Women Veterans Network (WoVeN)Women Veterans Network (WoVeN) Contact: Cat Corchado
WoVeN is a nationwide network of peer support groups specifically for women Veterans. WoVeN welcomes and connects all women Veterans who are separated from the service, no matter your era, branch, rank, length of service, or discharge status. If you are a woman Veteran who served in the United States Armed Forces, WoVeN warmly welcomes you!
Each WoVeN group has about 5-10 members and is led by two women Veterans who have been trained as WoVeN Peer Leaders. WoVeN groups are hosted in two places: either in a WoVeN city or online from wherever you may be! Online groups are a great way to connect with other women Veterans from all different geographic locations from the comfort of your own home. To help group members share and reflect on many different aspects of their life, each group meeting focuses on a new theme. These themes were hand selected with help from women Veterans. By building strong connections among women Veterans, WoVeN groups are designed to enhance wellness, relationships, and career satisfaction.
WoVeN group members also contribute to important research to help women Veterans! We want to know how participation in WoVeN impacts the lives of the WoVeN women who participate, so WoVeN women may choose to participate in a research study where they share information about their own experiences. Participating in the research component of WoVeN can help the WoVeN program—and other programs—best meet the needs of women Veterans.
