Air Force Wounded Warrior (AFW2) Program
This Community Partnership page is part of an intentional effort to engage our Airmen and those who support them with resources in their geographic area, regardless of AFW2 program status. As a community, our effort should be to meet them where they are, with what they need in the way of support, access, or advocacy.
By creating solid relationships with outside organizations who support the military, veteran, and caregiver populations across the United States and abroad, we will edify and empower our people to succeed and thrive in their communities.
We believe in strong community connections and the power of positive relationships to improve outcomes during times of change. Whether you are transitioning out of the military, to a new assignment, or perhaps simply looking to improve your access to connections in your current location, there are resources designed to help you find the support and engagement you need.
The internet is a big place, and for many, the results from a typical on-line search engine can be overwhelming when searching for specific points of interest or assistance. The resources below are collections of information designed to help concentrate your efforts when looking to connect within a community or seek supportive services.
National Resource Directory
The National Resource Directory (NRD) is a resource website that connects wounded warriors, service members, veterans, their families, and caregivers to programs and services that support them. It provides access to services and resources at the national, state and local levels to support recovery, rehabilitation and community reintegration. Visitors can find information on a variety of topics that supply an abundance of vetted resources. For help finding resources on the site, visit the “How to Use this Site” section of the NRD.
