"To Fill the Gaps..."

The Yellow Ribbon Fund provides the programs that make daily life more manageable for the wounded and their family caregivers.

The YRF provides the programs that make daily life more manageable for the wounded and their family caregivers. For amputees, days in the hospital can stretch into many months, and loved ones often cannot afford to stay by their side.

 

Each year, YRF provides families of the wounded with hotel rooms and apartments (5,800 nights), cab rides to and from the hospital (3,000), therapeutic massages to ease stress (480), and a wide range of social events, from pool days to movie nights (over 100). In 2012, YRF completed a playground and barbecue area at Walter Reed, designed to give military families a welcoming space just steps from the hospital.

 

One-on-one mentoring for service members and their families on future employment and college admission are designed to help them reintegrate into civilian life. The caregiver program provides retreats and pampering for those care givers providing long term care for their military spouse. The Ambassador program reaches out to veterans after they've returned home and makes one final check to make sure the gaps that exist still get filled.  A nationwide team of volunteer ambassadors help provide legal support, job placemen and financial counseling.

 

Finally,  a team of veteran athlete ambassadors are there to help motivate and guide those future adapative athletes into community based fitness. As wounded veterans themselves, they know just how important a tool fitness can truly be.  

 

Serving over 1,000 soldiers and families annually, YRF proves how mighty even small acts can be.
