You guys are absolutely awesome. I had the opportunity to go fishing in Alaska in July. I don't remember the last time I felt so relaxed and right at home. What a great group of guys. I had the time of my life catching salmon on the Kenai. Thanks you so much.

I was medically retired last year and had no idea when I would be paid. My Rainy day fund was gone and my wife was pregnant. When I didn't know where to turn Hope for the Warrior threw me the life line I needed to survive. I'll never forget it. Thank you!
Recently, I experienced financial hardship and I reached out to Hope for the Warriors. They were courteous and very communicative with me about what they had to offer. I appreciated their caring and honesty during the entire process. Thanks to them I am slowly getting back on track.
I reached out to various organizations 'supporting' veterans but ended up nowhere. It was only Hope for the Worriors that stood by me, and even made follow ups afterwards. I'm forever grateful knowing our services protecting this country is appreciated. Thank you Hope for the Worriors for serving us and giving us that 'hope' as manifested in your name.
H4W has helped my family a few times. I really appreciate how they call and check on us on a regular basis. This is one of the best associations out there. I have hit serious ups and downs since we got out of the USMC and they have been with my family every step of the way I have dealt with other larger organizations who do not measure up!
They have been helping me since 2007 or 2008 and they always check on me and see what my family and I might need and how we are doing. They are by far the most family oriented organization I have had to deal with. I'm not sure what I would have done if I didn't have them.
I wanted to let everyone know about Hope for the Warriors (if you don’t know about them yet). I have had been involved with MANY Non-Profit Veteran Organizations since my discharge but I must say that I have never experienced a more personable and family oriented organization than Hope for the Warriors. I was introduced to Hope for the Warriors in their earliest days when they just started. I had noticed the above and beyond attention they gave my family and I then but I thought maybe it was because they had just started. I was wrong. Now, years later they still call me and check on my family and me, I still receive Holiday cards, and they have never forgotten me. I don’t know how they manage to remember the details of each veteran they help especially with how big they have become. I believe that they must have someone in their staff that is a great judge of character because they seem to hire people that are so selfless and caring. Thank you so much Hope for the Warriors and all the great staff! You have helped me and my family more than you can imagine.
Review from CharityNavigator
"Great organization. Really helped me out alot and kept me from being homeless after I was out of work for 3 months due to surgery for a combat related wound that had gotten worst."
Hope for the Warriors provided services for my brother who upon his return from active duty was suffering both physical and mental issues. They help provide him with needed counseling and a support system that basically helped save his life. He has worked hard and now gives back to his fellow veterans by volunteering, attending support groups, and offering a helping hand where needed. Thanks to the folks at Hope he is dealing his issues and "getting back to life" as he is fond of saying. Without Hope I am not sure he would still be here. I can not speak highly enough about their programs or the good they do for our service member and our families. Their motto is restoring hope and they definitely did that in our case.
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.
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.
This organization has set the standard in care for nonprofits who serve military families and veterans. There are many opportunities to find hope through their services!
Hope for the warriors is an amazing organization. From the first day I met them at another event they been like a family to me. I am an OEF/OIF veteran suffering from physical and non visible wounds and they have helped me a lot. They are always there to talk to regardless of the time of day even if its a hey I just wanted to say hi to just a ear to vent. They also got me out of my house and back into running and being active again. Before I met them or became a part of the team I rarely was physically active esp. with running. They helped me through my first ever half marathon and never thought I would be able to complete one with the injuries I had. They helped motivated me and pushed me through it. They also helped me get into my first ever biathlon. I would recommend this organization to any veteran who is struggling or needs some great resources. They defiantly live by their motto RESTORING SELF-FAMILY-HOPE.
I am very impressed with the level of commitment that Hope for the Warriors has towards military service members. I have donated money in the past, and felt great knowing that the funds went directly to purchase items for an event that gave back to some local military family members / caregivers. There is a genuine desire to help and support service members, veterans and their families. Definitely a worth-while cause.
