Escondido, CA -March 2023 – – Local nonprofit Wounded Warrior Homes (WWH) has opened their first house for female veterans in North County San Diego as a pilot program. WWH has been serving male veterans with transitional housing for eleven years in San Diego County; now they have begun a pilot program to also serve women veterans with post-traumatic stress (PTS) and traumatic brain injury. Currently, they have one female veteran already moved in and are looking to house an additional two to three women veterans as soon as needed repairs are completed.

The nonprofit is seeking the community’s support to help them fully open the house by making needed repairs. Specific requests include a need for fence repair, irrigation repair, landscaping, and interior painting.

WWH veterans can stay up to two years in the home on an as-needed basis while they receive support like counseling and rehabilitative services. The mission of Wounded Warrior Homes is to provide transitional housing, hands-on resources and services, and a defined path for each member to transition to independent living. The nonprofit’s primary program provides affordable transitional housing as well as access to a wide variety of community-based programs such as recreation, job education, and placement, transportation, medical and dental services, veteran benefit specialists, and financial counseling. On-site services include case management, occupational therapy, behavioral therapy, and connecting veterans to the Wounded Warrior Homes food pantry.

Mia Roseberry, Executive Director of Wounded Warrior Homes, shared, “Women veterans have done so much to serve our country, we are eager to expand to serve them with transitional housing when they need support. This pilot program is a tremendous opportunity and we hope that with the support of the community, we will be able to fully open this home and welcome additional women to the program.”
