Support Our Air Force Caregivers During National Family Caregivers Month!
AFA's Wounded Airman Program ensures that our Air Force brothers and sisters who have given so much to our great country will always be taken care of by their Air Force family.
Our support is more critical now than ever! In addition, due to the cancellation of large events because of the pandemic, our wounded Airmen are unable to continue with their in-person recovery programs that address specific physical rehabilitation and well-being goals!
In order to maintain this crucial support and to continue to boost the morale of our Air Force Wounded Warriors and their Air Force Caregivers in challenging times, it’s imperative that AFA’s Wounded Airman Program pivot support to meet its ongoing needs and we have done so by establishing new virtual therapeutic events versus the in-person Warrior CARE Events traditionally provided.
That said, our Wounded Airman Program is excited to kick off a new event series, Mission Arts. In partnership with Mission Warriors Art Instructors, Mission Arts will provide virtual healing and arts events to wounded Airmen and their families, keeping them connected, cared for, and supported through the art disciplines of meditation, paint pouring, writing, comedy and improv wellness workshops.
A primary goal of the Mission Arts program will be to strengthen and build resilience among our Air Force Family and their Caregivers, helping them endure hardship and cope with the additional stress brought on by COVID-19. In addition, we will host special Caregiver focused virtual events for our Air Force Caregivers to feel supported as they take care of their wounded hero for 24 hours a day, oftentimes with little to no breaks and under quarantine.
