On Friday, December 7, 2012, Camp Lejeune officially opened their brand new, state-of-the-art, Warrior Hope and Care Center.
The concept for the Hope and Care Center was conceived by HOPE leadership after attending the ribbon cutting for the Center for the Intrepid (CFI) in San Antonio, TX. CFI provides rehabilitation for wounded service members with the goal to return service members to the highest levels of physical, psychological, and emotional function.
At the time, some wounded service members were returning from combat and were receiving medical care aboard Camp Lejeune but after their doctor appointments, they were returning alone to an empty barrack’s room. Those in San Antonio were receiving top rehabilitative care at the CFI, but that was not the case everywhere. The Warrior Hope & Care Center was conceived with the goal of filling that gap in service needs at Camp Lejeune.
Since then, we’ve doubled the impact of our Warrior Hope & Care Center with the addition of a second center at Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton in California.
