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'....

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.

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!
