Hope for the Warriors
Founded by military families at the Marine Corps Base Camp in Lejeune, NC, Hope for the Warriors programming encourages health and wellness, peer engagement, and connection to community resources for transition-focused service members, Veterans, and military families.
What is Hope for the Warriors and What Do They Do?
Led by combat Veterans and military family members, this non-profit is among the Veteran service organizations that work so hard to serve those who have sacrificed so much. Their holistic approach to well-being offers three core programs to help military families and service members through their transition to civilian life.
Clinical Health and Wellness
There are several opportunities for transition support. A Warrior’s Wish awards financial grants to severely injured Veterans. Warrior’s Compass provides resources for Veterans beginning new careers. Drive for Hope is a comprehensive driving program designed to help those who have suffered a major injury regain independence. Spouse and caregiver scholarships offers assistance for continued education.
Sports and Recreation
The sports and rec program reintroduces warrior athletes to a favorite sport or hobby and provides disabled Veterans the opportunity to learn new skills by using adaptive equipment. 30 x 30 presents 30-day virtual challenges, Team Hope allows athletes of all skill levels to engage in competitive sports, and Outdoor Adventures helps service members reconnect to nature via wilderness sports and recreational opportunities.
