A nonprofit in California has broken ground on an accessory dwelling unit that will house veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injury.
Wounded Warrior Homes broke ground on its fourth residence on Dec. 5 in San Diego/North County.
The excavation work for the foundation will be done by volunteers from Navy Seabee unit CBMU-303. Almost all other labor will be done by volunteers. The ADU itself is being donated by Warrior Village Project in conjunction with San Marcos High School.
“We are honored to receive the first cottage built by the students at San Marcos High School and the Warrior Village Project,” said Wounded Warrior Homes Executive Director Mia Rosenberry.
The addition brings the total number of veterans housed through Wounded Warrior Homes up to 14 veterans at a time.
