20 YEARS OF MAKING AN IMPACT


Over the last two decades, Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) has been honored to serve more than 240,000 post-9/11 veterans and family members. Our direct programs provide connection, mental health and wellness treatment, physical health services, financial wellness assistance, and long-term support for the critically wounded.

Who We Are


Since 2003, WWP has been committed to helping injured veterans achieve their highest ambitions. Today, our dedication and ability to serve wounded warriors and their families are stronger than ever before.

The journey does not end for our nation’s bravest the day their uniforms come off for the last time. Approximately 1.6 million post-9/11 veterans have reported a service-connected injury, meaning the population of warriors eligible for our programs and services is vast and varied.

Through our direct programs and services, advocacy efforts, and collaboration with best-in practice veteran and military organizations, WWP changes — and saves — the lives of millions of injured veterans and their families — all at no cost to them.

How We Serve


We fulfill our mission in three distinct ways:

PROVIDE direct programs and services to warriors and their families.

ADVOCATE for injured service members and their families in Washington, DC.

COLLABORATE with other military and veteran support organizations to amplify our efforts.

Direct Programs

Thanks to our generous supporters, WWP was able to make an impact in the lives of warriors and their families in the 2023 fiscal year through the following programs. Read more about the impact2 below.
