Wounded Warrior Project. 10 Years: a decade of service - a lifetime of commitment

Independence Program and Long-Term Support Trust

INDEPENDENCE PROGRAM

The Independence Program helps warriors live life to the fullest, on their own terms. It is designed for warriors who rely on their families and/or caregivers because of moderate to severe brain injury, spinal-cord injury, or other neurological conditions. In addition, the warrior’s cognitive or physical challenges limit their opportunities to access resources and activities in their own community.

The Independence Program is a team effort, bringing together the warrior and his or her full support team while creating an individualized plan for each warrior — focusing on goals that provide a future with purpose at no cost to the warrior and his or her support team. It’s designed as a comprehensive long-term partnership intended to adapt to the warrior’s ever-changing needs.

The Independence Program provides support and training for involvement in meaningful activities, including social and recreational, wellness, volunteer work, education, and other living skills.

LONG-TERM SUPPORT TRUST

The Long-Term Support Trust was developed to ensure services including life-skills training, home care, transportation, and additional resources remain available to the severely wounded who, upon the loss of their caregiver, is at risk for institutionalization. Through the Trust, resources will be available for all warriors enrolled to supplement services and entitled benefits. To assure long-term viability of financial resources, an advisory panel for each warrior enrolled, which will include the warrior or warrior representative, will evaluate all distribution requests for resources needed.

The goal is to empower each warrior to live independently as possible, with the highest quality of life and the finest, most compassionate care. The funding is paid directly to providers and covers services such as:

  • Case Management
  • Life-Skills Training
  • Home Care
  • Transportation
  • Respite Care
  • Education and Training
  • Residential Program