Outstanding organization, staff, and programming. Always willing to go that extra mile to help out wounded warriors and veterans such as myself and my fellow marines. And always willing to collaborate with other like-minded organizations with similar missions.
Hope for the warriors has been a great point of contacts for veterans in the DFW area, they are the organization that I always think about when someone wants to help vets. I been on both sides as a wounded veterans getting help and as a wounded veteran donating to their Gala in Frisco Texas.
I've had the great pleasure of being an alumni of the Hope For The Warrior organization. From my initial enrollment I was afforded treatment reserved for royalty. I'm an Operation Enduring Freedom Veteran and a service connected disabled Veteran and the folks at Hope For The Warrior are always fully attentive to the needs of my family and my recovery. I've been on several trips and events with this team and I can fully attest to their attention to detail and their efforts to make a difference in the lives of all the veterans in the program. Their synergistic approach to my recovery and reintegration has given me the opportunity to strengthen bonds with my family and community. I get weekly emails from all their respective departments to ensure I'm taking advantage of all their programs. Although I'm somewhat out of the state and hundreds of miles away Christian Nunez communicates with me practically every day to keep me abreast of new programs and opportunities. I enthusiastically recommend this organization to many returning Veterans without reservation.
I am a Post 9/11 Disabled Veteran and have taken part in many events sponsored by Hope for the Warriors (H4W) . H4W has been terrific and EXTREMELY SUPPORTIVE. I have a great interest in their Outdoor Program. H4W either sponsor and arrange numerous events throughout the year. All service members that take part have greatly benefited from H4W. I want to say THANK YOU to H4W and salute all who support this wonderful non profit organization.
Hope for the Warriors is a great organization! I've had the pleasure of raising funds for this organization and have participated in some of the group events both at the local and national level. The staff is great and extremely friendly. Their events are highly organized and the quality of people, veterans and family members I've met are highly superb. I highly recommend that people join, become active and support Hope 4 the Warriors!!! You won't regret it.
As the Asst. Director of Veteran Services and Faculty Adviser of our flourishing Student Veterans of America (SVA) chapter here at Pace University, it is with great pleasure and admiration to thank "Hope for the Warriors" for their unwavering dedication and commitment to our proud student veteran contingency. Throughout the years HFT has served as a tremendous resource and powerful advocate as veterans transition "from solider to student." The countless number of veteran-centric events and initiatives bringing veterans together in providing assistance and support across a multitude of domains here in the greater NY-Metro area has not gone unnoticed. Our veterans remain most grateful for their demonstrated altruism. We look forward to collaborating with and attending HFT's future events!
Hope For The Warriors is an amazing nonprofit serving post 9/11 veterans. This organization is one of the best around, they really care about our service members and their families.
I have volunteered for a number of different veterans not-for-profits. Hope For The Warriors stands out among the best I have seen. I have had the honor and privilege of getting to know so many people that work with Hope For The Warriors and others that have been directly benefited by their work over the past few months. A common word that the people I have spoke with use is 'family'. The folks that work and volunteer for this not-for-profit are just that, an amazing family that truly cares about the work they do. H4TW is truly doing God's work for our military members and their families. Keep up the great work!
Hope For The Warriors is an amazing organization which is visible in how they care for the recipients of the donations first and foremost! Their staff, especially Gus Cabarcus, is a shining example of how dedication and heart make a difference in the lives of the wounded veterans. Our family choses carefully how we donate our money and Hope For The Warriors will remain a staple because of its passion for the veterans.
I have witnessed firsthand the hard-work, generosity, support, and love this organization offers to our wounded veterans and their families. I had the privilege of meeting some of their great employees; like Gus Cabarcas and others, too many to list all, at a sponsored event that I took part in as a returning injured veteran from Afghanistan. I am currently under medical care, as a Wounded Warrior at Fort Sam Houston, Tx. I was a lucky participant in an event hosted by Hope for the Warriors in Tyler Texas and I can’t say enough about the caring, professionalism and support I received from this organization and its staff. Everyone whom I meet involved with this group has such a desire to make a difference in the lives of those who have been injured. It was truly a welcome home for me that I believe far too few combat Soldiers and veterans get to experience! I hope to continue building a relationship with Hope for the Warriors, not only as a Soldier but as a civilian and supporter.
