Program from Hope For The Warriors turns 11 dreams into reality

Hope For The Warriors Logo
We rigorously review Wishes to provide a holistic approach for addressing the physical, emotionally, and financial needs and goals of the entire family.

Hope For The Warriors® will fulfill 11 long-standing Wishes for service members nationwide through its A Warrior’s Wish® Program. This year, Hope For The Warriors® has invested more than $71K to support service members, veterans, and military families. Granting Wishes and fulfilling dreams for service members and their families, A Warrior’s Wish® was the first program offered by Hope For The Warriors®, a national nonprofit dedicated to restoring a sense of self, restoring the family unit, and restoring hope for service members and military families.

The nature of these Wishes varies in scope from business, fitness, financial, and outdoor-related. From recreational and household equipment, a musical instrument, a honeymoon, and the replacement of stolen goods from a fallen Marine, the enrichment process continues long after the Wish is granted to promote stability within the lives of these heroes and their families.

“Hope For The Warriors® is proud to grant these Wishes to service members moving forward on their road to recovery,” said Robin Kelleher, Hope For The Warriors® President. “We rigorously review Wishes to provide a holistic approach for addressing the physical, emotionally, and financial needs and goals of the entire family.”

Both service members and spouses turn to Hope For the Warriors® and the A Warrior’s Wish® Program to fulfill goals of assimilating to their new lives. For these individuals and their families, once again enjoying prior lifestyles and activities is very much a part of their restoration process, and Hope For The Warriors® recognizes this importance.

Beyond meeting immediate physical and emotional needs, A Warrior’s Wish® fulfills a desire for quality of life beyond recovery and a quest for life gratifying endeavors. Whether the Wish is for equipment for a favorite hobby to support therapeutic benefits and rehabilitation, tools for a small business as a new means of supporting the family unit upon separating from the military, or taking a trip to reclaim themselves or experience something new, Hope For The Warriors® honors the goals and desires of wounded service members and their families.
