We are an all volunteer, faith-based, interdenominational ministry located in Fredericksburg, Texas. We are not affiliated with the Wounded Warrior Project or other wounded warrior organizations. However, at times we interface with others such as Olympic Outdoor Center (San Marcos), DOD Adaptive Sports Military Program (Fort Sam Houston), Lazy U Ranch aka SS American Memorial (Seguin) to meet specific needs. We are a 501(C)(3) organization totally supported by donations of which 100% goes directly back into the ministry.

It finally came together! Wounded Warriors at Nebo has been working to have a care provider weekend for almost a year. This is a new program we are testing to see if it is something that is needed and helpful to care providers. This weekend was the ‘Proto-Type”. It could be called Pampering and Relaxing.
