The number of women veterans in our nation is currently at 1.8 million – an all-time high and a number that continues to grow.
Organizations that offer assistance and programming that is specific to the needs of female veterans are limited in number and are many times unable to assist due to limited means.
How Camp Shield is making a difference:
Camp Shield has listened to the heart of female veterans, the concerns of male veterans as it relates to their female counterparts, veteran supporters, partner organizations and donors for over five years. These conversations revealed a lack of resources created BY female veterans, FOR female veterans that address emotional, social and physical wounds. These unseen wounds have contributed to a lower quality of life, emotional instability and a lack of social engagement as seen in communities across the nation. Camp Shield is working to address these wounds and improve the lives of female veterans.
Join us in our efforts as we continue to connect with this population to assist, develop and celebrate the personal and professional successes of female veterans and their families.
