Mid-September marked the kick off of the first WoVeN groups in San Antonio, TX, Charlotte, NC, and Pittsburgh, PA! WoVeN staff is so excited to start groups in these three cities. We are also thrilled that our excitement has been matched by the enthusiasm of the women Veterans who have joined these first WoVeN groups! The eight-week program brings women Veterans together weekly to discuss topics such as transitions, balance, and stress relief while building a community of women Veterans. Again and again, the WoVeN staff has heard that women Veterans have difficulty finding and connecting with other women Veterans. Many women have told us that they would like a space exclusively for women Veterans to talk and share with each other. The WoVeN groups and network are built specifically to answer this call.
WoVeN’s vision is to foster connection and create a network amongst women Veterans. It is our mission to make WoVeN accessible to all women Veterans – if a WoVeN group isn’t currently in your city, check out our discussion forums to instantly connect with WoVeN women. WoVeN is for all women Veterans, and we invite you to join the conversation! If you are not in one of the current three WoVeN cities, stay tuned to see where WoVeN will grow next or suggest a new city for WoVeN!
