Vets Helping Vets

Cultivating leaders to champion the initiative for healthy veteran connections within their local communities.

What is


LWFI is devoted to building genuine communities for veterans and their families through peer-to-peer  interactions.

The heart of the LWFI is found not in a place but in a way of living that empowers people to change.  The broken foundations of our fast-paced and fragmented society have left many people lost and alone often struggling with the darkness of their minds in isolation.  It is our belief that we were not created to be alone — either physically or emotionally. We simply journey along beside the hurting and allow them to process their life.  Through pastoral counseling, peer support, and community we look to God for strength and walk together toward freedom.

Veterans Across America

Join us as we embark on a mission to help veterans across America. This year LWFI will be traveling from coast-to-coast goal of spreading the word and growing the community. In preparation for this we will be hosting a number of events and opportunities for everyone to get involved.

Thank you to our Veterans Across America Spotlight Sponsors!
