Thanks to Hope For The Warriors and their A Warrior's Wish program I received a camping trailer. This trailer is going to change my family’s lives. This trailer means that we don’t have to sit around all summer dreaming of going camping and weighing the pros and cons of camping in a tent. Being an amputee, it’s sometimes difficult to see the outdoors as an option for any period of time. It’s really important to keep my residual limb clean and a trailer is really the best option to do that.

I am forever grateful for the help Hope for the Warriors provided me. It's always hard to acknowledge you need to help yourself or seek help. I always feel understood and appreciated and never alone, or just a number. They go out of their way to help whether it be resources, counseling and more. Especially when someone follows through on what they say means a lot when you've been let down so many times by someone else saying the same. I will reccomend Hope for the Warriors to any Veteran.

I applied for many different non profit's during our struggle and hope for the warriors was the first to come through and the most caring of them all. I was so touched by the way they talked to me and handled the situation. Thank you hope for the warriors for all your help!

Amazing. So personal, helpful and quick. Thank you to Gina for all the help I was able to receive. And to Hope for the Warriors for caring for our Veterans and families. I was able to afford the gas and hotel to pick my husband up from the VA hospital on the other side of the state. All other agencies had failed us, and we weren't sure how he was going to get home (after a 2 month stay). Hope for the Warriors stepped up and covered everything with just days left until his discharge. Thanks, Hope for the Warriors!

Hope for the Warriors has been such a blessing to me. The Facebook group for caregivers has become an oasis where I can reach out to other caregivers and be encouraged and understood. This spring, I am proud to be a Hope for the Warriors scholarship recipient. I look forward to continuing to work on my degree to further my education and be able to help other caregivers along the way.
Veteran and Military families can be seen as being "different" in society- being a disabled veteran family makes that evident even more so. I am so fortunate to have found Hope for the Warriors and be a part of a networked community where I know I belong.

I'm an Iraq War Veteran, 70% service connected for my injuries. I connected with Hope for the Warriors when I was in dire need of funds to pay one month's rent because my injuries would not allow me to work. I was desperate and thought there was no hope and that I would be evicted. Hope for the Warriors to the rescue! These guys assessed my situation and the intake was very straight forward. Within a couple weeks I received a check mailed to the property manager and I was saved! The next month I was able to get back on my feet and everything turned out ok, thanks to the helping hand from these amazing people. Thank you all so much!
