Owens & Minor, Hope for the Warriors form partnership

RICHMOND, Va. – The Owens & Minor and Hope for the Warriors (HOPE) have announced a new collaboration to help support HOPE’s clientele of U.S. service members, veterans and military families and to provide ongoing engagement opportunities for Owens & Minor teammates. The partnership will be spearheaded by the Owens & Minor Veterans Teammate Resource Group, through which active and former U.S. military service members advocate for veterans and veterans’ causes on behalf of teammates and in local communities. “A core part of The Foundation’s work is empowering our teammates by supporting causes that align with our mission and represent their unique perspectives,” said Faith Cristol, president, The Owens & Minor Foundation. “We are excited to partner with an organization like Hope for the Warriors, whose tireless efforts to help improve the lives of service members and their families are a perfect reflection of The Foundation’s goal of building healthier communities.” The Foundation’s support will help more than a thousand Hope for the Warriors clients through two program pathways: 

  • HOPE’s Critical Needs Program, which assists financially vulnerable veterans, families and caregivers whose lives were impacted by the 9/11 attacks, while concurrently providing pathways to self-sufficiency. 
  • HOPE’s Military Veteran Peer (MVP) Support Program: HOPE’s Military Relations Program Managers are trained in Mental Health First Aid and Peer Support. These combat wounded veterans provide peer support to veterans; establish long-term relationship with veterans and their families; create a place of acceptance and community for veterans and their families whether virtual or in-person.
