Wounded Warrior Project(link)
– A comprehensive program addressing mental and physical health to help get service members back on track
Veterans and service members who incurred a physical or mental injury, illness, or wound while serving in the military on or after September 11, 2001. You are our focus. You are our mission.
Here, you’re not a member – you’re an alumnus, a valued part of a community that’s been where you’ve been, and understands what you need. Everything we offer is free because there’s no dollar value to finding recovery and no limit to what you can achieve.
Hook Line and Heroes(link)
– A fishing ministry focused on serving veterans
Hook Line & Heroes was founded to bring God’s love to our disabled

Fishing offers the opportunity to show God’s love and our appreciation to those
who have served us and build a strong Christian relationship.

– Legal assistance
The Veterans Consortium Pro Bono Program (Pro Bono Program) was created in 1992, with a dual mission: to provide assistance to unrepresented veterans or their family members who have filed appeals at the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims (Court); and to recruit and train attorneys in the then fledgling field of veterans’ law.
BONUS: Tech For Troops.
Of course, this list wouldn’t be complete without mentioning our own program.
Veterans are proud, capable people. We’re just here to give you the tools you need to step out of where you’re stuck.
