Non-profits have a special responsibility. They often are built by people with huge hearts. People who care enough to build a network of resources for those without, through very hard work and endless commitment. Wounded Warrior Homes in Vista California is a shining example of a non-profit at work.

Wounded Warrior Homes is a grassroots charitable non-profit chartered to provide transitional housing to single post-9/11 combat veterans with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and Post-Traumatic Stress (PTS). They are citizens, like you, who deeply care about our nation and appreciate the sacrifices of those who have served in armed conflict to protect our country, our nation’s interests, our people and those in other nations.

I've been working with them over the past few weeks with the goal of building a set of custom stock photography they can use on the website, in collateral, on social media and in email marketing. Below are a few shots form a recent volunteer day at one of the homes under development.
