From Those We've Served

I am incredibly thankful for the added support that your organization has provided for me and my family. As a single mother of two young boys, I find myself constantly struggling financially with the added responsibilities of childcare services. Your support has made it possible for me to focus on work, home, and kids without the added financial strain. Thank you for alleviating life for me in a very meaningful way.

There’s something empowering about a room full of successful women. We are learning to be one voice; when one woman is successful, we are all successful!

Kathy, CWC Mentor

From Those We've Served

Thank you for focusing your support on female veterans – we are the last group of women to ask for help and support out of all women. We were taught to never to show or admit to any weakness but need to learn self-care and support. This was a very empowering and motivating event.

    Join us for a special screening of Unsung Heroes: Join us for a special screening of Unsung Heroes: The Story of America’s Female Patriots on November 9th at 5:00pm (PT).

From Academy Award Filmmaker and Executive Producer Ron Howard, this documentary highlights the heroic sacrifices of women that served in the American military. Every woman that has ever served has volunteered to do so, but their profound accomplishments have been largely ignored.

With rare photographs, archival materials and personal memorabilia to illustrate this eclectic mix of on-camera interviews. It is a story of all guts and no glory and how the price of liberty is relevant to all Americans.
