Women Warriors

A Woman Warrior’s Story: Army Veteran

Even if they are working there are times when unexpected financial issues might arise. This woman warrior was working, taking care of her child, and was about to lose her housing because of costly car repairs. With some support from FFWW, we were able to make sure that she remained housed with her child.

“Foundation for Women Warriors financial assistance program assisted me with rent during a time that I was really struggling. There was nowhere that I could acquire the money that I need to pay my rent, the fact that this program was able to provide that much assistance within such a short period of time was really a relief for me. It is just my son and I, so to know that there is an organization out there that we can count on in a time of need took a lot of stress off me. I would recommend this program to any woman veteran because they did what they said they would do. Hopefully one day I will be able to donate to this program myself”.  – Army veteran
