September 11, 2001. A day that forever changed the course of our nation and history.​
It was also on September 11, but in 2006, that Hope For The Warriors (HOPE) was founded by a group of military spouses aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune. They saw their spouses return with injuries and others in flag-draped caskets. They witnessed friends and families deal with the brutal reality of war and loss. They knew what their community needed most … HOPE. ​
For 16 years, Hope For The Warriors has been helping service members, caregivers, military families, and families of the fallen find their HOPE — over 100,000 individuals to date. Support has looked different for each individual, and the needs have been ever-changing.
HOPE is unafraid to go back to the drawing board to determine the best solution for every individual, family, and community. This is how HOPE innovates, and this is our mission — be who the military community needs today.
We learn from history and the past, keep one eye on the future but live and serve in the present. ​
For 60 days, from September 11, Patriot Day, to November 11, Veterans Day, two prominent days for our community, we invite you to come along a journey with us to discover ‘what is HOPE?
