There are over 700,000 veterans in Michigan and over 47,000 are women, women veterans make up 1% of the veteran United States population with 14.6% in the active duty ranks. The challenges veterans especially women are in transitioning from military to civilian life successfully factors of unemployment, homelessness, disabilities, undiagnosed health conditions and more.
Many veterans especially women need support and assistance and often they 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 veterans especially women 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.
