Formed in 2012 by a group of female veterans, The Northeast Florida Women Veterans provides support to women who served on active duty, Reservists and members of the National Guard and their children.
Women are the fastest growing community of military veterans. As veterans, they are subject to the same challenges as their male counterparts: PTSD, MST, high divorce rate, health issues and even homelessness. But women have challenges that men don’t have, often including child care, sexual abuse and gender discrimination.
Here in Florida we host the third-largest population of women veterans in the country, with Duval County as the largest in the state. Therefore it is on us to set the standard for providing care and resources to the women who have and continue to serve.
Northeast Florida Women Veteran will be the voice of women veterans and help them excel beyond their own expectations.
Northeast Florida Women Veterans, Inc. is focused on ensuring women who have served on active duty, National Guard or Reserves and their children, transition into the civilian community with the tools they need to become self-sufficient. We operate a resource center to provide supportive and career services to women veterans and advocate for and promote community awareness of their challenges and accomplishments at the local, state and national level ensuring each has a voice.
