PHWFF Mission Statement

posted Nov 13, 2013, 10:47 AM by Mike Balogh
Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing is dedicated to the physical and emotional rehabilitation of disabled active military service personnel and disabled veterans through fly fishing and fly tying education and outings. 

In the fulfillment of this mission, PHWFF works with wounded or disabled active military service personnel and disabled veterans in Department of Defense hospitals, Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) hospitals or clinics, and military transition units nationwide. PHWFF programs include wounded or disabled active duty, reservist, guard and veterans of all conflicts, and disabilities of all types. Our activities are coordinated with military and hospital staff, and all services are provided without cost to participants.

We have focused primarily on TU chapters, FFF clubs and other organized fishing clubs, utilizing the already existing network of concerned and committed fly fishers who populate those organizations. With the number of wounded servicemen and women returned from Iraq and Afghanistan, in addition to eligible disabled veterans from prior conflicts who reside in and/or utilize Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) hospitals and clinics, PHWFF programs would satisfy the desires of volunteers to help and provide real benefits for discharged disabled veterans near their homes.