Thank you, Hope for the Warriors!
You have my Gratitude and Support.

FERIDIES®, a family owned manufacturer of Virginia peanuts in Courtland, VA partnered with Hope For The Warriors in 2013 to promote 18oz cans of Hope For The Warriors® Salted Virginia Peanuts. FERIDIES® and Hope For The Warriors® have been working together to market this gourmet specialty snack food to raise money for our national heroes. FERIDIES donates $1.00 from the sale of each can of peanuts to the organization. Last year we sold over 10,000 cans of peanuts. The FERIDIIES® family became connected to Hope For The Warriors® through their friend, Manny Jimenez who was injured in an IED blast in Afghanistan in 2010 while serving with the United States Marine Corps. Hope For The Warriors has played a tremendous role in Mannys' life and many others and we are proud to be working with them to raise money and awareness. The staff has been extremely helpful and supportive. We are honored to be connected with such a fabulous organization.
I have worked with Hope for the Warriors for several years and have enjoyed every minute of our working relationship. I do custom picture framing and have the pleasure of helping Hope for the Warriors award their benefactors with framed presentations. The dedication that every staff member I've worked with has been admirable - they sincerely care about the wounded warriors and are so proud of doing all that they can to promote their welfare.
Hope of the Warriors is an incredible organization! Everyone I have met or had some type of communication with has been amazing. I'm so thankful I was introduced to this organization and proud to serve with them. Volunteering my time and services is just a small way to give back to the community and to show my appreciation to our military. I hope to continue building a relationship with Hope for the Warriors.
Hope for the Warriors is remarkable. Every event / fundraiser that I have attended notably touches each person attending. This organization truly understands social responsibility. Hope for the Warriors positively impact the lives of each and every veteran and their family. This nonprofit does not let "No" get in the way. Special thanks to Gus for he has done in such a short amount of time in the Texas Region.
Hope for the Warriors is one of the most warm hearted organizations I have ever had the honor to work with. Everyone who is involved with this group has such a desire to make a difference in the lives of those who have been injured. It has been an honor and a blessing to be involved with this outstanding group of people and see first hand the work they do. Being a Marine Mom myself, knowing there are people out there doing what they do for no other reason but to help improve the lives of those who have served this Country is so amazing.
I couldn't be more pleased with this organization. Unlike others in all kinds of charities that spend large amounts trying to get bigger and bigger and reducing their percentages of actual contributions to their causes, Hope for the Warriors strikes me as trying to put as much into their cause as they have, without stretching and paying for commercials, mailings, including address labels and on and on.
I'd much rather support an organization that goes the other way--for excellence rather than size. We contribute to a fair number of causes and so we pay attention to which do well and when we find one, such as Hope for the Warriors, we both support it and encourage friends and family to join us.
Hope for the Warriors is an exceptional organization that changes lives. The dedicated efforts by their staff to carefully plan and execute their programs far exceeds my expectations. In speaking with the many veterans who have been served by Hope for the Warriors, you get a sense of who much they impact and improve the lives of those who have served our country.
Great organization that provides genuine services to the disabled veterans. Keep up the good work.
As the Vice President of Rock n Roll Custom Paint my family and i are proud to be a donor and helper in this cause. we are a family owned and operated buisness that knows how important it is to give back . We take charity to our vets very seriously and have done solid research on H4W. They are a top notch charity that helps our vets on so many levels. They also make sure we know how they operate and where donations are going to. That is very important to us as we always like to know what we do as a company actually goes to help out soldiers in need. We have continued on many levels to support their efforts and to bring friends and organizations to help in this cause . We have not been disappointed, and look forward to doing so many more big scale events and bring more opportunities to this organization in very near time. Thanks for all our vets do and to H4W for all they do and allowing us to be a part of it
As a Marine returning home during Vietnam society in general did not approve of the military. Today, with organizations like "Hope For The Warriors" I am PROUD that we are taking better care of our returning veterans. Gus Cabarcas our local Community Development Coordinator does an OUTSTANDING job promoting "Hope For The Warriors" and keeps us informed of all the great things they are doing and can do for our returning vets. I think it is a great organization and I'm proud of people like Gus Cabarcus for taking a leadership role. Semper Fi...
