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.
Wounded Warriors at Nebo has an Executive Board made up of members of various local churches.
People have asked where we got our name or what is Nebo so perhaps there are others with the same question. It took a while for us to find a name, but believe this one is appropriate based on the following. Nebo is the mountain GOD took Moses to when showing him the Promised Land where the Israelites would find hope and respite from their journey. Deuteronomy 34:1 “Then Moses went up from the plains of Moab to mount Nebo, to the top of Pisgah, which is opposite Jericho. And the LORD showed him all the land, Gilead as far as Dan.” (ESV) In addition, the country home where we first hosted the Warriors and their families was at one time the old Nebo school. It was a place where they could find respite from the hectic life on base and feel there is hope in their future.
