Target demographics: injured service members and their families/caregivers

Geographic areas served: Washington, D.C. and Montgomery County, Maryland

Programs: hotels, taxis, rental cars, airline tickets - immediate needs of families and caregivers who come to Walter Reed Military Medical Center or Ft. Belvoir to receive medical care. We are especially committed to helping caregivers cope with the stress associated with caring for loved ones through surgeries and rehabilitative care. Family presence makes such a positive difference for the recovering service member, and Yellow Ribbon Fund fills the gaps not covered by the military. We have ambassadors in 36 states to assist our American heroes as they transition from medical facilities to home, following up with service personnel and families to connect them with local community service and opportunities. We are committed to supporting those who have given so much to us already - military families with injured service members.

Mission:
"Welcoming Our Injured Service Members Home" Assist injured service members and their families during rehabilitation at Walter Reed or Bethesda Naval Hospital. Provide free hotel rooms, apartments and rental cars to visiting families; provide free cab vouchers for the injured; sponsor social events, barbecues, golf outings, hunting and fishing trips, free tickets to sporting events and cultural events. Additional focus on Family Caregivers, the mothers and wives of the injured by offering therapeutic massages, trips to day spas and salons, nights out for dinner and movie.
