What We Do

“Sometimes no matter how well you prepare yourself, life decides to throw a few extra lemons your way. It was one after another, unexpected hurricane expenses, bills piling up, we couldn’t keep up. I expressed my concern with Sarah & Andrea and in just a few emails things were taken care of. The bills we worried about were paid, expenses for the babies including a brand new crib we’re ordered. Andrea handled everything so smoothly. It was like a heavy burden has been lifted. All I had to do was focus on my newborn, I can’t express just how much

I would do it again.. and again”   The family of an Air National Guardsman came to the Wounded Veteran Family Care Program facing challenges as a result of the veteran’s debilitating illness from his burn pit exposure in Iraq in 2005.

Doing It Alone, With a Little Help

    Doing It Alone, With a Little Help   Our military caregivers and their families are independent.  After enduring multiple deployments, military families are accustomed to getting things done on their own. They have mastered the art of navigating difficult situations, and there are few challenges that they are not able to overcome. For many, our caregivers are facing their challenges alone. Caregivers come to Quality of Life Foundation for support after years of trying to map out a new normal in the aftermath of a loved one’s traumatic wound, injury, or illness. Our families are navigating the maze

How many organizations truly interpret the identified “desires” of a Caregiver, as perhaps, a true “need” for that Caregivers emotional or psychological well-being? Through the Wounded Veteran Family Care Program, we work to help Caregivers improve their quality of life, as the Caregiver defines quality, based on the Caregivers definition of their needs, to help them feel complete.

For this caregiver family, it is the little things that can make life that much easier and more worthwhile. The caregiver family of 4 includes the veteran, his spouse and
