The WELCOME HOME INITIATIVE® programs are free to war-zone veterans and their spouses.

Attendees must provide their own transportation to the retreat venue; however, hotel accommodations and meals are provided.  If travel costs are a factor in attending, we suggest veterans find a sponsor to cover travel costs such as: their church, or clubs (i.e. Rotary, Lion’s, VFW post, etc.) or relatives.  If you can not find a resource please contact us.

God has provided ways for veterans to participate in the WHI services from as far away as Australia and the United Kingdom.


Please consider supporting the WELCOME HOME INITIATIVE® services. Your donation will help a veteran! Your donation supports the WHI retreats as well as private individual ministry to veterans provided throughout the year by Fr. Nigel and our team.

Each WHI retreat has an approximate cost of $10,000. This includes hotel accommodations for all, as well as meals and team travel expenses.

We are building a “scholarship” fund for veterans who need assistance for travel expenses to attend.
Suggested donation of $500.

WELCOME HOME INITIATIVE® services is a ministry of By His Wounds, Inc. a 501c3 non-profit organization.
