Our mission is to serve women veterans and their children so that their next mission is clear and continues to impact the world. Our Women Veteran Transition Services have been developed to address the growing needs of the increasing population of military women transitioning to civilian life. We address the top four needs that women veterans have self-identified as crucial to the success of their transition: education, employment, housing and childcare.
We understand that a major barrier to maintaining housing, receiving mental health or advancing one’s career, are the unmet basic needs such as financial stability, adequate childcare, stable employment, and suitable housing. Additionally, women serve with so few women in the service their transition can feel solitary and lacking peer support.
Our core programs are targeted at helping to create a stable foundation for women veterans through their transition. This means:
- • Helping women veterans locate the resources needed to secure and/or stay in housing,
- • Providing emergency subsidies that cover their rent if they lose their job,
- • Providing basic needs assistance when unexpected emergencies arise,
- • Providing access to scholarship, internship, and mentorship opportunities to help them pursue higher education or persist towards their degree, or pursue/maintain a career, and
- • Filling the gap with childcare during school breaks when she does not receive income from her GI Bill benefits.
- • Providing an environment for women veterans to engage and support one another in their transition
