WHAT WE OFFER

Quality of care for wounded warriors remains a priority for Air Force leadership. The Air Force has and continues to honor the sacrifices of wounded Airmen, and their families and or caregivers by providing the best medical and non-medical professional support throughout their recovery process. Additionally, the Air Force works with each wounded Airman to provide a thorough analysis of opportunities and benefits that are available to medically retired and separated combat veterans. 

Every month, the AF determines approximately 106 Airmen are seriously wounded, ill or injured, and require personalized care and support through enrollment in the Wounded Warrior Program. Current total active case management enrollment is at more than 3,200 Airmen, with support provided to an additional 5,000 veterans as needed. 

HOW IT IS ACHIEVED

The Warrior Care Division at AFPC is charged with providing non-medical care management and personalized support to AF Wounded Warrior. This support is provided through six annually-offered regional Warrior CARE Events integrating all support programs into one platform to strengthen mental, physical, spiritual and social well-being of enrolled Wounded Warriors and Caregivers. “CARE” represents four AFW2 support programs: Caregiver Support, Adaptive Sports and Ambassador Workshop, Recovering Airman Mentorship Program and Resiliency Programming, and Empowerment in Transition. 

Other holistic activities may include:

Art Program – “Painting with a Purpose”

Music Program – “Rock to Recovery”

Wellness – “Combat to Comedy”

Spiritual Wellness

Recover Services including Massage Therapy and Chiropractor assistance​ 

CAREGIVER SUPPORT

This provides personalized support to caregivers who are caring for a wounded, ill or injured warriors. Caregiver focused support is integrated into the wounded warrior’s comprehensive recovery plans. Here, caregivers can expect to connect with other caregivers to form a support network where they can share their experiences, wisdom and skills. Attendees are armed with successful coping tools to assist with managing stress, communicate more effectively, take care of their own health and manage demanding situations. 

AMBASSADOR WORKSHOP

The Ambassador Workshop is designed to help Warriors and Caregivers tell their stories of recovery and resiliency.   

RECOVERING AIRMAN MENTORSHIP PROGRAM (RAMP)

RAMP workshops develop mentors and connects them with other warriors to promote and encourage healing. During the event, trained mentors are integrated into teams of 15-20 warriors and shadow a staff lead to provide first-hand opportunity to experience mentorship role before being assigned as a peer mentor. 

RESILIENCY PROGRAMMING

Resiliency programming is always a part of CARE event agendas and may include spiritual, art, music, yoga, journaling, photography and comedy sessions. 

EMPOWERMENT IN TRANSITION

The Empowerment in Transition Workshop hones employment skills in a small class setting with a personalized approach which works extremely well with this unique population.

VIRTUAL WORKSHOPS

We will also be offering workshops for those wounded warriors outside of the local area in our first ever blended event. You will join us via Zoom for the same level of care and connection as those attending in-person.
