Military Women of Valor aims to create a restorative home for female veterans and their children.

The National Alliance to End Homelessness (NAEH) estimated that 38% of all homeless individuals living in shelters are women. Women comprise the fastest-growing segment of the homeless Veteran population. From 2016 to 2017, the number of homeless female Vets increased by 7% compared to 1% for their male counterparts.

Who We Are

We are a Delaware-Maryland Eastern shore-based 501)c nonprofit organization, that will be providing housing, healthcare, jobs, life skills training along with other resources through partnership providers.

MWOV will help female Veteran service women (frequently homeless), as they move from homelessness and co-dependent, often abusive relationships, into independent, self-sufficient lifestyles. Additionally, it will assist clients to connect with partners in their child reunification process. This is particularly important as 80% of the clients have children, but no custody.
