Wounded Warriors Family Support

MISSION

Our mission is to provide support to the families of those who have been wounded, injured or killed during combat operations. The families of our casualties suffer in many ways: some financially, some psychologically. 

WHERE YOUR SUPPORT GOES

  • Our Caregiver Respite Program provides support and assistance to caregivers of wounded veterans. Often, caregivers are spouses or family members who have many other responsibilities, such as work, managing bills and taking care of children. Our respite services provide aid and temporary relief to caregivers as well as assistance in enrolling in the Department of Veterans Affairs Caregiver Support Services and other agencies offering resources and support.
     
  • Our Family Retreats provide wounded warriors and their families a peaceful place to heal and reconnect with their loved ones. The retreats allow wounded veterans and their families an escape from the stress they face every day for an opportunity to become stronger as individuals and families.
     
  • We also work together with a number of charity partners to serve wounded veterans and their families, including Air Compassion for the Veterans, Armed Forces Foundation, Fisher House, the Gary Sinise Foundation, Hope for the Warriors, Operation Sanctuary, Quantum Leap Farms, Take Flight Farms, USAcares.org, and Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, among others.
