We provide real solutions to real challenges, and we conduct important research to ensure that these solutions continually meet Women Veterans’ needs.

Solutions in a Sisterhood of Strength
Big problems require big solutions.
That’s why, for over a decade, WVIF has worked directly with Women Veterans and met them at their points of need. We provide a targeted ecosystem of training, research, outreach, and support for Women Veterans.
Our solutions combat the unique threats that Women Veterans face, creating meaningful change and limitless possibilities. We walk alongside Women Veterans in each stage of their transition from military service, engaging them in programs that provide workforce development, transition assistance, professional networking, empowerment, community-building and crisis relief.
Our approach is made all the more effective by one important detail: we deliver solutions within a secure, compassionate, understanding community.
It’s our sisterhood. Our sisterhood of strength.

Women Veterans Action Survey
Share Your Voice
In 2021, WVIF launched the Women Veterans Institute, a specialized research initiative designed to capture real data on the state of Women Veterans in the U.S. As part of this initiative, we are conducting the Women Veterans Action Survey, powered by Comcast NBC Universal and Medallia. This research initiative will combine statistical data with anecdotal evidence, enabling us to deliver necessary support to Women Veterans and understand their full experience.
We strongly encourage Women Veterans to lend their voices to this survey. Your stories and experiences will help WVIF and like-minded advocates and organizations meet your evolving needs.
