Navy Wounded Warrior – Safe Harbor provides a wide range of support services to wounded warriors recovering from serious illness or injury – beginning at bedside and continuing throughout the rest of their lives.
Wounded warriors enrolled in Navy Wounded Warrior – Safe Harbor are assigned a regional non-medical care management team that helps develop a Comprehensive Recovery Plan (CRP). The CRP identifies short- and long-term recovery goals and lists strategies to achieve them.
Navy Wounded Warrior – Safe Harbor helps Sailors and Coast Guardsmen return to duty. When that’s not possible, the program works collaboratively with federal agencies, including the Department of Veterans Affairs and the Department of Labor, as well as state and local organizations, to ensure successful reintegration of service members back into their communities.
