“HONORING THOSE WHO HAVE SERVED!”
Women who serve in the US military demonstrate courage and selflessness. They deserve our respect. Yet all too often, female veterans return home to a community that does not embrace them. Many end up homeless. Although it sounds inconceivable, the fact is that right this moment, there are female veterans living on the streets of Palm Beach County, one of the wealthiest communities in the country.
To empower female military veterans for a successful reintegration to life after service by assisting them with supportive housing, job training, employment, and support services in Palm Beach County.
Our vision is to ensure that every female veteran who comes home to Palm Beach County can live independently and proudly.
In 2016, the suicide rate was 1.5 times greater for Veterans than for non-Veteran adults
The suicide rate for women Veterans was 1.8 times greater than the suicide rate for non-Veteran women.
1 out of 4 Female Veterans suffer from Military Sexual Trauma (MST).
