DAV of MN Women Veteran’s Program

The voice that promotes awareness for women Veterans

Mission:
DAV of MN Women Veterans Program builds a strong generational foundation for Women Veterans in Minnesota. We strive to provide guidance, acceptance, and belonging for women veterans and their supporters through a sense of connection and education.

Vision:
Minnesota Women Veterans are accepted and connected to thrive after military service.

The Long Journey Home:

DAV report shows service gaps for women in health care, transition services, disability compensation, employment and housing.

The research reveals that America’s nearly 300,000 women veterans are put at risk by a system designed for and dominated by male veterans.

This report paints a compelling picture of federal agencies and community service providers that consistently fail to understand that women are impacted by military service and deployment differently than men. And it points to changes that are needed in the overall culture and services provided by the federal government and local communities, listing 27 specific recommendations.
