A Comprehensive Solution

Support for Women Veterans

The Women Veterans Interactive Foundation (WVIF) equips Women Veterans with knowledge and tools necessary to meet their physical, mental, and financial needs. We provide real solutions to real challenges, and we conduct important research to ensure that these solutions continually meet Women Veterans’ needs. At WVIF, we envision support for Women Veterans as a robust and interactive ecosystem of initiatives, which enable Women Veterans to reclaim their pride of service, access essential resources, and find comfort amongst their peers.

WVIF’s programs connect Women Veterans to:

Transition Assistance

To create a smooth adjustment to civilian life.

Comprehensive Research

To gain a full-spectrum picture of Women Veterans' experiences, and develop valuable solutions and services.

Women's Empowerment

To inspire new directions, and to equip with essential knowledge and tools.

Networking Opportunities

To build strong connections among peers and industry leaders.

Access to Healthcare

To improve access to earned benefits.

Crisis Relief

To meet critical needs during emergency situations.

Research shows that these types of specialized programs are key to preventing homelessness, creating opportunities for career success, thwarting suicidal ideations, and laying the groundwork for post military success. 

Created by Women Veterans for Women Veterans, WVIF is a community of sisters and a network of industry leaders and veteran advocates. We are committed to supporting Women Veterans during all stages of their transition to civilian life. Join us, and experience the difference.

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.
