The Independence Program is designed for warriors who rely on their family or caregivers as a result of moderate-to-severe brain injury, spinal-cord injury, or other neurological conditions. The Independence Program is a team effort, bringing together the warrior, family or caregiver, treatment team, and community support professionals to establish goals and a personalized plan. The result is a comprehensive, long-term partnership that adapts to the ever-changing needs of Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) Alumni.
The Long-Term Support Trust is an additional safety net designed to ensure the most severely wounded veterans are empowered to live independently with the highest quality of life and finest, most compassionate care possible when their caregiver can no longer provide the assistance they need. In some cases, warriors face the risk of institutionalization and we can’t let that happen.
