Come back every month to see which veteran charity supporting women veterans will be featured on the Sisters in Arms Podcast!
January and February 2021 Charity
The Military Women’s Memorial honors and tells the stories of women, past and present, who serve our nation.
We are the leading memorial and education center honoring women’s contributions to the service of our nation.
As the only historical repository documenting all military women’s service, we educate and inspire through innovative and interactive exhibitions, our world-class collections, and engaging programs and events for all generations. We honor the commitment, contributions and experiences of every woman who serves in, or with, the Armed Forces.
November and December 2020 Charity
Women Veterans Interactive (WVI) was created to address the unique, and often unrecognized, challenges facing our nation’s 1.8 million woman veterans as they return to civilian life. WVI has members spanning 12 states providing outreach and support services to more than 1,000 women veterans.
September and October 2020 Charity
Project Sanctuary believes that every military family has the right and ability to heal. Veterans and service members often struggle to transition into a “new normal” after service or deployment. Faced with higher rates of unemployment, addiction, suicide, and other challenges, military families too often fight their battles alone.
We are proud to be one of the only organizations serving veterans, spouses, caregivers, and children as a family unit. Veterans have a 50% higher risk of dying by suicide than civilians. Active duty suicide rates have reached an all-time high since 2012, and 123 military spouses succumbed to suicide in 2017. Our mission is critical.
Our comprehensive evidence-based program is one of the only ones treating the entire family, active duty service members from all branches of the military, and veterans from all eras of service. We reconnect families, restore hope, and change lives through therapeutic retreat and long-term family support services.
July and August 2020 Charity
The mission of Final Salute Inc. is to provide homeless women Veterans with safe and suitable housing.
It is estimated that there are currently 55,000 homeless women Veterans in the United States on any given day. For the sacrifices they and their families have made, this is an unacceptable state for any of them to be in. Final Salute Inc. believes in paying women Veterans with the proper respects due to them for the service they have provided to our country. Final Salute also works with the Veteran in establishing her plan towards independence.
No more than 10% of every dollar goes towards admin cost
The H.O.M.E Program provides transitional housing, on-site case management, food, clothing, transportation, child care subsidy/assistance, employment support and other essential supportive services to homeless women Veterans and their children. It focuses on integrating women Veterans back into their local communities and providing vast, safe and suitable residential areas to choose from.
The S.A.F.E Program is to prevent homelessness by easing financial hardships.
The S.A.F.E Program also provides valuable financial education resources on saving, budgeting and living on a fixed income. It provides emergency financial support by assisting with past due rent, security deposits and utility assistance.
The S.A.F.E Program is open to women Veterans and members of the U.S. Military Reserve and Guard component forces, regardless of their location. These programs have assisted women Veterans and children in over 30 States and Territories.
The Next Uniform provides support for women Veterans and military women in Transition. As a woman Veteran in transition, you need more than a resume to ensure a successful transition into the civilian workforce. We realize that some women Veterans, especially single mothers, may find the cost of securing an up-to-date professional wardrobe unattainable.
