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!

I'm a disabled vet trying to get his life back for myself and my family. I went to Camp Hope the PTSD Foundation of America in houston PTSDUAS.ORG trying to get help from HFTW was less than becoming. I ended up having to barrow from others to get into a home for my family and still owe them back. I'm sure you guys help out a lot of people but for someone that was homless you helped me even less thanks for nothing but keep up the good work

Hope for the Warriors truly gave us hope. After getting medically discharged from the Army, I was unable to work. Hope for the Warriors assited us financially, and was very quick to do so.

Hope for the Warriors is an outstanding organization. They have helped my family and I through some troubling times. One time I was attacked and robbed outside a McDonalds and Hope for the Warriors got in contact with me less than two days after the incident. They overnighted several prepaid visa gift cards to help me financially because the robbers took my money, debit card and visa, they also took my IDs including my VA medical card. Hope for the Warriors then contacted the VA on my behalf to make sure I got a replacement VA medical card. This is not the first time Hope for the Warriors have helped me and I know I can contact them anytime in the future because they really care about helping veterans. Thank you Hope and Semper Fi.

Hope for the Warriors is an excellent organization. I attended one of their caregiver workshops and learned how to better take care of myself and my warrior. Their friendly and professional staff made me feel at ease. Additionally, they answers all of my questions and provided lunch, crafts and yoga at the end of the session.

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.

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 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.
