The veterans who served our country in the past are over looked and not assisted in many ways. The Wounded Veterans Foundation takes pride in assisting ALL wounded veterans on a daily basis with the departments provided.
H.E.L.P stands for help, encourage, learn, and prevent. With this program we want to change the daily loss of our veteran community through brotherhood and sisterhood. This program is made for veterans to talk to veterans. We want veterans to come together and open up about what might be going on to people who understand first hand. With this program we encourage veterans to partner with other veterans in coping with issues. In conjunction with veterans going to psychologists who may not understand what they have experienced, support groups will be conducted with Veteran's issues in mind, allowing them to tailor their experience to their individual needs.

Mission: Provide service dogs to veterans with combat related PTSD and other mental health issues.
Breakdown: The service dog department partners with other service dog organizations across the United States to provide service dogs to veterans in need. The Wounded Veterans Foundation covers the leftover cost of the dog that the other organizations do not cover or the total cost if we do not have an organization that will cover some of the cost. The veteran will then go through an application process through the organization that we are working with in order to receive the dog.
It has been shown that service dogs can help prevent suicide, get veterans off of certain medications, and provide a special companionship to the owner. After the veteran is approved and ready to receive the dog, we will provide the following.
Mission: Help wounded veterans meet the required needs after becoming disabled or help wounded/disabled veterans by rehabilitating their home.
Breakdown: The housing department is a great way to make veterans’ lives much easier. For example, if a Vietnam veteran becomes disabled from agent orange or any other military service related incident, we can send in a contractor to quote the price on the needed home improvements. We will build a handicap accessible porch, install railings, replace the old bathtub with a handicap tub, open doorways, install a lift for second level homes, lower sinks, and much more on a needed basis. We can leave that veteran with zero daily frustrations in adjusting to his or her new situation.
