Help Claudia save her home.

Claudia, a mother of two from Tucson, Arizona, is a medically retired US Army Vet. In 2003 her unit was deployed to Iraq; where she was involved in a head-on collision on a fuel convoy. As a result, Claudia repeatedly loses her entire memory every 48-72 hours. VA diagnosed her with severe Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). Claudia is unemployable; no one will hire a veteran with memory limitations. At the moment, she is struggling to pay her mortgage and needs our support. Claudia served her country – Let’s help her now.

ShotOut to Furnishing Hope.

At WHOA, we realized long ago the importance of working with others to accomplish our common goals.
One of the best examples of collaboration is our relationship with Beth Phillips and Furnishing Hope. This unbelievable foundation provides furniture to combat wounded veterans. It’s impressive that in only a few hours, they can dramatically change the lives of veterans and their families. Special thanks to Beth, Furnishing Hope, and all the great volunteers who bring joy to our heroes.

The Children

From the start, we recognized that the recovery of those who have gone to war depends in large part on the people they have around them when they get back—most notably their spouses, their parents, and their kids. It’s also clear that those who have strong family support do much better in recovery than those…

Let the Good Times Roll

At Wounded Heroes of America, we insist on enjoying ourselves. Life is meant to be lived, after all, and how we spend our allocated time on Earth is up to us. Many of the men and women we serve have seen enough horrible things to last a lifetime, so whenever we get an opportunity to…

A Day at the Ranch

Before the day at the ranch, we looked at the weather report every day, and every day the forecast improved. When February 13 arrived, the weather could not have been better; it was a gorgeous day to be outside. El Niño was nowhere to be found. It was our second annual trip to Horse of…
