Hope for the Warriors believes that those who have been engaged in or touched by military service can succeed at home by restoring their sense of self, family, and hope. Nationally, the organization provides comprehensive support programs for service members, veterans, and military families focused on transition, health and wellness, peer engagement, and connections to community resources.
Lengthy hospital stays, inpatient treatment, delays in disability claims processing, loss of income, and unexpected expenses create financial burdens for families. Originally designed to meet short-term needs in the days following an injury, the Hope for the Warriors' Critical Care Coordination program has expanded to assist post-9/11 combat-wounded and their families as they navigate the long-term recovery process.
Program case coordinators work daily with post-9/11 combat-wounded service members and veterans, their families, and families of the fallen to meet immediate financial needs. The program assists service members, veterans, and their families by providing casework assistance and resource referrals that assist the client both today and in the future. If the client meets the criteria — directly related to a post-9/11 combat injury — financial support may be given to assist the family in the short term.
To be eligible, applicants must be seeking support for needs that are a direct result of a service member's post-9/11 combat-related injury.
