What is the Four Star Alliance?
America’s Warrior Partnership’s Four Star Alliance is a national initiative committed to ensuring that veterans, their families and their caregivers have access to vetted adaptive sports, recreational therapy and wellness programs – helping to advance their physical, mental and emotional well-being.
We support and promote excellence in programs that veterans rely on to help with overcoming or minimizing physical, mental, social and emotional limitations.
Member organizations offer evidence-based programs and services designed to restore veterans’ independence and improve their overall quality of life. These programs include therapeutic individual, couple and family retreats; adaptive sports activities; ongoing community engagement initiatives; support animal training and placement; and, projects specifically for military kids. They range from equine therapy sessions to adaptive snowboarding lessons, span the country and have served veterans from each of the 50 states.
We were looking to collaborate with other programs to ensure excellence and develop a referral system for those we can no longer serve.
