Juan H. is in the Navy has served in the Navy for 13 years. He has been on 12 deployments and is currently deployed at sea, leaving behind his wife and three children. Due to unforeseen expenses, the family has been struggling to make ends meet as they are currently a one-income household. Juan’s wife, Maressa, is currently in school and cares for her three young children, one of which is autistic with ADHD.
The family was able to secure the necessary funding to cover their mortgage, and Wish for Our Heroes provided them with a $500 gift card to Wal-Mart to help cover day-to-day expenses. In addition, we were able to connect the family with the Mandarin Food Bank which provided backpacks full of school supplies and a new outfit for each child.
Thanks to donors like you, we are able to continue our mission of helping military members and their families during times of need.
