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.

    Lt. Col. Amy McGrath, who paved the way as one of Lt. Col. Amy McGrath, who paved the way as one of the first women in the Marine Corps to fly an F/A-18 Hornet into combat, attended a "winging" ceremony for 1st Lt. Brenda McCarthy, possibly the last female F/A-18 Hornet weapons systems officer in the Marine Corps.

"I thought it would be a true inspiration for my sisters who are pretty young, and females in general in the military to see empowering women in aviation, in a men's club, just honoring each other"

The Marine Corps are phasing out the F/A-18 Hornet and are transitioning to the F-35 Lightning II.
