The WVI mission is to, “Meet Women Veterans at their points of need through Advocacy, Empowerment, Interaction, Outreach and Unification – AEIOU”
A major way the WVI supports women veterans is through their unique program, Operation Safety Net (OSN, that provides emergency funding for women veterans who are homeless and at risk of being homeless. Emergency funds are combined with the WVI financial literacy program to ensure that women veterans don’t find themselves in financial hardship again. OSN makes a huge impact on combating homelessness among women veterans on a national level. Money distributed can be used to help the veteran remain in safe and suitable housing by stopping the eviction process, funding can also be used for paying first month rent and security deposits as well as rental and utility payments. In extreme cases, funds can be used to provide food for women veterans and their children. Your support for this program is crucial! Join Forces with Women Veterans Interactive and make a donation today to support Operation Safety Net. Since inception in 2013 Operation Safety Net has supported over 50 families.
