MIWVE's mission is to identify, connect, educate, advocate, support and empower all military veterans, service members, their family members and the BIPOC youth in the 
8 dimensions of wellness.
MIWVE is dedicated to continuing to safely carry out our mission during this COVID-19 Pandemic season. In the military the mission
never stops regardless of the season. So we carry that same spirit in serving within our communities at large.  We've experienced fruitful years and plan to expand our programs in 2023. We have faith in God to give us what we need to continue effectively serve others.
