FOUNDATION FOR WOMEN WARRIORS
The Foundation for Women Warriors (Formerly Military Women In Need) is a unique support organization created exclusively for the women veteran community of Southern California. We provide essential programs to empower the resiliency and professional development of Women Warriors. Every step is dedicated to supporting these outstanding women to navigate obstacles and realize their maximum potential after their service career.
We exist to serve women veterans and their children so that their next mission is clear and continues to impact the world.
WHY WOMEN VETERANS?
Often overshadowed by their male counterparts, our programs honor, empower and support the women who answered our nation’s call to serve.

Formerly known as Military Women In Need, the organization was created in 1921 as Housing Subsidies Program for widows and mothers of fallen service members. In 2005, Military Women In Need began its focus on women veterans. Today we continue to serve women veterans and their children as Foundation for Women Warriors.
