What Does the Wounded Warriors Project Do?
WWP serves wounded servicemembers and veterans by using a multi-pronged approach to create healthy civilian transitions. WWP provides veterans with assistance in the employment, educational, medical and social arenas. The project recognizes that wounded veterans have multiple needs that need to be addressed systematically and comprehensively.
WWP project provides wounded servicemembers with the opportunity to:
- Participate in PTSD workshops
- Compete in WWP athletic events and sports
- Engage in employment placement
- Work with family members
- Receive a wounded mentor
- Combat stress
Making Sure You Get All Of Your Benefits
The WWP helps wounded warriors maximize their benefits. Financial insecurity keeps many veterans awake at night, and the WWP Benefits Service helps servicemembers fill out every claim properly. Whether servicemembers qualify for assistance from the VA Office or the Department of Defense, Wounded Warrior Project and courageous mentors and volunteers will help.
