Warrior Canine Connection Receives $10,000 Grant from Veterans Help Group

Funding to Support WCC’s Mission Based Trauma Recovery Training Program

BOYDS, Md., May 4, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Veterans Help Group (VHG) has generously donated $10,000 to Warrior Canine Connection (WCC) to help support placement of skilled service dogs with wounded Veterans, and the organization’s unique Mission Based Trauma Recovery (MBTR) program. The MBTR program enlists Service Members and Veterans to help train service dogs for fellow Warriors as part of their own treatment for invisible wounds of war.

“Veterans Help Group is a fantastic organization that is making a difference in the lives of Veterans,” said Rick Yount, founder and executive director, Warrior Canine Connection. “VHG is 100% dedicated to providing assistance, care and resources to our nation’s Veterans, and we are immensely thankful for their support.”

WCC’s MBTR program teaches Veterans how to work with service dogs in training, which fulfills a time-honored military tradition of Warriors helping Warriors. In doing so, the Veteran can also benefit from skills development in communication, confidence building, accountability, emotional regulation and patience to promote an act of service while receiving a therapeutic benefit.

“Warrior Canine is one of those charities that brings tears to your eyes because of how passionate their work is,” said Joe Waring, Board Member for Veterans Help Group. “We are privileged to help them serve other Veterans.”

Veterans Help Group was founded more than 15 years ago to advocate for disabled Veterans in securing their disability benefits.
