Hope For The Warriors is a national nonprofit based in Northern Virginia dedicated to restoring a sense of self, family and hope for post 9/11 veterans, service members and military families.

The organization was founded in 2006 on Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, in North Carolina by military families that witnessed, firsthand, the effects of war on their families and community.

For over 14 years, Hope For The Warriors has continued to provide a full cycle of care through many programs to restore self, family, and hope to post-9/11 service members, veterans, military families, caregivers and families of the fallen across the country.

What began as post-combat bedside care and support, has evolved to a national organization that has adapted to ongoing changes within the military community. The organization has stayed the course with our country’s post-9/11 veteran population as physical wounds healed, but emotional wounds still need care.

Hope For The Warriors believes warriors can thrive with access to integrated services focused on their individual and collective well-being. Recognizing the lack of ideal resources for every service member and military family in their individual communities, Hope For The Warriors offers wide variety of virtual capabilities.

Since its inception, Hope For The Warriors has served over 33,500 service members, veterans and military families through a comprehensive approach to well-being focusing on, clinical health and wellness, sports and recreation and transition.

If Hope For The Warriors does not have a program that meets a specific need, team members can connect with one of the organization’s more than 100 Partners in Mission.
