WE ARE VIRGINIA VETERANS ON CAMPUS – The Virginia Wounded Warrior Program
The Virginia Wounded Warrior Program (VWWP) is a legislatively mandated program operated by the Virginia Department of Veterans Services in cooperation with the Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services and the Department of Rehabilitative Services. It was established in 2008 in response to the growing need to improve and expand services to our nation’s veterans and their family members whose lives have been touched by stress-related injuries or traumatic brain injury.
Our statewide program serves veterans of an era who are Virginia residents; members of the Virginia National Guard and Armed Forces Reserves not in active federal service; and family members of those veterans and service members. Through an extensive network of local, federal and state partnerships, the VWWP can assist you in getting the answers you need regarding psychological health and traumatic brain injury.
The Virginia Wounded Warrior Program is dedicated to helping you build resilience and cope with the challenges posed from a stress-related injury or traumatic brain injury. Our team is focused on helping you feel like you again and to assist you and your family move forward with your lives. We provide services through five regional consortia of community services boards, brain injury service providers, and other public and private service providers who offer services across the Commonwealth.
Our goal is to make it easier for you and your family to find and get help. Support services are available both online and in person at local offices. We are also a proud partner of the Defense Centers of Excellence for Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury Real Warriors Campaign, www.realwarriors.net and encourage you to visit their website.
Our newest campaign, “We are Virginia Veterans,” is targeted to reach all eras of veterans and their family members who may benefit from our program and draw strength from our Virginia communities. Virginia is home to approximately 820,000 veterans; that means that one of every ten citizens is a veteran.
