NWTF and Hope For The Warriors® Create New Partnership to Support Wounded Service Members
The National Wild Turkey Federation and Hope For The Warriors® are excited to announce a new partnership to provide hunting opportunities for wounded service members, families and families of the fallen.
Hope For The Warriors® created the Outdoor Adventures Program in 2010 to provide adaptive opportunities for wounded heroes to participate in sporting activities in the great outdoors. In 2012, the organization recognized the therapeutic benefits for the family members and expanded the program to include spouses and children of wounded and fallen service members.
The partnership with the NWTF will give Hope For The Warriors® access to hunting opportunities throughout the country, allowing for a greater reach of service members and families supported through the program.
“We have witnessed firsthand the restoring power of our Outdoor Adventures Program,” Robin Kelleher, Hope For The Warriors® President said. “Partnering with the NWTF will help us provide more opportunities to combat-wounded service members and their families, using the great outdoors to support their rehabilitation and recovery.”
“We’re thrilled to help our veterans by partnering with Hope For The Warriors®,”

The NWTF is the leader in upland wildlife habitat conservation in North America. A nonprofit organization founded in 1973, the NWTF and its volunteers work closely with state, federal and provincial wildlife agencies and other partners to conserve the wild turkey and other upland wildlife and to preserve our hunting heritage.
Through these dynamic partnerships, the NWTF and its members helped restore wild turkey populations throughout North America. The NWTF has conserved and improved 17 million acres of essential wildlife habitat with its partners by raising and investing $372 million. Habitat projects that help wild turkeys also improve habitat for deer, quail, rabbits, songbirds and many other species in our fields and forests.
