Why We Are Needed
Female Veteran population up +0.6 percent per year. At present, more than 1.25 million Veterans live below the poverty line. Female Veterans are much more likely to be poor than male veterans.
Women Veterans are at least twice as likely to be homeless as non-veteran women. Women Veterans are also more likely to be single parents with one or more dependents.
The National Veterans Foundation had reported “Even though the current percentage of United States Veterans that are women is 10 percent, female veterans are often overlooked. The mental, physical, and military service needs of women are often very different from those of male veterans.”
How We Are Making A Difference By Being The Difference

The National Women Veterans United (NWVU) is a 501(c)(3) organization consisting of a network of women veterans with a history of past and/or present service in the United States Armed Forces. [NWVU.org]
NWVU’s mission is to advocate, educate and bond with all military women veterans with special emphasis on women who are disabled, homeless, at-risk or returning from deployment, to ensure they are connected to appropriate direct services and resources for readjustment and coping skills, as they return to employment, school and family.
