Wounded Warrior Project

WWP has helped our family in many ways. We did a weekend trip to Denver to connect with other veterans. My husband was struggling with having to use a cane, and he ended up connecting with someone who has become a good friend.

Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) is ready to assist family members and caregivers adjusting to life with a wounded veteran for their lifetime. The WWP Independence Program is designed for warriors who rely on their families or caregivers as a result of moderate-to-severe brain injury, spinal-cord injury, or other neurological conditions. The Independence Program is a team effort, bringing together the warrior, family or caregiver, treatment team, and community support professionals to establish goals and a personalized plan. The result is a comprehensive, long-term partnership that adapts to the ever-changing needs of the warrior. The Long-Term Support Trust is an additional safety net designed to ensure the most seriously wounded veterans are empowered to live independently with the highest quality of life and finest care possible when their caregiver can no longer provide the assistance they need. In some cases, warriors face the risk of institutionalization and we can’t let that happen.
