Bob Mabry’s misfortune of being homeless is no more now that he lives in a home run by Wounded Warriors of Collier County.

“I never expected something like this,” Mabry, 71, said. “It’s wonderful.”

He is one of two veterans who moved in April 1 to a home at 1200 Granada Blvd. in Naples, which Wounded Warriors operates to provide long-term supportive housing for senior veterans who previously were homeless. A third veteran is lined up to move into the three-bedroom, two bath residence.
