Helping Those Who Protect Our Freedom
Wounded Warrior Homes was established to serve our heroes and provide them with a safe environment of support and supplemental services to aid them in transitioning back from the front lines to the homefront. Homeless veterans experiencing the effects of Post Traumatic Stress or Traumatic Brain Injury are handled with care and respect as they are taken from the streets and given the opportunity to flourish in a positive environment that not only contributes to the treatment of their injuries sustained, but also points them on a path to success in their new civilian life. Case workers help them make decisions about advancing their education, finding jobs, and even provide resources in financial planning so as to ensure a successful transition.
For over 5 years Wounded Warrior Homes has contributed to the success of ending homelessness in our veteran population by providing more than 11,000 nights of transitional housing. With your help we can increase this effort and bring an end to the troubles faced by our heroes.
“The day before… I was standing in homeless shelter, now I have a home. It’s important to have an organization like Wounded Warrior Homes because we are facing a big change in our life and your support truly saves lives.”
-Robert Caudill, United States Marine Corps
What Our Veterans Say About Our Programs
“Before I reached out for help from Wounded Warriors Foundation I was homeless. I lived in my car in Vista, California for 30 days. This event was very self-reflective and humbling. I never begged for money but I did go to bed hungry some nights. I finally enrolled in the VA and was happily directed to the WWH. On June 15th, 2014 I moved in and my life drastically changed. I hope to one day get the opportunity to teach, train, motivate and encourage others by either becoming a pastor, mentor, school teacher or a guidance counselor.”
“Wounded Warrior Homes has been there for me, and helped me out with hard times when my service was done for the country. My life was missing people in my life that care. I suffer from post-traumatic stress and traumatic brain injury. It’s been tough getting my life together. I would like to say thank you to the Wounded Warrior Homes staff for all the assistants.”
“One of the greatest needs for our returning service men and women is going to be transitional housing.Our vets get to a point when they are finished with in-patient rehab, but they are not ready to live independently.Wounded Warrior Homes fills that need.”
— Chip Dykes, Chief Warrant Officer 3, USMC. Ret.
