Our mission is to provide support to the families of those who have been wounded, injured, or killed during combat operations. The families of our casualties suffer in many ways: some financially, some psychologically.
Wounded Warriors Family Support is an Omaha-based nonprofit whose mission is to improve the quality of life for the families of our combat wounded. Our organization supports combat-wounded veterans and their families, even after physical needs are met, to help them heal, recover, and reconnect.Wounded Warriors Family Support provides the following services, locally and nationally, free of charge to combat-wounded veterans and their families:
Caregiver Respite Services to ensure that family members who are thrust into caregiver roles are provided with the support they need to keep their families intact while keeping themselves healthy.
Family Programs that give wounded veterans a chance to heal and reconnect with their loved ones in a peaceful, stress-free environment, strengthening the bonds of their families and making lasting memories.
Veterans Training, in partnership with UAW-Ford, to give military veterans opportunities to train for and pursue careers in welding.
Mobility is Freedom, a program that provides grants to qualified combat-wounded veterans for the purchase of Ford vehicles adapted to suit their unique needs.
Wounded Warriors Family Support has earned CharityNavigator.org’s highest four-star rating. Serving combat-wounded veterans in Nebraska and across the country, Wounded Warriors Family Support has blossomed into a national organization from humble beginnings as a simple pass-the-hat campaign benefitting U.S. soldiers at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center in Germany, the first stop for wounded military personnel from Iraq and Afghanistan before returning home.
