Program areas at Helping a Hero Org

The Wounded Hero Home Program is the signature program for severely wounded warriors injured while supporting the Global War on Terror. Traditionally, homes are built in master-planned communities with the developer and builder donating time and materials toward the construction of the house, in addition to their paid services. Helping a donates cash funds and oversees the project.The veteran is required to take out a minimum $50,000 mortgage on the home plus contribute the proceeds of their VA specially adapted housing grant for which most of the veterans selected for this program are eligible.

The Organization conducts a groundbreaking ceremony before the constructionof a new home for the wounded warrior. The ceremony allows the Organization to introduce the wounded warrior and family to the community, educate the community about the needs of the wounded warrior, educate other businesses about the opportunity for giving back to wounded warriors, and honor the wounded warrior for his or her service.The Organization has a welcome home ceremony when the home is completed and the wounded hero is ready to assume ownership and move in. The ceremony allows the Organization to thank all the vendors who have donated time or products to the home as well as to educate the community about the adaptation needs that this wounded hero has as a result of his or her permanent injuries. The "Welcome Home" ceremony is a key factor for the veteran's assimilation into the community.

Marriage Retreats, Caregiver Programs, Financial Education --The wounded heroes and their families often encounter marital challenges as they transition from the military back into civilian life. The divorce rate is an average of 85% amoung the most severely wounded. The Organization is committed to equipping these veterans and spouses enhance their communication skills and work through crisis issues so that they can rebuild their marriages, based on the new normal they now face. Many families have participated in the retreats, webinars, and crisis communication support.
