FOTWF is by far the most effective support group I have experienced. It's volunteers, many of whom served, and still serve are dedicated to the families of our brave service members who have come home injured but not broken. They and their families just need a shoulder to lean on and thank goodness these volunteers have broad ones! Thank you for all you do ---FOTWF!

I have met several of the families receiving assistance and have been impressed with their stories on helping their loved ones who have been seriously injured in Iraq/Afghanistan. Thye sacrifice a great deal to help family members over the long road to recovery.The Fund was able to assist them in helping loved ones and relieve some of the financial burden imposed on them.There is no overhead and 100% of all funds raised go to the Families.

I have observed first hand the great amount of good the Families of The Wounded does for the families of wounded veterans.Assistance has been provided to alleviate financial hardship for family members who have relocated to help their loved ones recover.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The dedication of the Board members and the caring nature of every volunteer at every level.The fact that there are immediate needs met for families who have no where else to turn for help at a critical time of need.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

I have had the honor to see first hand how the Families of the Wounded Fund INC takes care of the immediate family members of our wounded service men and women. Family member's presence with their wounded loved ones undergoing treatment at McGuire VA Hospital is essential to the healing process. Many times these families need to spend weeks and months at McGuire away from their homes and jobs. They truly need the financial support that the Families of the Wounded Fund provides them. These funds enable them to pay for travel expenses such hotel rooms, meals, rental cars, etc. Items which are essential for them in remaing close to their wounded veteran while he or she goes through the healing and rehabilitation process so critical to their future.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

working with the families and seeing how much this charity helps them through a very emotional time in their life and the life of their wounded veteran.
