There are over 47,000 women veterans in Michigan, women veterans make up 1% of the veteran United States population with 14.6% in the active duty ranks. The challenges women veterans face in transitioning from military to civilian life are many; unemployment, homelessness, PTSD and more. Many women veterans need assistance and often tend to isolate if they don't receive the critical intervention of services needed. Awareness is imperative as these issues arise, so does our understanding of the challenges our women veterans face each day. Our most sincere hope is to empower our women veterans once again and to help them make a successful transition into all the areas of their new civilian lives and to find self-sufficiency for themselves and stabilize their families.
Women Veteran Empowerment is a women veteran led collaboration of members of the Michigan veteran community working together to create a women veteran programs that are tailored made to meet the needs and fulfill the desires of the Michigan women veteran population and their families.
