The foundation we’re covering today is one of the most recent in terms of its founding. The Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) began in 2003 as a way to provide free services and programs to injured veterans and their families, with a focus on their financial, mental, and physical well-being. It seeks to raise awareness and encourage the public to assist with the needs of injured service members.
The services and programs provided by WWP include outreach and engagement, mental health support, health, and wellness, as well as assistance with finding employment and pursuing an education. Current statistics on the WWP website show a satisfaction rate of at least ninety percent among the various services and programs offered by the WWP and they are offered to veterans and service members that have incurred physical or mental injury, a wound, or an illness during their military service on or after September 11, 2001.
Thanks to the support of the public and donations, the WWP has served more than 100,000 warriors and their family and it has raised over $160 million in benefits. If you would like to contribute, you can find more information on how to donate or how to host a fundraiser by visiting the Wounded Warrior Project website at https://www.woundedwarriorproject.org/.
