The Quality of Life Foundation strives to make positive differences in peoples’ lives today that will continue far into the future. In March 2010, the Quality of Life Foundation launched the Wounded Veteran Family Care Program to support families who provide a substantial amount of care giving to a wounded, injured or ill veteran. Our client families include veterans with combat and non-combat-related traumatic brain injuries; PTSD, stroke; spinal cord injuries; multiple amputations; and other poly-trauma injuries. The Quality of Life Foundation focuses on the whole family because often, care giving responsibilities, coupled with financial strain, result in family members forgoing their own quality of life needs. We address quality of life needs through local and national resources, or through the outright purchase of goods/services. Learn more at http://qolfoundation.org.
