Navy Wounded Warrior — Safe Harbor
Navy Wounded Warrior — Safe Harbor is the Navy’s sole organization for coordinating the non-medical care of seriously wounded, ill and injured sailors and Coast Guardsmen, and providing resources and support to their families and caregivers. The program provides individually tailored assistance designed to optimize the success of the wounded warriors’ recovery, rehabilitation and reintegration activities. NWW helps sailors and Coast Guardsmen return to duty, and, when that’s not possible, the program works collaboratively with federal agencies and state and local organizations to ease wounded warriors back into their communities.
Resources includes assistance with comprehensive recovery plans; adaptive sports and reconditioning; pay and personnel issues; invitational travel orders; lodging and housing adaptation; child and youth care; transportation needs; education benefits and training; employment opportunities; respite care; transition assistance and more.
Sailors and Coast Guardsmen may self-refer to the program or be referred by family, command leadership or medical providers. For more information, go to www.navymwrnavalstationnorfolk.com and select “Navy Wounded Warrior — Safe Harbor” from the “Support Services” drop-down menu.
