Wounded Warrior Homes
Wounded Warrior Homes is a grassroots charitable non-profit chartered to provide transitional housing to single post-9/11 combat veterans with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and Post-Traumatic Stress (PTS). We are citizens, like you, who deeply care about our nation and appreciate the sacrifices of those who have served in armed conflict to protect our country, our nation’s interests, our people and those in other nations. Consider joining the Wounded Warrior Homes team as a corporate sponsor, volunteer or donor.
There are 433,000 Wounded Warriors who suffer from Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and 13.8% of veterans will be diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress. Even though we can not provide transitional housing for all, here at WWH we pride ourselves on the fact that we never say no to a veteran and have directly referred and help over 1,300 veterans to date.
Tragically, on average an estimated 22 veterans commit suicide per day in America. A recent study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association Psychiatry found that 20% of veterans with TBI reported suicidal thoughts. A growing body of research suggest that stable housing may help reduce stress in individuals. Reduction of risk, such as stress is an important aspect of suicide prevention.
For the men and women who serve our country with Traumatic Brain Injury and Post Traumatic Stress, a home is the simplest, yet most essential item in their lives. It is a comfort and a hideaway at the end of a long day, and a place to call their own that gives them independence. Wounded Warrior Homes provides homes for veterans who served to protect ours.
Veterans transitional housing is essential to service members returning from active duty. Many service members do not have the option to move home to continue their outpatient medical care and access the services they need. Families may live several hours from the closest VA Hospital or they may not live by one at all. By providing affordable transitional housing and hands-on resources, Wounded Warrior Homes provides a defined path for each member to transition from active-duty military service to a veteran of foreign wars. We are accepting applications for current availability.
