The commitment and dedication in helping support veterans in dire need that Hope for the Warriors has is unparalleled. There are many organizations where I was just a number but to the folks here I and my family were people and they treaded us with dignity and support. They made us feel a part of their family, I will forever be grateful.
Hope for the Warriors has been a blessing to our family. Thank you for all your help and support as we navigated the often confusing aspects of getting the help that was needed. Without Hope for the Warriors I am not sure where we would be right now.
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.

Thank you again for making our Christmas one we will never forget.
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!
