Operation, Helping Hands 
James A. Haley VA Hospital

Empowering Military Families

Assistance for active duty military patients & families

The Program:

Since the beginning of Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom, the James A. Haley Veterans' Hospital has had a marked increase in the number of wounded and injured active duty members referred for treatment. Their Spinal Cord Injury and Comprehensive Rehabilitation Units have treated some of the most severely injured service members who have been in combat in these operations. The average stay for the injured is 45 days. Many of the families travel from all over the country and must provide for themselves while staying here in the Tampa Bay area.

You are welcome to join us on the third Thursday of each month.  Contact us through the link below for more information.
