NCC’s services are provided in the individual’s home or community and are functionally based. This translates to real-life skill development and an improved quality of life.
NCC is an independent contractor with the Wounded Warrior Project’s Independence Program ( https://www.woundedwarriorproject.org/programs/independence ) and we work to provide assistance to warriors throughout the United States. The Independence Program helps warrior’s live life to the fullest, on their own terms. It is designed for warriors who rely on their families because of moderate-to-severe traumatic brain injury, spinal-cord injury, or other neurological conditions. In addition, the warrior’s cognitive and/or physical challenges limit their opportunities to access resources and activities in their own community. The Independence Program is a team effort, bringing together the warrior, family, treatment team, and community support professionals to establish goals and develop a personal plan for each warrior. It’s designed as a comprehensive long-term partnership intended to adapt to the warrior’s ever-changing needs. The Independence Program provides support and training for involvement in meaningful activities, including social and recreational, wellness, volunteer work, education, and other life skills.
NCC works with agencies throughout the country to provide community support services to warriors in order to assist with pursuing their goals in an effort to maximize their independence and quality of life.
