Yes. Raising awareness is critical so that warriors and family members who need help know where they can turn. In addition, it is important to educate the public about the needs of this generation of wounded veterans.
WWP’s outreach initiatives are designed to educate injured service members about the free programs available to them through WWP, encourage the public to refer veterans to the organization, and spread awareness around the issues facing veterans and their families. WWP performs outreach in several ways and WWP accounts for these efforts following IRS and accounting guidelines.
