From the Chairman
HONORING WOMEN VETERANS
Women Veterans: We see you. We Hear You. We Thank you!
I want to introduce you to the organization “Monument to Women Veterans!” Monument to Women Veterans, Inc., is a 501c3 Charitable Non-Profit Corporation established in 2011 that has been leading the charge in recognizing and empowering our military women through a variety of community outreach and awareness efforts.
Their mission and vision are to pursue the development of a monument to honor all women, past, present, and future, who served in the US Military and often provide unmet critical resources for female veteran care.
Monument to Women Veterans strives to recognize the service and sacrifices of the women who have proudly donned a United States armed services uniform. MWV offers resources and services for many issues, including Post Traumatic Stress, Military Sexual Trauma, Traumatic Brain Issues, Domestic Violence, Unemployment, Homelessness, and countless more that may arise in the future.
Monument to Women Veterans has three programs the first one: The Home for the Holidays Program, was started in 2012 when the Monument to Women Veterans, Inc., and POE In Action, Inc., came together to seek new means to provide much-needed housing for local homeless veterans and their families.
The second: A Transitional Housing Project: This project is focused on the physical and mental well-being of all female veterans facing various transitions. It is designed as a transitional housing program that provides supportive services, including job counseling; requires veterans to seek and maintain employment; requires veterans to pay reasonable rent; requires sobriety as a condition of occupancy; and serves other female veterans needing housing on a space-available basis.
And the third program: The Invisible War Program: The Monument to Women Veterans, Inc., has purchased the screening rights for the award-winning film “The Invisible War.” Filmmaker Kirby Dick presents this groundbreaking investigative documentary about one of America’s most shameful and best-kept secrets – the epidemic of rape within the U.S. military. MWV offers this film as part of our ongoing community education and advocacy for all who serve in the U.S. military, past, present, and future.
