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 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 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.

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.

I am a retired Marine Major General and recently participated in one of the Hope for the Warriors fund raising events and while there met most of the organization's leadership and many of the sponsors and volunteers. HFTW of course serves a popular and necessary cause which is most evident by the vast number of dedicated volunteers who provide numerous services in making this a most successful operation. While I am not involved in financial decisions, knowing the quality of Board members and senior leadership, I am confident that HFTW functions as a unit with minimum overhead and maximum benefit in improving the lives of our American heros and their families. If one is looking for a Foundation to support financially or to become involved with in any respect, HFTW will make you feel good and at the same time serve a patriotic and humane mission.

Thank you H4W! I ran my first ever 10 mile race in October thanks to the support of H4W. I trained for the Army 10 miler as part of Team H4W and also did some fundraising for this amazing organization. Thank you so much for helping me reach this amazing achievement!

As a Veteran I am usually cautious of the many non-profits that want to "help" Veterans, this is why I am writing this review, the first time I have ever written a review about a charity, especially concerning Veterans. Hope for the Warriors is AWESOME, their dedication and care for the assistance of our Veterans is OUTSTANDING. As a US Marine Veteran I am PROUD to have met and spoken with the members of this organization, I look forward to volunteering at their events and support their efforts in any way possible.

As the proud daughter of a Marine and Vietnam veteran (who also has extended family in many branches of the military) I feel that it's important to give back to the many brave souls who sacrifice so much for our freedom. With Hope For The Warriors, I know my contribution goes directly to helping our servicemen and servicewomen. I’ve also had the privilege of talking to the President, Robin Kelleher, and she is truly genuine in her efforts to enhance the quality of life for our wounded service members and their families. Hope For The Warriors is an outstanding charity--one that everyone should do their best to support.

I have had the opportunity to engage with some of the families that have been served by Hope For The Warriors and their resounding sentiment is the care they received. They felt a part of this family and they felt like the staff "got it". I am proud to be associated with them and look forward to a long future.

Hope For The Warriors is run by a great group of people. I have seen first hand how deeply they care about and for the service members and their families. I remember when Hope For The Warriors was just an idea and now it has grown to be such an amazing charity.

There are countless stories of all the good work and heart felt gestures that this organization and it's volunteers have done throughout the years. The story below is one that happened recently and is very dear to my heart.

I have a very good friend (age 22) who's husband was injured (and later died) while serving in Afghanistan. Robin with Hope For The warriors saw to it personally that my friend had the appropriate clothing and things she would need to fly to Germany. It seems like such a small thing to do, but when you get a call that your husband is injured, the last thing you think about is what the weather will be like. My friend had packed for warm weather and it was very cold in Germany.

The entire organization has been such a huge support system for my firend. For this I will forever be grateful to Robin and everyone with Hope For The Warriors.

I had the privilege of working as a volunteer photographer for a recent 3 day event in Tyler, Texas where our Warriors were given a memorable weekend of golf, food, friendship and respect. I saw firsthand the care and concern that is given to each of the soldiers by this organization and I was very impressed by how each person showed a genuine desire for helping our heroes to feel welcome, honored and respected. I believe that Hope For The Warriors is a credible organization that does exactly what it says it does and I would gladly work with them again any time. Great job!

I first met members of this charity several years ago because of my MCL's support of the Wounded Warrior Barracks. I was more amazed at enthusiasm and dedication of this agency's members virtually all volunteers. Their response to Marine family needs, who I referred to them was rapid, and met their immediate needs. This response time during the critical needs period really makes a difference to these Wounded Warriors and particularly the family. Looking for a good "Bang for my charity Bucks", i researched their IRS990's, to compare. Needless to say, something they can be proud of.
Keep up the energy and continued success!
