Joseph and Diane Sampson host Wounded Warrior Homes speakers at Del Mar Rotary

Diane and Joseph Sampson, owners of Sampson California Realty and longtime members of Del Mar Rotary, recently hosted Mia Roseberry, executive director of Wounded Warriors Homes, and a returning war veteran at the Del Mar Rotary.   Wounded Warrior Homes is a not-for profit organization that helps returning veterans with traumatic brain injuries and post-traumatic stress find suitable housing during the recovery phase after returning from the war zone.

“One of the greatest needs for our returning service men and women is transitional housing,” said Chip Dykes, Chief Warrant Officer 3 USMC-RET.  “Our vets get to a point when they are finished with in-patient rehab, but they are not ready to live independently.  Wounded Warrior Homes fills that need,” he stated.

Wounded Warrior Homes’ mission is to provide affordable housing, hands-on resources, and a defined path for soldiers to transition from active-duty military service to independent living. “With more than 40,000 soldiers returning from the battlefield with traumatic brain injuries, many of these service men and women are suffering from anger issues, alcoholism and even suicide. Wounded Warrior Homes provides them with housing and the resources to help them acclimate back into society slowly and with plenty of support,” said Diane Sampson.

Joseph Sampson, a former Marine, and Diane Sampson, mom to a ROTC son, both hold a special place in their hearts for the United States Armed Forces’ soldiers.  Diane Sampson is also on the Board of Directors for Wounded Warrior Homes, and they both support local events to help returning war veterans.
