Sailors and Coast Guardsman may self-refer to the program or be referred by family members, command leadership or medical providers. Navy Safe Harbor Foundation aims to ensure that every service member is given an opportunity for full recovery. Navy Wounded Warrior - Safe Harbor coordinates the non-medical care of seriously wounded, ill and injured Sailors and Coast Guardsmen, and provides resources and support to their families. The program is headquartered in Washington, D.C., and Non-medical Care Managers are located at Military Treatment Facilities and VA Polytrauma Centers throughout the continental United States. The program’s goal is to return Sailors and Coast Guardsmen to duty and, when that’s not possible, to work collaboratively with federal agencies, and state and local organizations to ease them back into their communities.Through proactive leadership, NWW offers individually-tailored assistance to ensure enrollees’ successful recovery, rehabilitation and reintegration. Enrollment in the program is available to service members wounded in combat, as well as to those diagnosed with a serious illness or injured in shipboard, training and liberty accidents. Enrollment lasts a lifetime.

The Navy Wounded Warrior – Safe Harbor Anchor Program is a voluntary program for wounded warriors to receive support on a personal level while adjusting to civilian life and living with a disability. The Anchor Program connects sponsors (active-duty or retired Navy or Coast Guard personnel) to wounded warriors upon their retirement from military service. They share local knowledge and lend emotional support while the wounded warrior integrates back into the community. It is not within the Anchor Program sponsors' jurisdiction to provide advice on legal issues and health-related concerns. Wounded warriors should consult with their Navy Wounded Warrior – Safe Harbor non-medical care management team about such matters. Navy Wounded Warrior – Safe Harbor is always looking for volunteers from the Navy and Coast Guard family interested in sponsoring a wounded warrior in their geographic location.
