"In WoVeN, you will find the sisterhood, support, love, and belonging that you have been longing for."
"WoVeN is a reminder that we are not alone. In any small town, city, state or across the nation, we are woven emotionally, and are intimately strong together."
"WoVeN is an experience, and it may be hard to understand the benefits of being part of a WoVeN group until you’re able to reunite with women Veterans and support each other in a way that you’ve never been supported before. Until you experience it, you don’t realize how much you were missing that."
"With WoVeN, you can take that shield down and have a place in a group of individuals who have been there, done that, gone through what you have gone through. You can share and feel free to express your concerns and worries and make it better for yourself."
"WoVeN gives you that positive support system/connection to help moving forward in our life’s story while still owning our military experience. It’s great to know there is a place where we can belong and be empowered."
"Joining WoVeN will be the best experience of your life! With this group there is no competition… we support each other!"
“My favorite thing about working with women Veterans is the bond that is created when you get women Veterans together. Working with women Veterans is something I hold close to my heart.”
“As women Veterans, we need to be able to connect and reflect about our past, present, and future. My hope is to stay connected and deepen friendships with my WoVeN family and be open to new friendships with future WoVeN participants.”
"WoVeN is a lifeline back to familiar ground, a comfort zone, a future that you can grow with, be part of, and be with those who understand your issues."
