Who We Are

My Story/Our Story

Hello, I am Robert Heckler, the Executive Director of The Warrior’s Refuge, a project of Castle Cares Community Ministries. We are a 501c3 Nonprofit ministry serving our nation’s homeless veterans by providing them with transitional housing and many resources to help end homelessness in their lives. Through housing, case management, counseling, training, and employment resources our Veterans have the tools they need to succeed. Founded in 2019, we have gone from starting with 6 veterans and an old nursing home to serving over 50 veterans on any given day in a renovated facility. We just recently celebrated our fourth year serving veterans, and in this short time, we have seen the lord change the lives of hundreds of veterans. Veterans that have come here and been able to regroup, rebuild, and reintegrate into a happy thriving life and out of homelessness.  We couldn’t do anything we do without our veterans, our team, and our community partners. As a family, we are taking the fight against veteran homelessness and winning.

Yours in Christ,

Robert Heckler, M.S., MCM

Executive Director

Our Mission

Our mission is to end Veteran Homelessness in Texas and ultimately throughout America. We believe that since our veterans fought for us, it is our turn to fight for them. We do this by providing shelter, transitional living, case management, counseling, and vocational training, along with job placement. We have brought people in from all over the state of Texas and from several other states. Our goal is to help the men and women who fought for us, have a place to push the restart button on life

Our Vision

Our goal for the future is to continue to engage intentionally and proactively, in the battle against veteran homelessness. To help heal veterans through continuous growth and expansion of effective, quality programs and services, that will lead to the end of Veteran homelessness.
