No matter where you are, or what’s happening in our world, NMFA and Wounded Warrior Project has your back.
We’ll go #FurtherTogether because together we’re stronger.
About Wounded Warrior Project
Here’s how WWP can help:
Wounded Warrior Project serves warriors through programs that assist them with mental health, financial wellness, independence, and connecting them with supportive communities. We have invested more than $1.3 billion into programs and services provided free of charge to injured veterans, their families, and caregivers.
Our programs and services are based on five distinct organizational pillars:
- Mental health and wellness
- Career and Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) benefits counseling
- Physical health and wellness
- Personal independence of the most severely injured
- Social connection and engagement
WWP can assist with:
- Managing your Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) or Department of Defense (DoD) benefits claims
- Learning more about one-time emergency financial assistance
- Connecting with a Warriors to Work® teammate for job placement, resume writing, or interview skills
- Connecting warriors and family members to a WWP team member, through our WWP Talk program, for weekly emotional support phone calls to improve their mental health and well-being.
- Sometimes the most painful injuries aren’t physical. Whether it’s PTSD, TBI, combat stress, or any other mental health condition, the Combat Stress Recovery Program is here to help you get through it.
- Delivering clinical care with four world-renowned academic medical centers. Through Warrior Care Network, WWP provides more than 70 hours of individualized mental health care through a 2- to 3-week program. Through this program, warriors develop the skills to cope with and work through symptoms of post-traumatic stress.
- Focusing on physical health and wellness. WWP is here to help you discover what “better” means for you, through coaching, skill-building, and physical training.
- Helping warriors suffering from moderate-to-severe brain injury, spinal cord injury, or neurological conditions, take positive steps towards independent living. Through our Independence Program, we work as a team with each warrior, their family, and caregivers to set goals and build an individualized plan.
- Finding ways to get involved with WWP, the local community, and other warriors, family members, and caregivers
