Program areas at Semper Fi Fund

The family support program provides direct financial assistance and vital programming during hospitalization and recovery. This assistance covers: daily living expenses so the family can focus on recovery rather than on financial burdens; support once they return home, including critical items such as adaptive homes, adaptive cars and specialized wheelchairs; and support, including caregiver retreats and kids programs, providing services to the entire family in their journey to recovery. In fiscal year 2019, we provided family support grants to 5,450 recipients.

The transition program makes it easier for service members and veterans to thrive beyond injury to recovery. Educational and career assistance provides them with the tools and skills to successfully reconnect with their communities and build new, productive lives. Transition assistance includes peer mentoring and unit reunions to connect them with fellow service members and veterans and provide the resources needed to succeed in the next phase of their life. In fiscal year 2019, we provided transition grants to 1,000 service members and veterans.

The integrative wellness program provides tools to improve body, mind, and spirit. The program applies a holistic approach to wellness. Through innovative technologies such as neurofeedback and specialized equipment, post traumatic growth videos, 'recovery through sport' adaptive sports program, jinx mccain horsemanship program, and therapeutic arts, we foster healing in a powerful and sustaining way for overall health and wellbeing. In fiscal year 2019, we provided wellness grants to 2,450 service members, veterans and their families.
