Friends of Ward 8

"Helping Veterans cope with the invisible wounds"


The Friends of Ward 8 is a non-profit organization that support the Veterans of Ward 8 at the Northampton VA Medical Center in Leeds, Massachusetts. Ward 8 veterans suffer from Combat PTSD and initially go through a six week program to educate and experience different approaches to coping with PTSD.

The Friends of Ward 8 make it possible for the veterans to be as comfortable as possible during the treatment process. They supply such things as athletic equipment, appliances,  Special equipment, and other needs that do not fall under the program.

 Friends of Ward 8 only survives off it's donations and Volunteer's. If you would like to donate or assist, please contact us immediately if you can  volunteer or press the Donation page to donate to our cause. Thanks!
