Foundation for Women Warriors celebrates Armed Forces Day
SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – A non-profit dedicated to serving women veterans and their families is celebrating Armed Forces Day by bringing awareness to the needs of women veterans.
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, Foundation for Women Warriors has shifted their focus to the most immediate needs of the women veteran community.
The nonprofit organization is actively assisting women veterans and their children through the new Women Veteran Emergency Services program by providing stipends to help female veterans remain financially sustainable in the face of crisis.
Jodie Grenier, CEO of Foundation for Women Warriors, shares, “Our programs exist to honor the service and empower the economic stability and well-being of the women veteran community. Women veterans have historically been a vulnerable and underserved population, and due to COVID-19 our emergency services are in high demand.”
