“Heal a Vet”: Post-traumatic stress syndrome (PTSD) in military women is more than double the rate in men (10% versus 4%). Under the care and guidance of certified and licensed professionals, we provide holistic healing services to treat post-traumatic stress syndrome (PTSD), traumatic brain injury (TBI), military sexual trauma (MST) and other emotional and physical health issues incurred before, during and/or after their military service.
“Hire a Vet”: Young female veterans are experiencing an unemployment rate as high as 36.1%. We work in collaboration and cooperation with other non-profit and for-profit organizations to place them into either well-paying jobs or entrepreneurial opportunities. Because many military women have childcare needs and/or may need to move frequently, we factor that into the timing, content, delivery, and outcomes of our training and mentoring programs.
“Honor a Vet”: We know that transitioning from military to civilian life has its unique challenges, especially for military women. We provide those much needed skills, advocacy and support to help military women thrive, not just survive.
“House a Vet”: Sadly, our young female veterans are among the fastest growing homeless population in the United States. It is our mission to prevent, solve and put an end to this tragic statistic. We’ve created a comprehensive, holistic approach to solving and serving our military women so they don’t end up on the streets…and we partner with other organizations to help those who have.
“Help a Vet”: Thanks to your generous donations and support, our Sisters Who Serve can recover, re-enter society and re-engage in productive work. We know our military women represent some of the most caring, committed, courageous and intelligent human resources in the United States today. Our philosophy is “Always a hand up, never a hand out”…and our proud Sisters Who Serve wouldn’t have it any other way.
The long term vision is to also have local support groups nationwide (starting in California, Texas, and Florida, where the highest number of veterans reside) to meet monthly for ongoing transition assistance support.
