SPRINGFIELD, Va. (July 26, 2022) – Hope For The Warriors recently received a $100,000 community partnership grant from Wounded Warrior Project®. This is the second year Hope For The Warriors has received this grant which will support its critical needs program funding for one year.
Hope For The Warriors’ Critical Needs program assists service members, veterans and their families in two specific ways. Program coordinators provide integrated case management, financial education, with an emphasis on long-term financial stability, and resource referrals that assist the warrior both today and in the future. Then, if the warrior meets program eligibility criteria, financial support may be provided to assist the family in the short-term.
Twenty-eight veteran service organizations received a Wounded Warrior Project community partnership grant totaling over $5.9 million for programs focusing on:
- brain and mental health
- suicide prevention
- whole health and wellness
- financial wellness
- family resiliency and connection opportunities for warriors and their families
“Wounded Warrior Project understands the needs of wounded veterans, service members, caregivers, and military families are growing, and that no single organization can meet these challenges alone,” said WWP CEO Lt. Gen. (Ret.) Mike Linnington. “By working together with others, we can create a truly integrated and collaborative ecosystem of support, ensuring the military and veteran community is able to thrive long term.”
Celebrating over 15 years of service, Hope For The Warriors has served over 36,000 service members, veterans and military families through a comprehensive approach to well-being focusing on health and wellness, sports and recreation and transition.
“It’s always an honor to be recognized for the critical work being done at Hope For The Warriors, especially within our peer group of other veteran service organizations,” said Robin Kelleher, co-founder and president of the nonprofit organization. “Year-after-year, the need to supply critical funding for military families continues to grow and we always appreciate grants and donation opportunities that allow us to assist more families in need.”