H4W is a great non-profit organization that provides numerous services to veterans and their families across the nation. I was first introduced to this awesome group back in 2012 when I was transitioning out of the Marine Corps. They put on a week long seminar that was applicable and modern. I currently live in Texas and I reached out to some of the contacts I met in San Diego and they put me in contact with Gus Cabarcus who is the H4W coordinator in the north Texas area. Gus has been a great contact and has invited my family and I to a plethora of events in our area. I would most definitely recommend this organization to anyone who is a wounded veteran or to individuals who are looking to donate their money to a good cause.
Hope For The Warriors helped me when I needed it most. After being permanently injured by an IED in Iraq, I was medically retired after 13 years in the Army. I finished my college degree and was actively seeking employment for a year. During that time, the recession hit hard and hiring freezes happened all around. After a year unemployed, I had depleted my savings account and could not pay my mortgage for the first time ever. My wounded warrior counselor sent my information to Hope For Warriors and the organization immediately jumped in to assist me by providing the funds to my mortgage company to cover that month as well as the late fee. It eased a lot of stress off of me as I knew once I got behind on that, it will be an even larger struggle to deal with on each passing month. I am very grateful and blessed for Hope for the Warriors and the assistance they provided to me. The people I spoke with was very kind and she provided me with a lot of information. Luckily, I gained employment the following month and was able to get my finances back on track quickly which I wouldn't have been able to do if Hope For The Warriors hadn't been there for me. God Bless this organization and the caring volunteers who are there for us veterans.
Hope for the Warriors is an engaged and active member of our community. The valuable programs it facilitates serve to support the needs of the veterans and their families. This organization, it's founders, and all of its members come straight from the heart. I am honored to have learned about them and proud to wear the Hope For The Warriors bracelet.
Hope For The Warriors, is not only Dedicated and focused on showing selfless service to all military members that have gone above and beyond the call of duty. HFTW continues to deliver positive site on their Missions in place, being true to the cause for all military along with their family members. They have been in my life since the beginning and continue to be there through good times and bad. I have enjoyed working with HFTW as they continue to keep their promises throughout the whole Organization, from the CEO all the way to the staff members within their teams. The knowledge base of all team members is on track, It truly provides the Hope we all seek after losing precious things in our lives and abilities. I am blessed to have Hope For The Warriors in my life.
Every now and then, you find an organization that combines an extraordinary mission, flawless execution and an ability to carry out their work by stretching financial resources in the most impressive ways. Hope For the Warriors is such an organization. The common thread for non-profits that fit into this unique category is the passion of their leadership to those people and families who benefit from their work. The small but highly-energietic group of staff, volunteers and Board members who carry out the work for this worthy non-profit, demonstrate this passion every day.
Jack Marin explained the purpose of Hope for the Warriors and I was very impressed with the mission and the professional discussion I had with Jack about their fund raising practices. I immediately agreed to write a check to this important organization.
Searching for the best way to help our veterans in their return home, my husband and I learned about Hope for the Warriors. What a wonderful organization, from their creativity and care for the unique needs of our vets to their responsible stewardship of the funds we've been able to share! We are very happy knowing that there is such a committed team of people, willing and able to transform our gifts into the things and experiences that will help our returning veterans and their families transition as well as possible from active duty into civilian and family life.
Thank you, Hope for the Warriors team!
Hope for warrior is a wonderful non-profit organization. I have donated and volunteered to their organization. They are very organized provide great services to our vets.
A truly wonderful organization that addresses our Wounded Warrior's/veteran's most basic needs to ensure they have a viable future. Exceptionally dedicated to making a difference for these great individuals. Their help is focused and definitely has a positive impact. Great organization to support.
