Hi everyone! I’ve been selected as a Semi-Finalist in the 2018 Ms. Veteran America Competiton. Ms. Veteran America is a movement which encourages women veterans to uplift each other and find their tribe. The purpose of the competition is to raise awareness about the increasing HOMELESS FEMALE VETERAN POPULATION and to raise money to provide shelter for our Nations Sheros.
Did you know that WOMEN VETERANS are currently the fastest growing homeless population in America with over half being single mothers? It only takes $25.00 a day to house a Female Veteran and her children.
I am the face of what a "homeless female veteran" looks like. Over the next few months, as I describe my journey to and from homelessness, I am also describing the journey of too many other female veterans I've met along my journey as well as those whom I've yet to meet. Our resumes, education, service, experiences, struggles, triumphs, tragedies & outcomes resemble each other. Apparently, there’s alot of us out here, and that just shouldn’t be!
Proceeds from this event provide housing for homeless women Veterans and their children. Please visit my link to donate to the Final Salute Inc. fundraiser
