Each May, Inspiring HANDS provides up to $20,000.00 to qualified recipients. Awards offset tuition costs for them to attend summer camp or equestrian therapy centers which focus on cultivating skills, independence, and values needed for success. As a 100% volunteer operated 501(c) 3 charitable organization, you are assured that your donations are tax deductible and will directly benefit those in need within the community.
The continued success of the Awards Program relies on donations and participation in events such as Molly's Pub Gumbo Cook-Off & Cajun Dish Throw-Down. Inspiring HANDS hosts one main fundraiser a year which funds the awards program. Come Together Extravaganza is held each October and features live entertainment, dinner, open bar, contests, auctions and more.

The facility opened in 2012 and is located in a quiet and safe setting in Houston, Texas whereby veterans and their immediate family members can find healing, help and hope while benefiting from an intensive peer support and mentoring program for Post Traumatic Stress. In addition to temporary housing, Camp Hope offers a 90+ day PTSD recovery program in which residents: attend group lessons and support sessions with other combat veterans; conduct individual mentoring sessions with certified combat trauma mentors; participate in off-site small group interaction activities (fishing, hiking, local activities and events); and get involved with local churches, businesses and volunteer organizations to assist in their personal healing and educating the community on the invisible wounds of war.
While we are continuing to expand, resident rooms at Camp Hope are currently limited and assigned based on first come first serve and need. Contact us on our PTSD Veteran Line at 877-717-PTSD (7873) for more information, acceptance criteria and availability.
