VISIONS & VALUES
In our history of working with at-risk active and veteran service members, we’ve learned the true power of family, purpose, and mission. The camaraderie that comes from being on a team/mission are essential in the overall well being and mental health of the soldier. MPO leads with this as our mantra.
We exist to assist the United States active and veteran community with a special emphasis on our combat injured troops. We grew out of our founder’s intense vision to stem the tide of military veteran suicide. The rate of 22 lives per day is a devastating reality. It’s our passion to reduce this through our outreach and aid to them. The victims of suicide (those who’ve attempted or those who’ve been affected by it) are critical to our mission.
Tee Shirts 4 Troops is our brand which has gained huge acceptance by the hospitalized military community. Multiple monthly visits over an 8 year period has exposed us to thousands of combat injured troops who need clothing while having lengthy stays in the hospital. Tee Shirts 4 Troops provides our troops with super hero themed clothing to boost morale and show appreciation by showing them they are America’s true super heroes. Mission: Plus One, or MPO is the outgrowth of that vision to provide the next step in recovery.
MPO believes to heal you need hope. Rebuilding broken dreams is the mission. Programs don’t heal people, people heal people.
THE WARRIOR House
Situated on 1 acre, this 2-home property sits surrounded by Oak and Palm trees. The Lanai is treated with the feel of a botanical garden–allowing the guests drop their burdens and let their cares drift away. The heated pool, sauna and sitting areas bring you to a place of comfort and contemplation. The classic hedges with the natural walk through arch convey the feeling of an old European garden. The Warrior House welcomes you with its earthy hues and beautiful leather furniture. It all comes together to provide a healthy, wholesome place for our residents and their families.
People who have nothing to live for often stop living. We’re determined to make an impact in the lives of those at risk. Our motto is to “Never stop dreaming”. We show our cherished guests that it is possible to dream once again.
The Warrior House is premium resources that accommodate individuals couples and families. Located on the west side of Sanford Florida, it positions out guests with close access to America’s best theme parks and shopping experiences.
The team at MPO has met over 13k combat injured vets. Our list soldiers we look forward to visiting is lengthy and continues to grow.
Having psychological and physical damage from warfare and service to our Country often leaves the troops with the misguided belief his/her best years are now behind them. MPO believes that a healthy mindset begins at home. We ensure the atmosphere of the Warrior House to be nothing short of first class as our team is committed to the Disney principle of excellence in all things.

PREMIUM RESOURCES INCLUDED
The Warrior House provides a place for our combat injured vets and their families to further the process of healing and recovery. Rebuilding a broken life takes a community of support and time. MPO provides a place where healing can be encouraged through some of our programs listed below.
We offer one on one relationships with business leaders who’ve established a name for themselves and are now willing to assist in the development of veteran fledgling companies. The doors of the Warrior House are full of incredible entrepreneurs and business leaders coming and going. Each one brings to the table the excellence they’ve built in their companies, families and community by teaching, training and mentoring.
It’s the off-the-clock time that is often the most effective for our troops. The campfire moments, the trip to Disney, the mission itself continues for our troops through this process which we call “accidental magic”. We take the troops to the people, places and events exposing them to things outside their current bandwidth, leading them on the mental journey of discovery which produces incredible healing. Our experience has taught us to never discredit the power of the journey.
Ideas exchange happens quarterly where several veterans engage in dialog and discussion with each other and business leaders. This event has proven very successful for our vets by producing a sense of unity and comradery on their journey, as well as giving them a platform for feedback on their ideas.
THE TABLE OF TRUTH
Several veterans with similar situations join a round table discussion. Here they are shown their true value and aided on how to accomplish major life changes and modifications. True camaraderie is formed and each group member supports one another and holds each other accountable. This is where placing the ‘mission’ before the ‘man’ assists.
Music has played a vital role throughout the journeys at The Warrior House. MPO has given away hundreds of guitars, basses, ukuleles, drums, as well as musical lessons to the troops. We have found music/arts therapy to be a healthy outlet for the troops suffering from PTSD. Along with our division ‘Expert Exposure’ we pair them with musicians who give the lessons needed for the troops to get the most out of their therapeutic experience.

From legal counsel, professional branding and logo design, mission and vision experts, execution of their first live/on line events, we bring experts to the table.
The Warrior house is a mirror house behind the great house. It’s a 1000 square foot facility which can house 4 to 6 guests. It’s 26 years old and in need of a facelift. We’re asking you to see what you could bring to the table to assist the project. There is space for a kitchen, but nothing is in there at this time.

My dad committed suicide when I was 6; I found him. Since I’ve joined the Army, I’ve done 8 tours now between Afghanistan and Iraq. My life was jacked. MPO put me up in the Warrior House and helped me get back on track. My family is reunited and I’ve now been working with an organization that helps other at-risk vets.Brian
MPO brings hope to our wounded. I’ve hosted them many times at Walter Reed. My PTSD was significantly hindering my life. They helped my rebuild my broken dreams, house me, and make me part of their family and team. You can’t heal without hope—they bring hope.A Wounded Warrior
