Military Warrior Support Foundation has help me achieve my goals. They have taken a lot of stress away and let me focus on going to school and graduating. I recently graduated this December of 2016 with a Bachelors in Science from the University of Houston. Leaving the military can be tough on some if not most; Military Warriors Support Foundation has help me transition and build a strong foundation.

This organization has helped me build a better future. I do not have to worry about trying to make rent at the end of every month while going to school full time. I will be graduating this December 2016 with a Bachelors in Science at the University of Houston. The organization sets up a call every month to talk about issues that you might have and will try their best to assist you anyway they can. I am very blessed for them to come into my life.

With Gratitude

Not only am I $78,000 out of debt with the aid of monthly financial counseling... MWSF gave me and my family a place to call our home. Without MWSF, I whole heartily believe that me and my Wife would be homeless or stuggling in a 400 sq ft apartment... and without this house they gave me for free (with 3 yr commitment), I don't think me and my Wife would have been blessed with our two newest babies in our family. MWSF literally saved my life and massively improved my family's quality of life. I CANNOT express how grateful and respectful I am of this Organization! May God Bless this non-profit even more so they truely can make the ultimate impact NO OTHER (in my opinion, Coalition to Salute America's Heroes is runner up for sure!) organization can! I still live in my house almost a year now after my Deed transfer. Next spring I am selling this wonderful house of which I invested $20,000 of remodeling and new Air Conditioner Unit with some help of other nonprofits (dog kinked the compressor line, no bieno!). I have purchased land in my home State and plan on starting construction soon.... the sale of this house is paying for everything being built. So in essence, MWSF gave me the opportunity to live my dream as a Homesteader and live it where I want too. The donated house was never entended to be a platform to reach my dreams... my dreams of Homesteading recently developed over the last few years.

Thanks again MWSF, God Bless!

We lost our home in 2015 due to mold and mildew. We found out last week that we were being awarded a mortgage-free home in NC! We are in complete shock. We have been through a very rough patch in our lives. MWSF has been amazing! We can not wait to move into our beautiful home:) Thank you MWSF so much for this home!

MWSF has blessed my son and I with a wonderful home. Thank you for such a generous opportunity. This was totally unexpected and a memory that will last forever. My son and I are looking forward to our new start on life and making this house our home.

- update,
we are in the final process of transferring the deed of the house over to us, lots of good people behind the scene to make this process smooth and painless.
Like we have mentioned before, there is no words to describe how grateful we are, grateful to MWSF, donors and lots of other generous people that made this possible.
The feeling is like what we felt over in the begging of this journey, unreal, happiness, and tears.
We can't believe that this beautiful home is ours, a home that offer us a sacred space to retreat from our daily lives issues, a home that offer us a sense of safety, a home that is bringing lots of good memories past and future.
Over the three years we have experienced the joy of doing some beautification projects outside and inside. This experience has also brought me some sense of calm and relaxation and pride. It is kind of therapeutic for me to work around the house, because I knew that after three years, this beautiful home will be ours and the feeling of a pride homeowner.
MWSF not only donated this house to us, but they have also provided a safety blanket over the shoulders of myself and my family.
They also provided us with avery kind and helpful, financial mentor.
Deena Noonan, our financial advisor has educated me and my wife on how to better manage our finances, and about the many responsibilities of being a homeowner. With her help, we have finally paid off all of our debt, debt that couldn't probably never allow us to own a home.
With her help, we can gladly say that we are ready to tackle the many responsibilities that come with being a homeowner. And the responsibilities of of using money and credit in a responsible way.
I don't get tired of saying this but I truly believe that MWSF is the true definitions of what making a difference looks like, they building hopes, dreams, joy and happiness for our Wounded Warriors and their families, gold start families and many others.
My family and I will be forever grateful to you, Bank of America, the many other donors and countless people that made this amazing non-profit organization possible and our dream of owing a beautiful home.
From the bottom of my hart, thank you very much and God bless you all.

Sincerely,
The Oribio's family

Where would you be without Military Warriors Support Foundation?
I will be probably be living in the same undesirable area and same apartment I was living before be giving this amazing opportunity of owning a house.
MWSF has giving my family and I a decent neighborhood and house to call home. A house that my family and I are proud to come home, a house that is sacred for our family well being, and a house that give us the opportunity to get away from everything and just enjoyed us being a family.
Thank you to MWSF, donors and volunteers, God bless you all!

MWSF has given me a home where I can plant roots and start a family on a sound foundation. I no longer have to worry that my rent is going to continue to rise to the point of forcing me to move or worse. Without MWSF I wouldn't have a place to call my own, my home.

MWSF gave me and my family a mortgage free home in the state we wanted. The area the house was in could not have been better. MWSF truly set us up for success for the rest of our lives.

From a Retired Veteran SSG Brian Bentley. The Military Warrior Support Foundation has been a blessing to my life and my family. Having this incredible opportunity to live in a home that we can call our own and not worry about a mortgage has instrumentally given us a hope and a chance to live again. The mentorship program has revolutionized our lives by allowing us to pay off debt and learn how to manage our finances the right way. If not for the Military Warrior Support Foundation I would still be struggling just to make ends meet with debt and expenses. Having our first child in June would have been so stressful, this has truly given us a chance to raise a family and have a peace about our future. I can focus on being a Father and I can focus on integrating back into living instead of just surviving. Words can not express how grateful my family and I are for this wonderful Foundation. The Military Warrior Support Foundation has totally changed our lives forever. God Bless the Military Warrior Support Foundation and all the people that are in it. Thank You!

Mwsf has been a true blessing to me and my family we can not describe what it's been like . One is they got me to pay attention to what I was buying, and they really helped me get my old debt paid off which is huge.
I just hope other veterans gets a chance to do this program and get a leg up on life

MWSF is a amazing donor foundation that allowed me to become a home owner. Being a disabled Purple Heart Marine Veteran I am eternally grateful to everyone who worked together to donate a home to me. Semper Fi.
