Hope For The Warriors works daily with post-9/11 combat injured service members and veterans, their families, and families of the fallen to meet immediate financial needs. The program assists service members, veterans and their families in two specific ways. First, program coordinators provide casework assistance and resource referrals that assist the client both today and in the future. Secondly, if the client meets the criteria (directly related to a combat injury), financial support may be given to assist the family in the short-term.
Critical Care Coordination involves integrated case management on various levels engaging individual wounded service members, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), and/or the warrior unit in which they are associated, medical professionals (if applicable), the Department of Defense, and other nonprofit organizations.
Lengthy hospital stays, inpatient treatment, delays in disability claims processing, loss of income, and unexpected expenses create financial burdens for families. Originally designed to meet short-term needs in the days following an injury, the Critical Care Coordination program has expanded to assist post-9/11 combat-wounded and their families as they navigate through long-term recovery.
Critical Care Coordination addresses needs that are a direct result of a service member's combat-related injury.
Financial assistance is meant to help with essentials to daily living, including: utilities, groceries, rent, mortgage, and rental deposits. Payment is always made to a third party. Applicants may apply for financial assistance only once a year.
As a general rule, Hope For The Warriors does not approve requests for vehicle repairs, payments, or purchases.
