Wounded Warrior Project Celebrates a Successful Fiscal Year 2016


An experienced law enforcement and security professional, Joseph Sordi serves as managing director of Strategic Security Corp. in New York City. In addition to his professional pursuits, Joseph Sordi supports several nonprofit groups, including Wounded Warrior Project (WWP).

In a recently released statement, WWP announced that it exceeded its goal to provide mental health services for 2,500 post-9/11 veterans and their family members in fiscal year 2016. The organization provided the services through its Combat Stress Recovery Program, a donor-supported initiative that helps meet the mental health needs of veterans with posttraumatic stress disorder, depression, traumatic brain injury, and other combat-related issues.

The news release comes just weeks after WWP put out a statement announcing that it raised a record-setting $71 million this fiscal year to support its Benefits Services program, which helps connect veterans with services offered through the Department of Defense and Department of Veterans Affairs. By finishing strong in FY 2016, WWP has a head start on reaching its 2017 goal to continue assisting combat veterans in overcoming physical and mental injuries.
