  2. 2. Veteran Support Provided at Inspiring Alliance <ul><li> The purpose of our Inspiring Alliance Wounded Warrior Program is to provide one-to-one support to soldiers who sustained combat injuries while serving in the Operation Endearing Freedom or Operation Iraqi Freedom occupation. We coordinate support in areas to meet medical needs, housing adaptation to coincide with any related disabilities sustained, emergency financial crisis, temporary living assistance, career counseling/job placement, educational benefits and legal support. Our focus is to &quot;inspire&quot; each of our clients to think about what they can achieve in life instead of focusing on what they accomplished in the past. We are champions for conquering life challenges, and we stand ready to provide whatever programs necessary to help our soldiers realize what they are capable of today! </li></ul><ul><li>Inspiring Alliance Wounded Warrior Program differs from other organizations in that we remain with a soldier throughout his or her convalescence period, and we provide face-to-face service counseling whenever possible in that soldier’s hometown. Once a soldier reaches a point where he (she) is interested in career objectives again, we also assist in that difficult task of making the transition from military to civilian life. Our organization offers career assessment and counseling, and direct-placement positions with some firms. In addition, we have partnered with more than 150 employers across the country who are pro-active in hiring veterans. </li></ul><ul><li>Inspiring Alliance acts as an ambassador for more 500 programs that support thousands of volunteers across the country who have a sense of compassion for what these brave men and women must endure to continue a life as close to what they had previous to their combat-related injuries. We focus on bridging the gap between the traumatic transition facing our Wounded Warrior and a life balance that includes whatever services required to meet that veteran's rehabilitation needs to provide the greatest level of freedom and independence possible for that individual. </li></ul>
