    The cost of childcare nearly triples for veterans The cost of childcare nearly triples for veterans and becomes a financial barrier for veterans pursuing career and educational goals. For single parents, reliable childcare can truly make or break a family’s wellbeing. Here at FFWW, we have the only childcare assistance program available to women veterans and their children. 

Valerie, an Army veteran and single parent found herself struggling to afford childcare and reached out to us for help:

“Thank you, you have no idea what this means to us! I was so scared, for both of us, until finding your organization. I was for certain that I’d need to drop out of school. You are the reason we are going to get through this.” 

You can read Valerie’s story by visiting the link in our bio.

    Mentorship increases the chances of success by pro Mentorship increases the chances of success by providing someone not only with knowledge and wisdom, but also the professional and emotional support to make difficult decisions. Last week, the Women's Professional Leadership Forum provided an opportunity for junior military leaders to hear from senior women mentors at the 305th Military Intelligence (MI) Battalion Headquarters.

“We hold these forums because women can sometimes make up only 10 to 20 percent -- sometimes less -- of a unit’s population, and it can be difficult when you face obstacles that are unique to you, and you don’t have someone to relate to or seek out as a mentor”

What have you learned from your mentors? Tag a mentor to show your appreciation for their support.
