Military Warriors Support Foundation
Transition out of the military to a civilian life is a very fragile time for these heroes and their families. The goal of the Military Warriors Support Foundation (MWSF) is to provide programs that facilitate a smooth and successful transition. Programs include home donation, academic and employment assistance, and recreational activities.
Through Homes4WoundedHeroes, a homes donation program, the MWSF awards 100% mortgage-free homes to combat wounded veterans. (A similar program, Homes4GoldStars, is available to Gold Star Spouses of Heroes who have fallen in combat.) In addition to the home, each family receives three years of family and financial mentoring so that they can learn the skills necessary to become happy and successful homeowners. This program not only changes the lives of the hero and their family, but it also changes the lives of the generations that follow.
The transition back to civilian life can have many hurdles for our nation’s returning heroes. Having reliable transportation is crucial, but fora variety of reasons, this is not always possible for our nation’s wounded heroes. To support these heroes, the MWSF has developed Transportation4Heroes, which will provide access to reliable transportation as well as mentoring opportunities to develop the skills necessary to handle long-term vehicle ownership.
When transitioning out of the military, there are many unknowns for the Heroes and families, to include where they wish to settle, long-term. Apartments4Heroes is designed to support combat wounded heroes and Gold Star spouses whom are not prepared to take on long-term homeownership. Through this program, MWSF will provide a 1-year lease, in a safe, quality apartment complex. In addition, each recipient will be provided with a family and financial mentor who will guide them through a structured mentoring program designed to increase financial literacy and family stability. The goal of this program is to prepare the recipient for long-term sustainability, with the added goal of transitioning to a more stable housing situation, be it as a renter, participation in a lease, or home ownership.
The MWSF also proudly provides support to ALL veterans by offering them employment assistance. Through their CEOs4Heroes program, they have developed partnerships with several top-named companies that are committed to giving veterans good-paying, career-oriented, jobs.
For family and recreational activities, the MWSF offers their Skills4Life program, which offers family getaways, golf outings, hunting and fishing trips for hundreds of heroes and their families each year.
