PROGRAM SPOTLIGHT FAMILY SUPPORT
When a warrior faces challenges, the family experiences these challenges along with the warrior. The stress is real. And so is the support of Wounded Warrior Project. We reach out to family members who find themselves serving as full-time supporters or caregivers. WWP offers Family Support Retreats and encourages them to check out restorewarriors.org as a resource for PTSD and mental health information.
We understand these loved ones need a break now and then, and our Family Support Retreat weekends provide time for them to rest and reflect in a supportive environment of peers. Sharing strategies for coping and overcoming obstacles is a valuable part of our retreats. And a feeling of fellowship reminds family members they are not alone.
