WWFS has been a Godsend to my family. I was introduced the organization from Hearts of Valor when I was invited to attend a conference to learn more about my husbands illnesses and how to better take care of myself. WWFS has changed my life. After 3 years of caring for my husband who requires more than 40 hours of care weekly, with no break, I was beginning to suffer from caregiver burnout. WWFS provides me regularly scheduled respite care. The VA pushes the necessity of respite care as part of self-care in their Caregiver training and certification but never advises on how to obtain it. I called various organizations that could care for my husband so I could get a break here and there especially over the last year and honestly could not afford any of their rates. They all charged double what the VA covers with the caregiver stipend. Being a woman with so many demands already caring for my husband, I can't call a hundred places to find one that fit's in my budet. WWFS worked diligently to meet every one of the character traits and qualities to find a caregiver that would be necessary to match the needs of my husband and children. They were able to find someone that my husband is comfortable with and that my children feel loved, understood and encouraged by. WWFS found someone that could come in and feel like family. WWFS is meeting a huge and what I find neglected need for Veterans. What they do is really lifesaving. It is saving marriages which is potentially saving the lives of our heroes by offering us women who love, respect and honor our husbands enough to stand by their sides through every trial room to breathe. I can't thank them enough.

But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
Isaiah 40:31
