Welcome! Our Wounded Veteran Family Care Program (WVFCP) is designed to help the silent support team of seriously wounded, ill, or injured veterans – caregivers who provide daily substantial care and minor children in the home. If that sounds like you or someone you know, read on!
Who We Serve
The majority of the caregivers eligible for our program are enrolled in the VA Caregiver Support Program. If you have an application or appeal in progress or you meet the standards to be considered a caregiver we can discuss some options.
What We Do
Our goal is to reduce caregiver stress and improve the quality of life in the household. We don’t have a set list or menu of resources or programs, but rather respond to what you tell us would be most helpful in your home. Historically, we’ve helped with things like extracurricular activities for kiddos, housecleaning or home organization, craft or other hobby equipment, and VA advocacy, including advocacy with the VA Caregiver Support Program
You fill out the request for assistance page, and we reach out to you to set up a time to get to know you and your family. Following that conversation, we’ll request the required documents listed on this page from you to get you enrolled.
Once we receive those, you’ll be assigned a Family Support Coordinator and we’ll get started making a plan to reduce stress and improve your quality of life!
For veteran families who need help, but do not provide full-time care for a veteran at home, please accept our sincere appreciation for your family’s service and sacrifice.
While your family is not eligible for our WVFCP, there are hundreds of organizations with specific assistance programs for which you may be eligible. We have provided links to two searchable databases of organizations that offer a variety of assistance designed to meet the needs of wounded, ill, or injured veterans and their families. These databases are searchable by a number of different criteria, to include zip code and type of assistance needed. One is the Defense Health Agency Recovery Coordination Program Caregiver Resource Directory administered via a partnership of three Federal Government Agencies, the Departments of Defense, Labor and Veterans Affairs and the other is the Hidden Heroes Caregiver Directory published by the Elizabeth Dole Foundation.
If your online search does not result in a good match for your needs, please contact us so we can take a more hands on approach to finding an organization with a program that meets your needs.
