Social distancing shouldn’t mean a social disconnect for our veterans and military families. Hope For The Warriors binds our community by connecting individuals through virtual services that provide wrap-around care. Now more than ever, we will stand with our warrior community as we navigate uncertainty.
These are the times when military families are more vulnerable:
…When a long-anticipated homecoming is put on indefinite hold as travel bans take effect.
…When a caregiver of a wounded veteran needs a reminder that self-care is important.
…When a military child with food insecurity doesn’t get the nutrition he or she needs when schools are closed.
HOPE stands with our military community every day, especially in times of crisis.
You can help these warriors stay connected for only $10. Donate here.
Nearly 10 years ago, Hope For The Warriors began its first virtual programming that has since evolved into a robust network of communities that encourage mental resiliency and physical and emotional well-being.
Resilient Warrior & Resilient Family: Resilient Warrior is designed to help a service member or veteran cope with stressful events, teaching one to control his or her mind and body’s responses to stress. The six-week course is free to warriors as well as the spouses and adult caregivers who provide support.
Caregiver HUB: This Facebook group is an ongoing source of resources and dialogue for the post-9/11 military caregiver community. Virtual wellness workshops address relevant topics and encourage self-care.
Physical Wellness and Training: Our Sports & Recreation Team uses virtual platforms such as Soflete, Strava and Virtual Runs to engage runners in good, healthy practices, train marathoners running in support of HOPE, as well as build physical and strength and resiliency.
Warrior’s Compass: When job expos and professional conferences are being cancelled across the country, HOPE has a powerful online platform for job seekers that provide access to mentors and resources that keep career-seeking veterans and military spouses actively engaged in professional development.
HOPE shines in providing individualized care that promotes the overall well-being of the person, the family and the military community. It starts with a virtual intake application for services on www.hopeforthewarriors.org, which is quickly followed by a phone call from a trained HOPE team member who assesses the individual’s needs.
“Last year, we provided over 12,000 services to the warrior community, and that number increases every year,” said Hope For The Warriors Chief Impact Officer Emma Walsh. “Our virtual programs were built to meet the warrior community where they are. Who knew a virus would make them even more essential as we continue our mission?”
Invest in the long-term impact of HOPE’s virtual programs and services, by pledging $10 a month and joining our Circle of Hope.
You’re not only giving back to our country’s warrior community but giving forward by investing in this generation of military families.
