alexaOur Women Veterans Focus Groups have identified the following pressing needs. Your involvement can help us address these needs and serve those who have given us so much through their military service. We continue to work with an Advisory Council of Women Veterans to determine which services are most needed. Among the needs already identified are:

Peer Counseling – Veteran to Veteran

Peer Support Groups

Employment Assistance

Childcare

Housing

Specialized Programs

  • Healing from Military Sexual Abuse
  • Creative arts for self-expression
  • Skills to help cope with transitioning to civilian life
  • Resource guides to services – VA and non-VA

Educational Forums
Valuable information from experts in Holistic Health, Stress Management, Job Training and more.

NOTE: Our goal is not to replicate services already existing in the community. Rather we seek to partner with or complement other organizations that support the population we are committed to serve. Why a Community-Based model is the most effective solution to meet the needs of veterans is explained below.

What is Community-Based Care?

Community-based care is a collection of services provided by local community organizations which complement the resources provided by government. The strength of community-based care for veterans (and for any population) is that it is holistic. When done well, it can reduce both barriers to access and stigma for those who need and use services. It also recognizes the unique character of each community, allowing a tailored system that meets the needs in that particular place and time. It is fiscally sound because it uses existing community resources. Lastly, it can serve the dual purposes of providing easily accessible care while educating and engaging the larger community. A community-based care approach makes even more sense for veterans and their families now that most do not live on or near traditional military installations.
