I began as an Intern at The Soldiers Project through the MSW program at USC. Not only did I gain valuable experience here in the non-profit sector, I also got to see first hand how dedicated and genuinely interested they are in the well-being of military families. I myself am a surviving spouse and found it personally gratifying to know that a program, organization, and people of such caliber are looking to meet the needs of our service members and their families. I love TSP and thank you for all you do.

Kudos to this great non-profit for providing a psychological safety net for military service members, veterans and their loved ones. Our support of organizations such as The Soldiers Project provides us the opportunity to express our pride and appreciation to and for the many who have served and sacrificed to make our country free.

I have been involved with this organization for 4 years helping with financial and operational issues. I have seen first hand the dedication and energy expended by staff and by the wonderful volunteer therapists who have a giant impact on the lives of our veterans. As a veteran myself I appreciate the commitment of long term therapy and confidentiality which can be life-changing for the men and women who have served and are serving. I also really like that they offer services to family members who can be heavily impacted by the issues their loved ones are confronting. I would encourage everyone to find a way to help The Soldiers Project, whether by volunteering (especially licensed therapists) or cash and in-kind donations.

I worked with the staff of this organization to write their Annual Report. Through that process I met and spoke to several service men and women who told me The Soldiers Project saved their jobs, families, even their lives. The stories were both heartbreaking and uplifting.

I also met with therapists who give their time pro bono to help veterans in need of confidential and immediate help. The training they receive from The Soldiers Project makes them uniquely qualified to take on the issues faced by service men and women as well as the family and friends of those in need.

The staff members of The Soldiers Project are all passionate and dedicated to giving help to veterans and their families. The taboo of mental health problems in the military is an enormous stigma to overcome. The Soldiers Project recognizes this, and provides what no other non-profit offers to vets: Total Confidentiality. Their plans to grow nationally through outreach and word of mouth recommendations will continue to be an invaluable source of comfort, relief, and support for our veterans who are coping with the unseen wounds of war.

I have been working with The Soldiers Project for nearly a year as a web and marketing consultant. Through a network of volunteer therapists, they provide free, one-on-one, confidential counseling to post-9/11 veterans. Though they are a small organization, they are extremely passionate about, and dedicated to their work, and he people they support. Everything they do is centered around how it supports our service men and women recover from the unseen wounds that war leaves behind.

The Soldiers Project does much needed work to help our veterans heal from the "invisible wounds"of war.They have an ingenious structure in that the confidential therapy they provide is free to all who may need it-soldiers, veterans, and their loved ones, and in private offices. A lot of the vets most in need of therapy are shut out of the VA Healthcare system due to an unfavorable military discharge status. TSP imposes no such limitation.
It's a great organization doing important work on a shoestring budget.

The Soldiers Project is a crucial piece of the effort to heal post 9/11 veterans so that they once again be productive members of society. By providing unlimited, free therapy to soldiers and their loved ones, they are assured of ongoing emotional support.

The Soldiers Project picks up where the VA leaves off. They are dedicated to ensuring that, not only Veterans are taken care of, but their loved ones are as well. They have been doing this work for over 10 years and their clinicians are some of the most qualified providers around.

The Soldier's Project (TSP) organization is made up of truly compassionate individuals and volunteers. The Veteran and/or the Military family are the number one priority of TSP. I worked for the chapter in Sacramento, CA and enjoyed every minute of it, doing outreach events and connecting to community resources such as colleges to get the word out about TSP. This non-profit organization is truly amazing and the five star rating is well deserved.

I had volunteered at a local youth organization in the past. I lost my son to brain cancer in 1993. He was in the UNITED STATES AIR FORCE. I know what brain injury is and how difficult it is to cope with, especiallly without help.

The Soldiers Project gives back to our men and women and their families in ways you cannot imagine, until you need them. I am only a volunteer, but I see the grateful eyes of those who are experiencing this lifelong change and I know they appreciate our help.

Without them, we are nothing and giving back is my thanks. God Bless our Soldiers.

I have known of The Soldiers Project from its inception and it is one of the finest charities around. They have definitely filled a gap left by our military and our VA system. The Soldiers Project has provided vital treatment to military personnel who were in dire need and could not get their needs met by the military and the VA system. I have the utmost respect for the founder and head of The Soldiers Project, Dr. Judith Broder. Those who work with The Soldiers Project have demonstrated caring and concern for our military personnel wounded by PTSD and I applaud them for all that they have contributed.
