The financial assistance provided by Hope For The Warriors has substantially decreased the stress in trying to fund my education, which could have been a significant impediment in my academic success. Without assistance, I would be graduating with an enormous amount of debt. This would have required me to focus on how I would repay loans, rather than focusing on a meaningful career. I can’t emphasize enough how much the Hope For The Warriors team has influenced me and my continued success within the program. Knowing that I have others who believe in me has given me hope and strength, even when times are rough.
