The National Women Veterans United (NWVU) is aware of the difficult times that military women veterans, service members, and other citizens are experiencing due to COVID-19.
NWVU is appealing to military women veterans to contact us and we will go as far as we can to assist you. We have also asked partners to stand with us until grants and other financial avenues are in place, and even then that may not be enough. Those that are hit the hardest are those who were already at risk, homeless and or one paycheck away from losing everything.
We are making phone calls to those that we are aware of and our doors are open for those that need us too.