Incredible and irreplaceable organization dedicated to helping those who have helped each and every one of us so many times. Top caliber leadership and a selfless, dedicated team.
Proud and honored to be involved.
Hope for the Warriors is a great non profit organization that focuses on helping veterans I had the pleasure of meeting the DFW rep, and hes been of great help with assisting me with job opportunities and other great services that i had no idea were available for veterans.
Hope for the Warriors is a wonderful nonprofit organization and their cause really touches your heart strings. What greater calling than to provide assistance to our wounded young men and women. I have also been very impressed with their competent and caring staff. Jeff Mullins
Hope for the Warriors is the model all non-profits should follow, totally dedicated, selfless service to our service members.. The organization has never lost sight of their mission from the beginning and the list of service members they have assisted is too long to list here. The staff of this organization has no hourly limit in their workday and they work relentlessly to accomplish their mission. They are a pleasure to work with - true Americans doing great things for out heroes.
Hope For The Warriors is an organization I love giving my time to. I am a TV host and I have had the chance to participate in the golf events for Hope For The Warriors near Camp Lejeune, NC. The organization is second to none as far as caring for our servicemen and servicewomen, but they have also provided an outlook for their futures. If anything, you need to tour the Wounded Warrior Facility at Camp Lejeune. You will see how far we have come in helping our troops who have given so much and will continue to give for years and maybe decades.
Hope for the warriors helps us so much . I am very thankful for them and for what they have done for me and my family since things happened with my husband. They are a wonderful hope and I know I can count on them if I need them and I am very thankful to have them.
I have worked directly with Hope for the past 2 years and found them to be (top to bottom) one of the most outstanding Non-Profits in America.
In my professional and civic life I have served on numerous non-profit Boards and Volunteered countless hours so I do not write this positive review lightly.
The good work these folks do is amazing and it is run with the highest ethical and professional standards!
I have interacted with this charity on several occasions and always found them to be exemplary. The cause they serve is obviously a great one, and the way that they go about it is with the utmost professionalism. They are clearly focused with the goal of the charity and I feel comfortable donating and participating with them that my money and efforts are being well used.
As both a volunteer board members (5 years) and a donor, I have watched this organization begin with lofty goals (some might call them dreams) and then proceed to meet and exceed them. To a person, this is a knowledgeable and dedicated staff led by true visionaries, all in touch with the very special needs of the service members it serves. They are at once inspired and realistic.
I became a donor for Hope for the Warriors after reviewing the cost benefit data for this and other charities. I am impressed that such a high percentage actually goes to the warrior himself/herself. This is a charity for everyone to check out ... The organization keeps it PERSONAL and the volunteers make this unlike many others. Very highly recommended for your donor dollars.
Virginia Beach, VA
I have been a proud board member of Hope for the Warriors and also an advisory board member for several years , I must say that Robin Kelleher , CEO and Tina Atherall EVP, And the whole team at Hope for the Warriors are exceptionally dedicated and truly are compassionate about the needs of our returning wounded servicemen and women I am familiar with many not for profit organizations and I must say that this Is the most outstanding organization I've ever come in contact with . If you review their website you will see the many wonderful projects that provide much-needed assistance in many forms to those who have worn the cloth of our military and have been wounded .
I have been aware of this wonderful and impactful organization, Hope For The warriors, for several years.
It is clear to me that Robin Kelleher and her team are caring, professional, and extremely dedicated to our wounded warriors and effective at the same time. I have sent in several checks and I have read on their website updates the wonderful events and support that they are giving to those who went into harm's way on our behalf. I also had the opportunity to meet Robin and some of here team at an event, and I'm now even more convinced that if you want to help our warroriers and families in nedd this is the best organization to contribute to.
This Organization is truly amazing. They standby their statement of assisting the service member, their family, and families of the fallen. They open up their arms to all with without treating anyone with any disdain. I am tryly proud to be a part of this organization and look forward to what it brings in the future.
