Honoring Their Sacrifices
With the utmost respect and gratitude, we honor the bravery and sacrifices of military servicewomen. As a dedicated 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, Military Women of Valor is steadfast in its commitment to support these valiant women during their transition from active service to civilian life, acknowledging the distinct set of challenges they face, which differ considerably from those of their male counterparts.
Understanding the Challenges Faced by Female Veterans
There are over two million female veterans who have bravely served our nation. Their challenges are multifaceted, extending beyond the common post-service issues of PTSD and mental health concerns. These resilient women often face additional hurdles in their return to civilian life, including but not limited to homelessness, unemployment, economic struggles, physical disabilities, and a sense of social and spiritual disconnection.
Inspired by this sentiment, we are committed to empowering these voices. Our efforts are concentrated on addressing critical challenges such as:
- Community and Support Gaps: We aim to address the unique traumas and psychological challenges faced by female veterans, stemming from a lack of community support, especially among peers.
- Limited Childcare Options: We recognize the difficult choices female veterans often have to make between motherhood and personal well-being due to inadequate childcare facilities.
- Financial Literacy and Transition: We acknowledge that a significant 67% of female veterans experience difficulties in financial transitions post-service, a challenge more pronounced than that faced by their male counterparts.
- Preventing Sexual Assault: With a concerning 23% of women in active duty experiencing sexual assault, we emphasize the importance of immediate and effective response and support.
