Online and local support for wounded warrior caregivers
Hearts of Valor (Operation Homefront)
Hearts of ValorTM host support groups in several locations around the United States. The support groups are not led by professionals or certified experts. They are led by the members of Hearts of Valor that are willing to serve as facilitators. The goal of every group is to improve the lives of the people, who are caring for wounded warriors.
We have several Hearts of Valor support groups in different states around the country. To find a group near you, log in and view our list of support groups.
Loved Ones of Combat Veterans (PTSD & TBI Support)
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) are unseen and often misunderstood injuries seen all too commonly in our combat veterans. There is little in the way of resources for the families of these veterans so this group is to help support those who support our veterans.
Wounded Warrior Project Connect
A private online community, WWP Connect™ was created for the exclusive use of alumni, family members, caregivers, and WWP staff.
Here you can chat, share stories, add videos and photos, or write a blog about a favorite topic.
You will also find details about upcoming WWP events and program news. Using WWP Connect, it’s easy to stay in touch with the people you meet at Alumni events.
Family Support Retreat (Wounded Warriors Family Support)
Wounded Warriors Family Support provides vacation retreats to combat wounded veterans and their families free of charge. The family retreats are a chance for wounded veterans to heal and reconnect with their loved ones in a peaceful, non-stress environment.
Our family retreats give combat wounded veterans and their families a break from the pressures of everyday life to take time to become stronger as individuals and families. Wounded veterans are given the opportunity to decompress and share in positive experiences with their spouses and children, strengthening the bonds of their families and making lasting memories.
Currently we have retreats available at Bahama Bay Resort in Orlando, Florida and Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming.
