Proud Partners Since 2007

The National Military Family Association and Wounded Warrior Project® have been proud partners in strengthening, supporting, and empowering military and veteran families since 2007. Together, our enduring partnership fills gaps to give America’s service members and their families access to resources, programs, and connection that inspire them to live their best life during their military service, or through military-connected injuries and the recovery that follows.

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

Wounded Warrior Project is transforming the way America’s injured veterans are empowered, employed, and engaged in our communities. Since 2003, we’ve been tireless advocates for our nation’s finest, improving the lives of millions of warriors and their families. Warriors never pay a penny for our programs – because they paid their dues on the battlefield. Our free services in mental health, career counseling, and long-term rehabilitative care change lives. We’re committed to helping injured veterans achieve their highest ambitions. When they’re ready to start their next mission, we stand ready to serve.
Wounded Warriors

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

Operation Purple Camp

Eastern 4-H Center is owned and operated by NC State University. The Center's staff is dedicated to providing every camper an opportunity to feel accepted, valued, and cared about as a member of the summer camp community. Creating friendships and a sense of safety are as important to us as the activities we teach. Our vision is to establish an enjoyable and exciting summer camp program that contributes to the development of each camper's character, along with the development of important life skills. Our summer camp experience enables campers to learn these skills while doing a variety of traditional summer camp activities, such as kayaking, canoeing, rock climbing, learning about nature, team challenge course, sports and games, arts and crafts, and archery. Eastern 4-H Center is also outfitted with modern recreational facilities and lodgings to make campers feel comfortable during their stay. We hope your camper will join us for a fun filled week.
