The Texas Sentinels Foundation was created to give back to the men and women of our Armed Services who have served our country. Through their personal sacrifice and heroic dedication, we enjoy the freedoms and security of this great nation. This foundation is an opportunity for all citizens to help create a better life for wounded warriors and their families, to say ‘Thank You.’ The Texas Sentinels Foundation provides qualified post 9/11 wounded warriors and their families with new 100% debt-free, mortgage-free, ADA compliant, fully furnished homes in Texas.

We also provide as part of a life scholarship job placement and ongoing mentorship, enabling returning veterans to realize their families’ dreams. Never before in this nation has a comprehensive scholarship of this kind been offered to the members of our Armed Forces who return to us severely wounded or injured. Ninety-seven cents of every donor dollar goes directly to our TSF wounded warriors. The Texas Sentinels Foundation is an all-volunteer organization supported by generous American patriots (listed below).
