Welcome to Our Community of Women Veterans
We are a small non-profit organization providing re-entry services for women who served in the U.S. Armed Forces. Our primary mission is to counsel, assist and guide women veterans to take advantage of opportunities for education and training and to effectively seek community and government resources to improve quality of life.
