There are over 634,000 veterans in Michigan and over 43,000
are women , women veterans make up 1% of the veteran
United States population with 14.4% 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 veterans once again and to help them make a successful transition in all the areas of their new civilian lives, to find self-sufficiency for themselves and stabilize their families.
Michigan Women Veteran Empowerment is a veteran led collaboration of members of the Michigan veteran community working together to create veteran events, services and programs that are tailored made to meet the needs and fulfill the desires of the Michigan veteran population and their families.
