Project New Hope - North America
Project New Hope was founded by caring individuals who understand that for a combat veteran, and their family, wartime doesn’t end the day that soldier comes home. The effects of combat service are often felt throughout a soldier’s entire lifetime, and can have an impact on each family member as well, often in ways that may be quite subtle, or hidden from view. We realize the process of healing and understanding is a vital component to life success after the war. Each family member will deal with what has happened in their own way. Returning soldiers face the challenge of transition from war footing, to civilian home life. Often, it can seem as though they’re in it alone, as though people expect them to pick up where they’d been, as though nothing had changed during their time away. Spouses may struggle with changes in the home, first with their soldier gone, and then, to another set of changes after the return. Children may lack the maturity to independently adjust to the absence of a parent, their return, and the transitions which must take place. No matter which era a soldier served in – Korea, Vietnam, The Gulf War, Iraq, Afghanistan – it doesn’t matter at Project New Hope. All U.S. wartime service veterans and their families are welcome. There is no charge associated with Project New Hope, financial concerns will never prevent us from offering our services to soldiers and their families.
