Many female veterans have difficulty transitioning from military life to life as a civilian. After leaving the military many women vets struggle with loneliness, PTSD from exposure to past combat or sexual trauma as a result of their military service, raising a child as a single parent, and many other challenges such as rejoining the workforce. Pillars 4 Dignity provides pillars and pathways to education and training, financial and economic independence, and improved health and wellness to female veterans via training and learning opportunities. Pillars 4 Dignity also offers female veterans community service programs that can help women veterans give back and help others while also enriching their own lives and building a support network in their own community.
The female veterans community tend to experience greater challenges than their male counterparts do when they leave military service and they are more likely to need more support in order to be successful after this transition. Whether a female veteran needs help or they want to help others in a similar situation, there are many ways to do this. Some groups and organizations are dedicated to providing support and needed resources to women veterans like we intend to from Pillars 4 Dignity.
