More than 30,000 women leave the U.S. Military every year. Information gathered by interviews conducted by Villagers for Veterans revealed a variety of unique challenges that women who leave the military face: an absence of a female vet community, a shortage of child care assistance for single mothers and lack of financial literacy. The issues are compounded for women because of cultural stereotypes, childcare obligations, and the gender pay gap.
Veteran service systems are not serving the female veteran population needs and current infrastructure is failing address trauma and acknowledge the diverse needs of female veterans.
That’s why Villagers for Veterans is building a transition home to specifically manage the needs of female veterans who have courageously served our great nation. Our Orchid Gala this year will help raise additional crucial funds to help build the female veteran transition home.
Tickets are $75 per person with a delicious, full-plated dinner, Theme drink, Music, Dancing and entertainment plus a cash bar.
