Board of Directors

WHC is fortunate to have a Board of Directors that not only attend monthly meetings, but are also active participants in helping to operate and manage our local non-profit organization.
Today, we have a diverse board with a wide range of business skills and experience. This team has made major accomplishments in assisting with the needs of Veterans and their families in our community.
While WHC was founded twelve years ago , it wasn’t until eight years ago that we incorporated into a non-profit 501 (c) 3 Veterans organization. Three of the original five board members are still with us; Dale, MarieElena, and Anthony has been with our team for the last ten years.
Our board worked to rewrite our vision and mission statement four years ago, which helped move us from a single-focused charity with annual revenues of approximately $200,000 a year to last year raising more than $1 million for Veterans and their families in the areas of housing, mental health and education.

In the last 3 ½ years , our Warrior Homes program is now operating four housing sites, the Alpha, Bravo, Charlie, and Delta houses. This is our 13th year and last year we raised $1.7 million

We are committed to ensure that no Veteran is left behind in Collier County.
