Being knowledgeable of the NLMSF and its mission and purpose, I find this Foundation to be very proactive, responsive to the needs of patients,families,caregivers all over the world. Their three websites, the programs they offer, the upcoming live / free SUPPORT HELPLINE - starting Sept. 1 - all point to the direction of effective advocacy to help those needed help after being diagnosed with LMS, navigating treatment, and after treatment - survivorship. A truly worthy Foundation to be recognized!

I have witnessed first hand the work Hope For The Warriors does and was compelled to make a donation to support their programs. The support they offer not only to veterans but their families is much needed and appreciated by those they serve. Hope provided services to a family friends son and his family upon his final return from Afghanistan wounded and in a terrible depression, without them I don't know where this family would currently be. Thankfully for their efforts they are adjusting and living through it with a positive outlook! God Bless them for all they do and continue to do to help our heroes and their families. Proud to support such a worthwhile organization.

Wow I don't even know where to begin. This organization has done some many amazing things for me. I have had a rocky transition since exiting the military. I needed help rebuilding my life while getting connected to other veterans thought theaputic recreational activities. Hope For The Warriors truly stands by their name. It's given me HOPE and the inspiration to help other veterans facing similar issues. I look for to giving back to them by participating in their sports and recreation challenges. I also want to give a special thanks to Brianne S. And Kevin S. You know who you guys are thank you for your hard work and service to our country's veterans.

It may seem like a small thing but Hope For The Warriors helped me get a riding lawnmower. This riding lawnmower means a great deal to my wife and I and will immensely impact my recovery from my injuries and assisting with transitioning to civilian life. I will offer service to my church community and all the people who need help with their lawn. It is like a blessing from God and a dream come true. I am very delighted to receive such an amazing gift. I would like to express my heartfelt sincere thanks and appreciations to the Hope For The Warrior’s and its A Warrior’s Wish program for making my wish a reality.

I fell on hard times due to my disability. Just when I thought there was no hope, in comes Joe from Hope For The Warriors. He was understating, caring, empathic and gave me a reason to hope again. I can't say enough good things about this organization. They live up to their name.

I participated in their program for grief counseling, and the woman I spoke with over the course of a few weeks was very helpful. She was an intern, but she gave great guidance, support and comfort. She was also good with following up with me. I would recommend this org to veterans in need.

We have an extremely difficult and ongoing case with my husband's injuries and have received very little to absolutely no help through the Army. Hope for the Warriors listened to me and gave me every possible resource they could to try and help me. They sent us a gift card at Christmas that made it so we could actually have a Christmas meal and get a couple of gifts. I will always be grateful for all their time devoted to helping my family.

Hope for the Warriors helped us in our time of need. They had excellent communication and coordinated ACTUAL real support for a warfighter family who fell through the cracks. It’s been about two years since we worked with HFW and the update is, We are on our feet!!!! We are GOOD!! We would have been homeless if not for Hope for the Warriors.

Hope for warriors provided counseling services for me at a time after a close death in the family and right after becoming a veteran. Thanks to the woman intern that counseled me for about 5 weeks, I was able to get through grieving the death of my family member and cope with the stresses of being a new veteran.

We were stuck in the limbo of leaving the military due to medical issues & the unable to mentally fight to get my husband's medical retirement. This caused us to go 6 months with no pay. Just when we had no where else to turn, an angel named Jess came to our rescue . When I called, she spent over an hour listening to our story and was truly compassionate and wanted to help us. She started making so many calls on our behalf that the VA was worried & made sure we were aware of her doing so. LOL She got us the help we needed the most and also help with many of our other bills. I cannot say enough about Jess, truly an amazing person, with a heart of gold. Hope for Warriors is lucky to have her. I hope everyone, who desperately needs help, is getting someone as caring as her when they call Hope for Warriors. I applied to a lot of places and this was the only one that came through for us in the end. if you are wanting to donate to a worthy cause that gets is funds to soldier's families THIS IS THE ONE TO DONATE TO!!! And if you are Jess's boss, you should give her a raise, just sayin'....
