Hearts of Valor Retreat 2018

Caregiver Support

Hearts of Valor is a network of people caring for wounded, ill or injured service members and veterans, created and maintained by Operation Homefront. Operation Homefront seeks to support these caregivers in their own journeys of healing by facilitating online groups that provide social connection to other caregivers in similar situations, fostering support groups by location to encourage resource sharing and friendships, and sponsoring annual retreats to provide education on relevant issues.

ELIGIBILITY

All members of the Hearts of Valor program must meet the following criteria:

  • Must be a caregiver of a wounded, ill, or injured service member or veteran
  • The service member or veteran must have time served after 9/11/2001
  • The service member or veteran’s wound, illness, or injury occurred after 9/11/2001
  • The caregiver must provide support documentation that details time in service and wounds, illnesses, or injuries

MEMBER BENEFITS

Each year, Hearts of Valor hosts educational and respite retreats across the United States. The retreats provide caregivers with opportunities to share their stories, network, and connect with other caregivers who are in similar situations. They are offered at no cost to members of the program.

  • Support groups

Hearts of Valor hosts in-person support groups in many locations around the United States.
