Who is Wounded Warrior Homes And What Do We Do?
Wounded Warrior Homes, Inc., is a San Marcos, California based 501(c)3 non-profit whose mission is to provide transitional housing and re-integrative services to post 9/11 veterans with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and/or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
Wounded Warrior Homes’ vision is to facilitate the transition from wounded warrior to successful civilian, for all the veterans we help.
Our values encompass support and service, compassion, collaboration, integrity, competence and respect for the dignity of each person.
The military estimates that one-fifth of all troops with brain injuries will have prolonged or lifelong symptoms requiring continuing care.
