Reviews for Hope For The Warriors

Rating: 5 stars  

My husband, Paul, and I have volunteered with Hope For The Warriors for years due to their commitment to wounded service members of all branches and their families. Charity Navigator has rated them with their highest score, Four Stars, and they are listed on Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) #27800. Beta Sigma Phi, an international sorority dedicated to service, has granted a $5,000 annual endowment to Hope For The Warriors for the past three years. A local community, Pine Knoll Shores, has sponsored Kayak for the Warriors for eight years and raised $75,000 in 2015 for Hope For The Warriors. This shows that individuals believe in what this non-profit provides for our wounded, their families, and the families of the fallen.

My husband, Paul, and I have volunteered with Hope For The Warriors since 2008 and race with Team Hope For The Warriors. The organization has grown into a highly acclaimed national organization serving our wounded and their families and families of the fallen from all of the services. One of the main reasons we started raising money for Hope For The Warriors was the fact that their overhead is very low and they have received a four start rating by Charity Navigator which allows more of the contributions to go to the warriors. The staff is young and they really care about what they are doing. It is an honor to work with this dedicated group of men and women who make up
Hope For The Warriors.

My husband and I have volunteered with this organization since 2008 and we see first hand how the money is used for spouse scholarships, hope and morale, warrior wishes, family support, etc. As a member of Beta Sigma Phi, an international sorority, the chapters in North and South Carolina took on Hope For The Warriors as a state service project. We believe in what they do and the Carolina's are considered two of the most military friendly states in the nation. We chose Hope For The Warriors as their administrative costs are very low and for the awe- inspiring courage of these service members and their families. My chapter nominated Hope For The Warriors for the Beta Sigma Phi Endowment Fund. Chapters world-wide voted to accept this non-profit organization and it received a $15,000 grant. So far, Beta Sigma Phi's have donated over $25,920 to this organization. Hope For The Warriors started in Jacksonville, NC, at Camp Lejeune just 45 minutes from where I live. It now has offices in New York, Washington, DC, Virginia, and Florida with representatives covering California, Texas, Illinois, and Wyoming, enabling them to maintain a nation-wide presence. The leadership of the organization still remains in the dedicated hands of military wives. Hope For The Warriors Advisory Board includes former Marine Corps Commandant, General Krulak, and the President and CEO of HBO, Bill Nelson.

Hope for the warriors is an amazing organization. From the first day I met them at another event they been like a family to me. I am an OEF/OIF veteran suffering from physical and non visible wounds and they have helped me a lot. They are always there to talk to regardless of the time of day even if its a hey I just wanted to say hi to just a ear to vent. They also got me out of my house and back into running and being active again. Before I met them or became a part of the team I rarely was physically active esp. with running. They helped me through my first ever half marathon and never thought I would be able to complete one with the injuries I had. They helped motivated me and pushed me through it. They also helped me get into my first ever biathlon. I would recommend this organization to any veteran who is struggling or needs some great resources. They defiantly live by their motto RESTORING SELF-FAMILY-HOPE.

I am very impressed with the level of commitment that Hope for the Warriors has towards military service members. I have donated money in the past, and felt great knowing that the funds went directly to purchase items for an event that gave back to some local military family members / caregivers. There is a genuine desire to help and support service members, veterans and their families. Definitely a worth-while cause.

Outstanding organization, staff, and programming. Always willing to go that extra mile to help out wounded warriors and veterans such as myself and my fellow marines. And always willing to collaborate with other like-minded organizations with similar missions.

I've had the great pleasure of being an alumni of the Hope For The Warrior organization. From my initial enrollment I was afforded treatment reserved for royalty. I'm an Operation Enduring Freedom Veteran and a service connected disabled Veteran and the folks at Hope For The Warrior are always fully attentive to the needs of my family and my recovery. I've been on several trips and events with this team and I can fully attest to their attention to detail and their efforts to make a difference in the lives of all the veterans in the program. Their synergistic approach to my recovery and reintegration has given me the opportunity to strengthen bonds with my family and community. I get weekly emails from all their respective departments to ensure I'm taking advantage of all their programs. Although I'm somewhat out of the state and hundreds of miles away Christian Nunez communicates with me practically every day to keep me abreast of new programs and opportunities. I enthusiastically recommend this organization to many returning Veterans without reservation.

I am a Post 9/11 Disabled Veteran and have taken part in many events sponsored by Hope for the Warriors (H4W) . H4W has been terrific and EXTREMELY SUPPORTIVE. I have a great interest in their Outdoor Program. H4W either sponsor and arrange numerous events throughout the year. All service members that take part have greatly benefited from H4W. I want to say THANK YOU to H4W and salute all who support this wonderful non profit organization.

Hope for the Warriors is a great organization! I've had the pleasure of raising funds for this organization and have participated in some of the group events both at the local and national level. The staff is great and extremely friendly. Their events are highly organized and the quality of people, veterans and family members I've met are highly superb. I highly recommend that people join, become active and support Hope 4 the Warriors!!! You won't regret it.

As the Asst. Director of Veteran Services and Faculty Adviser of our flourishing Student Veterans of America (SVA) chapter here at Pace University, it is with great pleasure and admiration to thank "Hope for the Warriors" for their unwavering dedication and commitment to our proud student veteran contingency. Throughout the years HFT has served as a tremendous resource and powerful advocate as veterans transition "from solider to student." The countless number of veteran-centric events and initiatives bringing veterans together in providing assistance and support across a multitude of domains here in the greater NY-Metro area has not gone unnoticed. Our veterans remain most grateful for their demonstrated altruism. We look forward to collaborating with and attending HFT's future events!
