The representatives always went out of their way to ensure that I was taken care of. This made me feel like I mattered to the organization, and that I didn't serve in vain.

Hope provides needed service to our heroes. I have been a donor for a few years now and feel confident that my donation is used to make a difference in the lives of our veterans and military families.

Hope for the Warriors made our dream of owning a home a reality. We were unable to find funds to pay our closing costs when our home was finished 4 months ahead of schedule. Although they generally aren't able to provide this type of assistance, Jory found a way to make it happen. We don't have enough praise to heap on this organization. They came through when all others refused to help us.

Hope for the Warriors offers great support for Caregivers and our nation's veterans. From free counseling to online peer support, Blog talk Radio, face to face meetings in some locations, to granting Hero Wishes....these guys are a first class act.

With the transition from active duty to retiree there are tons of the things the military doesn't prepare you for, the biggest thing is going 90 days with a paycheck or VA benefits check. Hope for the Warriors is there for the family & veterans to help with major bills, emotional support through caregiver support groups and amazing programs like the Wish program. We have had to rely on HFTW several times. Without their compassion and assistance I'm not sure where we would be.

I don't know where I would be without the Caregiver support group through Hope for the Warriors. It is important to connect, uplift, and encourage each other as we're the ones who are taking care of our Nation's greatest heroes. Hope for the Warriors encourages me to be a better caregiver for my veteran. I am forever in debt to them!

Hope for the Warriors is an organization that gets the big picture and has the ability to be proactive in their approach and programming. As a wounded warrior caregiver, I've come to know just how many organizations out there are just providing lip service to the cause, the charge of "hidden heroes", a term that I don't necessarily like but one I get. We as caregivers are not hidden: we are in plain sight in need of support, empowerment and understanding. HFTW gets that with its innovative Caregiver Wellness Workshops which use distinctive approaches to wellness and health. I'm blessed to be a part of this initiative and so happy and proud of the work that I do.

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.

My husband, Paul, and I have volunteered with Hope For The Warriors for years due to their commitment to wounded service members of all branches and their families. Charity Navigator has rated them with their highest score, Four Stars, and they are listed on Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) #27800. Beta Sigma Phi, an international sorority dedicated to service, has granted a $5,000 annual endowment to Hope For The Warriors for the past three years. A local community, Pine Knoll Shores, has sponsored Kayak for the Warriors for eight years and raised $75,000 in 2015 for Hope For The Warriors. This shows that individuals believe in what this non-profit provides for our wounded, their families, and the families of the fallen.

My husband, Paul, and I have volunteered with Hope For The Warriors since 2008 and race with Team Hope For The Warriors. The organization has grown into a highly acclaimed national organization serving our wounded and their families and families of the fallen from all of the services. One of the main reasons we started raising money for Hope For The Warriors was the fact that their overhead is very low and they have received a four start rating by Charity Navigator which allows more of the contributions to go to the warriors. The staff is young and they really care about what they are doing. It is an honor to work with this dedicated group of men and women who make up
Hope For The Warriors.

My husband and I have volunteered with this organization since 2008 and we see first hand how the money is used for spouse scholarships, hope and morale, warrior wishes, family support, etc. As a member of Beta Sigma Phi, an international sorority, the chapters in North and South Carolina took on Hope For The Warriors as a state service project. We believe in what they do and the Carolina's are considered two of the most military friendly states in the nation. We chose Hope For The Warriors as their administrative costs are very low and for the awe- inspiring courage of these service members and their families. My chapter nominated Hope For The Warriors for the Beta Sigma Phi Endowment Fund. Chapters world-wide voted to accept this non-profit organization and it received a $15,000 grant. So far, Beta Sigma Phi's have donated over $25,920 to this organization. Hope For The Warriors started in Jacksonville, NC, at Camp Lejeune just 45 minutes from where I live. It now has offices in New York, Washington, DC, Virginia, and Florida with representatives covering California, Texas, Illinois, and Wyoming, enabling them to maintain a nation-wide presence. The leadership of the organization still remains in the dedicated hands of military wives. Hope For The Warriors Advisory Board includes former Marine Corps Commandant, General Krulak, and the President and CEO of HBO, Bill Nelson.
