Organization Info

Challenge America, a national nonprofit organization serving Veterans and their families, launched the Military Sisterhood Initiative (MSI) in 2018 after hearing from women Veterans about the need for an online space where they could safely connect with one another about their unique experiences and challenges.

MSI is a national peer support network of and for women of the military. In effect, it’s a network built on the tried and true military concept of having your sister’s “six”. Designed by military women, MSI aspires to connect and empower every military sister in the country.

According to one member, “I think the fact that female Veterans are a sparse population that is quickly growing is the purpose of this site. Many of us have been isolated so long because camaraderie is far and few between female Veterans. We have unique experiences that are not always relatable to our male counterparts, and these networking opportunities are an attempt to bridge the gap, so we hopefully don’t feel so alone anymore.”

The online platform allows women Veterans the opportunity to connect in a protected
discussion forum. Women Veterans may join special interest groups for topical discussion. A calendar in the MSI platform shares events specifically for women Veterans happening online and around the country.

Women Veterans may access the collaborative resource library for services related to health and wellness, recreation and travel, education, caregiver support and more!
