Navy Wounded Warrior – Safe Harbor (NWW-SH) is the Navy’s sole organization for coordinating the non-medical care of seriously wounded, ill and injured Sailors and Coast Guardsmen, and providing resources and support to their families. Through proactive leadership, the program provides individually-tailored assistance designed to optimize the success of the wounded warriors’ recovery, rehabilitation and reintegration activities.
NWW-SH provides a wide range of support services to wounded warriors recovering from serious illness or injury – beginning at bedside and continuing throughout the rest of their lives. Wounded warriors enrolled in the program are assigned a regional non-medical care management team that helps develop a Comprehensive Recovery Plan (CRP). The CRP identifies short- and long-term recovery goals and lists strategies to achieve them.
Our team’s goal is to help Sailors and Coast Guardsmen return to duty. When that’s not possible, the program works collaboratively with federal agencies, including the Department of Veterans Affairs and the Department of Labor, as well as state and local organizations, to ensure successful reintegration of service members back into their communities.
Sailors and Coast Guardsmen may self-refer to the program or be referred by family members, command leadership or medical providers. For service members in the SE, a referral form may be downloaded (see below) and emailed to Chet.Frith@navy.mil.
