Project INVEST

Project INVEST (INjured Veterans Entering Sport Training) was established in 2012 and has served injured, ill and wounded military by offering adaptive sports and activities at various venues and locations throughout North Texas. We serve disabled military, both active duty and veterans, with permanent physical/psychological conditions such as amputations, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, visual impairments, and post-traumatic stress disorder.

Project INVEST was created with help from the US Paralympics and the VA through an Olympic Opportunity Fund Grant. Our mission is to serve those who have served by building strength through sport and confidence through competition. TWU’s students are highly involved in the program volunteering, doing research and learning about the physical and psychosocial disabilities that affect veterans. TWU attracts students who want to work with veterans and is quickly gaining a reputation for this excellent program.
