Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) announced a new grant in support of Vets’ Community Connections (VCC) – an organization that helps veterans, military, and their families successfully integrate into their communities. This grant will help expand their local networks.

Through established networks in San Diego County, CA, Maricopa County (Phoenix), AZ, and St Joseph County (South Bend), IN., this $200,000 grant will support connecting injured veterans and their families to local and national resources for veteran assistance with employment, education, finances, health, recreation and wellness. 

"Strong, resilient communities provide the best support systems for warriors and families as they transition into civilian life and recover from the wounds of war," said WWP CEO Lt. Gen. (Ret.) Mike Linnington. "Through the work of Vets' Community Connections, we're helping military families connect with resources, local residents, organizations, and services in their communities to help them grow stronger and more resilient."

"Vets' Community Connections offers a channel for many more individuals, businesses and organizations to do more for than say 'thanks for your service,'" said Kari McDonough, President and Co-Founder of Vets' Community Connections. "We are proud to work with Wounded Warrior Project to connect veterans to a whole host of resources that they can use to build a thriving life in their community."
