Women make up 15% of the military population but all too often their specific needs and experiences get overlooked.
The Barbara Giordano Foundation offers alternative and holistic treatments to help women veterans cope with and overcome military sexual trauma and PTSD. The Foundation would like to continue to offer women veterans free programs, including the following:
· Finding Well-Being Through Art
· Trauma First Aid - Tapping Techniques
· Equine Therapy for PTSD and Sexual Trauma
· Using Plants as Healers
Historically, the Foundation has been able to raise funds to underwrite these programs by hosting in-person fundraising events. As soon as the spread of COVID-19 began, the Foundation cancelled all in-person events. We were able to quickly pivot and host weekly virtual events/workshops to continue to serve our mission. However, due to the lack of funding and the cost of hosting this volume of virtual events, we are at risk of not being able to underwrite these much needed programs.
The cost of each program varies but ranges from $50 - $750 per person.
Any donation would be extremely helpful in providing these programs to these exceptional women.
