Why we do what we do.

Our work at the Wounded Warrior Restoration Center will offer hope, traction, a sense of belonging. Join us by donating or contact us to help with the fund-raising and programming efforts.

The mailbags aren't full yet, but we are encouraged when we hear from each of you. Thanks so much for this heartfelt letter. It keeps us moving forward in pursuit of our vision to save lives and facilitate healing for our wounded military and their families.

Hello Devorah and Kalvin,

Just now I discovered your website and have been gratified to read about your fund-raising efforts to create a healing retreat for Wounded Warriors. Your stories are very touching and inspirational; I write to congratulate you on your vision and wish you success in this sacred project. I regret that I am not in a position to help you financially; all I can send you at this point are prayers and hope.

As we know all too well, there are many wounded warriors among us. I am married to one. Stephen returned from Vietnam with a severed thumb, Purple Heart and a case of PTSD that was only diagnosed a couple years ago. We are fortunate that he received good counsel which enabled him to jump through the VA hurdles, obtaining a 100% disability rating. Many others are not so lucky.

The VA hospitals provide much needed medical care, but seem to have little to offer in the way of treatment for PTSD, which is why centers like the one you are trying to put in place are so needed and important.

When – not if – your retreat center is built, we would love to come and see it. Although we live in Minnesota, we have family in Colorado and visit as frequently as possible.

If you have an e-mail or snail mail list, I would appreciate it if you would please put us on it and keep us informed of your progress.

Wishing you success in your mission and sending gratitude for all that you’re doing.

 

Many people have heard of the children’s book series, “A Series of Unfortunate Events.” What we expect here at Wounded Warriors – Sons & Daughters of America are a series of inspired and amazing miracles. Our mission demands this.

It’s not just the fundraising or program development. It’s definitely not just the renovations or staff development. Yes, all of these are miracles. What we keep in mind as our driving force is that we expect a series of miracles when the Wounded Warriors Restoration Center is open. These miracles will take place in the lives of wounded combat veterans and their families. We challenge you to remember that everything that you give whether it be your prayers, time, or money make you a part of these miracles.

This is a challenge because completing a vision takes risk. It takes braving the HUGE possibility of failure. It takes the ability to see the many opportunities along the way.

Many of the wounded combat veterans that we meet want to believe that the Wounded Warriors Restoration Center will become a reality. We join them in this belief.

This hope that we have in our vision takes faith. Faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen. We see our work rescuing lives. We see our work restoring families. We see our work helping wounded servicemen and women understand their importance to society and to their families. We see our work restoring a sense of destiny and purpose to lives broken by the effects of combat.

Fulfilling this vision takes momentum. It will occur by many people becoming involved in every step of the way. Our mission now is to build the Restoration Center and raise the funds to be debt free as we purchase the land and make renovations. You can be a part of that miracle. Please pray and please consider donating to the cause.
