Nonprofit Overview

Mission: Project New Hope Inc provides free weekend retreats to Active duty, National Guard and Reserve soldiers and their families. Almost all of these heroes share one thing in common, returning home and adjusting to civilian life was, and is very challenging for both the Veteran and their families. Many of them return with injuries, both seen and unseen, which make the transition even more difficult. Some suffer from depression and turn to addiction or worse, suicide.

Results: Since starting in January 2011 we have provided free weekend retreats to include the first-ever weekend retreat in Massachusetts for Women & Male Veterans and Gold Star Families. In 2013 we will be hosting free weekend retreats in all 6 New England States.

Target demographics: Veterans and their families

Direct beneficiaries per year: Wounded Warriors, Active, National Guard,Reserve and veterans from all eras

Geographic areas served: New England

Programs: We are dedicated to helping all Veterans, and their families, with the transition from military life to civilian life with retreats for Women & Male Veterans, Married & Gold Star families. We have on hand VA, VET Center and private practice therapist to deal with Marital & family issues, PTSD, TBI, MST and other conditions related to military service.

I'm so glad that I found Project New Hope! Without attending their 1st and 2nd annual Caregiver Retreats, I wouldn't have met so many people who understood exactly what it's like to feel alone in a civilian world, where nobody in my life was able to "get it." I went to the 1st Caregiver Retreat in 2017 without knowing anybody there. However, I left with an amazing group of lifelong friends, who've been in my life ever since.

However, not everything was about meeting like-minded people. The Retreat offered both planned activities as well as free time. A chance to recharge for a while. Their guest speakers, volunteers, fishing excursion with Captain Shaun, and so on, are top notch professionals. People who all understand what it's like to feel like you're all alone as a loving Caregiver.

I'm a people person, so the socializing has been my #1 reason for attending their retreats

A few years ago I went to Bill/PNH to talk to him about the needs of military caregivers - those who care for our wounded military. Without any debate, Bill offered to host a retreat for military caregivers, and PNH has since continued to offer their support and services. Bill and the entire PNH team is beyond exceptional with everything that they do.

As I help Soldiers and veterans find their way back to financial stability I have often sent them to Project New Hope, weather for a retreat to help them breath, or for the children's closet and more. Project new hope is always there to help. Bill and his team really care.

I was involved in the initial invasion of Iraq in 2003. I have ptsd and met Project New Hope through a different org. I attended a retreat last year and me and my wife loved what we saw. They are so caring and invested in helping vets and their families. They also do tons of outreach for active duty and reserve personnel. I am truly honored to be involved in this organization

I am a veteran caregiver for my husband who was injured in Iraq. As a full time caregiver I get very little opportunity to take time for myself. Through Project New Hopes Caregiver retreat I learned self care techniques like reflexology to manage stress, and had the opportunity to participate in seminars with a life coach and nutritionist. I also found time to bond with other caregivers on a sunset cruise, equine therapy, and fishing trip that made memories of a lifetime. The most valuable and treasured thing that this retreat had was the ability to connect and form life long friendships with other caregivers that could only happen in this nurturing 5 day retreat! To me it was more than just respite, it was a gift of friendship and laughter I was the most grateful for.

Project New Hope is a wonderful organization that works tirelessly to make life better for Veterans, families of those serving and Gold Star Families. The retreats that help not only the Veteran but the family unit work through the difficulties of PTSD are making a huge difference. There are also retreats for survivors of sexual abuse, and Gold Star Families. Drives for school supplies for Military children, clothing and other supplies for infants, food for Veterans in need. Remembrance of Fallen Heroes and support for their families. It is an organization that continues to give.

One of the best organizations I have ever encountered. Thank you for all you do not only for our veterans but also for their families. May God bless you for all your kindness and hard work. It was a pleasure for the Kensington (NH) American Legion Auxiliary Unit 105 to not only send a donation to you, but to also receive assistance with our school supply collection. You made a huge difference!

I have seen on many occasions the relentless energy it takes to be there for our Vets. Seeing is priceless the amount of work and volunteers that contribute to the mission of being a helping hand to those Vets that deserve more. I help when I can, I see where it goes.

There are many things in life that can inspire, comfort, help, support, encourage, define, defend, enlighten.... What comes to mind for me is Project New Hope inc in Worcester. MA. I have never been more inspired since I joined PNH. It's a family story of unity, love, friendship, determination, support and most of all hope for those in need. The CEO, his wife, staff, and volunteers work endless hours, weeks, months into years to make PNH a success.. I am honored to be part of this giving 'family' as a volunteer. We have become friends and I am grateful for the opportunity to 'pay it forward ' to those have served and sacrificed for our USA!!! Thank you Project New Hope.

Project New Hope is an amazing group that provides retreats for veterans and caregivers as well as their families. I have had the pleasure of going to a caregiver retreat in Maine. Not only did I get respite (which was much needed) I forged lifelong friendships. There were therapy sessions that helped with caregiver as well as understanding how we can help ourselves in order to help our veterans. We were offered music therapy, horse therapy, art therapy and reflexology. As well as a nutition seminar and believe it or not free time. There were fishing tours with Shawn and an amazing boat ride around the harbor. The food was all including and incredible. Bill and everyone associated with project new hope were encouraging, kind and informative. I left there with invaluable skills and friendships that were forged over coffee and Smores by the fire. It is difficult to put into words how amazing this retreat was. I cannot wait for my husband to go on a veteran retreat by himself. I know that he will have a life changing trip like I did. Thank you is not enough not only for what was given but also what I have taken away from this retreat. For anyone who is looking for respite and a place to feel understood and gain knowledge that will help you long after you've gone I recommend project new hope. They also help with school supplies, baby supplies and give children of veterans a bright Christmas! They work tirelessly so that families can be with people who truly understand and care. Thank You Bill and Project New Hope for all you do!

Bill Moore-(Project New Hope ) is my cousin. He is extremely caring, generous, and always there for others. His dream was big, but the organization was small, then it reached to an all time high once people realized how much Bill and his team do for the Veterans. We need this organization to continue to thrive, due to the fact it helps so many. Those who care enough to build an organization to help others deserve to have followers, and supporters. Great bunch of people, and supporters make Project New Hope a huge success. Thanks Bill and team for all you do. Our Veterans, and families deserve the best. Be proud, keep standing strong, for the sometimes forgotten heroes of our Country. God Bless
