Haley VA Medical Center may be eligible to receive services provided by OpHH. Since 2004 the organization has assisted more than 200 seriously wounded and injured veterans and more than 500 family members.
Support for OpHH comes from many sources, and area support has been generous and heartwarming.
OpHH provided an in-kind donation of more than $17,000 for the opening and dedication of the new Fisher House on the Tampa VA Campus and to support the facility.
According to Wellenc, OpHH sets the benchmark for all organizations in the Tampa community.
OpHH is a non-profit organization and the recipient of two national Newman's Own Awards, one first place award in 2005, which included a $10,000 grant from the Paul Newman Foundation; and a third place in 2006.
