
My sincere Thank you is not enough for what you and WWFS has done for my family and myself. We had an amazing and fun loving time at Yellowstone. The experience was just so Heavenly, especially because it involved spending it with my family. My deepest Thank you again for blessing us with such an amazing gift. Thank you for the love and care that you have demonstrated to me for the service in gave this great nation. Its because of organizations and people like yourself that I went to serve to defend this nation. You all will forever be engraved in our hearts...nothing can ever take away what WWFS has done for us. May the Lord bring an abundance of Peace, Love, Happiness, and Joy to everyone that was able to make this blessing happen. Thank you again for sharing your hearts with us.

Thanking everyone involve first of all, we were some grateful and blessed to be able to take a vacation that took us outside the home. I can not even begin to express our feelings. Just to see my family all so relax having fun and even the weather was perfect all because the WWFS. Thank you for moments and memory that will last forever in our family generation of story be told. GoD bless
First of all, Thank You to everyone who made this trip possible! It was such a great & positive memory we made as a family! When dealing PTSD & TBI I always say that my spouse isn't the only wounded warrior. My kids are too. They are the lil warriors in this battle that get left unheard or forgotten. They have been through a deployment and had to say goodbye to their daddy. The next they're welcoming a stranger. They've seen him at his worst and continue to walk on eggshells. I reluctantly applied for this trip. Crowds, noise, fireworks just doesn't work for us but this was different! We did rush through the parks, picked end seats in the stands at shows, just minor adjustments. This trip made our family seem whole again. It was worry free. Dealing with him is a lot and not having to worry about the finance part of it was even better! Seeing my husband smiling and posing with characters, enjoying rides with our kids was priceless! I can never thank you enough for this opportunity. I hope to some day give back and help another family!!!!
WWFS really made myself and my family feel special. They sent us to Universal Studios in Orlando, FL. The accommodations were above our expectations, and they provided everything we needed. To see the smile on my children's faces everyday, was priceless.
WWFS allowed my family to take a once in a lifetime trip to Yellowstone park in Wyoming. We had the best time, reconnected and enjoyed exploring one of our nations most incredible national parks! Every day was something new and exciting for my family and I to explore and learn. They thought of everything from travel accommodations, spending money and all lodging planning. We are so happy were were chosen and I hope more families get the chance to experience this great service for our wounded.
