RALEIGH, N.C., Sept. 16, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Camp Corral, a leading provider of support and enrichment opportunities for the children of this nation's wounded, ill and fallen military heroes, announces Wounded Warriors Family Support (WWFS), a nonprofit supporting the families of those who have been wounded, injured or killed during combat, as an official sponsor of its year-round resilience programming, to include Summer Camp and Family Camp Retreats. With a shared focus on providing respite to those who care for wounded and ill service members, the nonprofits will collaborate to ensure their programs are available to as many families as possible.
"Communities often do not consider the heightened challenges that military children face on a daily basis, particularly those who have stepped up to be a caregiver for an ill or wounded parent," said Lori Noonan, Chief Operating Officer at Camp Corral. "Partnering with WWFS will act as a force multiplier to ensure families receive the dedicated support they have earned through their service and sacrifice to our country."
Camp Corral's programs are designed to provide respite, build peer-support connections, strengthen self-confidence, and reinforce coping skills for the children of wounded warriors making the non-profit a natural focus of support for WWFS due to its concentration on providing support to combat-wounded warriors, their caregivers, and family members.
"It's an honor and privilege to join forces with Camp Corral to expand Wounded Warriors Family Support's programs through outdoor adventures and resilience programming for the children and families of our nation's veterans and caregivers," said Kate McCauley, CEO & President at WWFS. "We believe that together we can offer these families an opportunity to rest and strengthen their ability to thrive."
