JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Nov. 20, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) announced extended hours of operation for its Resource Center. The new hours of operation for the national toll-free telephone and email support service are Monday – Friday, 9 am to 9 pm ET.
In many instances, the Resource Center is the first point of interaction between a veteran and WWP. Veterans and spouses can call the Resource Center to register for services; learn about different programs such as Warriors to Work® veteran career counseling, Project Odyssey®, and Warrior Care Network®; manage VA or Department of Defense benefits claims; or learn how to connect with other warriors within a specific community.
"We are very excited to expand our hours of operation in order to provide the highest level of support to wounded veterans across the country," said Resource Center Director Sally Bramston.
The Resource Center can also refer veterans to services not offered by WWP, but within their local community. These include acquiring a service dog or general legal services.
WWP is committed to helping injured veterans achieve their highest ambition. When they're ready to start their next mission, WWP stands ready to serve. Warriors never pay a penny for WWP programs – because they paid their dues on the battlefield. WWP's free services in mental health, career counseling, and long-term rehabilitative care change lives.
The journey continues until every injured veteran who was once the warrior being carried off the battlefield is empowered to become the warrior who carries others, thus embodying the WWP logo. At WWP, this is known as "living the logo." For warriors, the logo is an undeniable symbol that reminds them of their resilience – and their passion for continued service.
