WSWVETS was established in June, 2010 by a group of women that shared a passion for making the lives of our women WSWVETS’ goal is to work toward making a positive difference in the lives of our Nations Female Veterans.  To assist women that have returned from serving their country in resuming an active, successful, productive and satisfying life in society with their family and friends.  WSWVETS offers hope and healing, through peer to peer support, education and sharing

 

The mission of WSWVETS clearly aligns with the objectives of our Fiscal Sponsor,  Communities of Hope’s veteran initiatives and values to support housing, medical, job assistance and overall well being our  veterans.  We also share the guiding principles of our Mentor General Carol Ann Fausone (Ret) to provide the best for the women who have served this county so honorably.  

 

WSWVETS resources are used in providing education on available services, support and peer to peer mentoring, achieve suitable housing and jobs.  WSWVETS works closely with each veteran to provide support and assistance for them while they maneuver the processes of the Veterans Administration and other veteran organizations.  We partner with many  private Veterans Services to supplement and enhance government provided service

 

Through peer to peer support and 1 on 1 mentoring between veterans we are involved in initiating and supporting training programs that enable veterans to secure meaningful jobs that meet their skills and allow them to support themselves and their families.

 

WSWVETS has partnered with the members of the EAGALA Organization (www.eagala.org/US) to provide Equine Assisted therapy to veterans with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Military Sexual Trauma (MST) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) in a serene and spiritual farm environment, woods, ponds, trails, wetlands and wilderness.  Additional programs are being developed in partnership with VSA Michigan in Art and Writing Therapy to enhance the communication of our veterans with their family and friends.  Weekend mentoring retreats  and peer to peer interaction as a way  to extend this very beneficial activity that is now just a few hours a month.
