Warriors Helping Warriors news and latest updates.
We have so many accomplishments to celebrate along with exciting projects in the near future.
Our work here at Warriors Helping Warriors is so rewarding . Since we have opened our doors we have helped over 75 veterans obtain needed services and have housed more than 50 homeless veterans. This is so exciting. When these veterans complete our program they gain so much more than a temporary home. They receive counseling, resume building skills, connections to employment, life skills and so much more. These heroes are able to leave the program with the skills they need to thrive. Our gratitude to all of those who make it possible to reach those in need is endless. In February we kicked off our annual campaign and we are nearly a quarter of the way to our goal. Thank you so much to those who have helped us get to where we are! If you have not had an opportunity to donate to the campaign, you can find informational in the below link.
In the coming months we will be adding an ADA bedroom and bathroom to the Brian Conley Veterans Resiliency Center. This addition will allow us to serve those with physical disabilities. A huge thank you to the Head of Christiana Presbyterian Church. Their generous donation of $10,000 will be used to fund a portion of the construction cost associated with the addition. Read more.

We are proud to celebrate Jennifer Montgomery, our case manager here at Warriors Helping Warriors. The background and skills that she brings to the organization along with her desire to help those in need is a great asset to the organization.
Jennifer received an associated degree in human services in 2018 and is completing a bachelor's in social work degree this May 2021. She will be moving right into the Master of Social Work program with an expected graduation date of May 2022. She comes to us with over 15 years' experience in the nursing field where she worked closely with patients experiencing mental health and behavioral issues. Currently serving in the human service field with expertise in working in emergency services with the homeless population, mental health and substance use. At WHW, she meets with veterans to develop the goals they would like to work on while at WHW. Their goals have a focus on housing and are measurable and specific. Weekly meetings are held to discuss their treatment plan and any issues they may have. Discussion topics are financial literacy, assisting the veterans with housing and employment searches, resume development, interview skill and completing job applications. Jen also assists the veterans with navigating the VA system such as connecting with needed resources for service connection claims, discharge upgrades, or connecting to medical or mental health benefits. In addition she works with community resources to connect veteran to services if they do not qualify for VA services.
