With One Voice One Vision supporting the women who have served, are serving and planning to serve in the United States Military!

The only military women veterans center in Illinois was opened on September 7, 2019, in Chicago, Illinois by the National Women Veterans United.

The Sgt. Simone A. Robinson Military Women Veteran’s Center continues to be of faithful service. However, a larger facility will be required to address the immediate and long-term needs of the women who have served, are serving, and planning to serve in the United States Military!

OneVoiceOneVision.org will be dedicated to providing information about the National Women Veterans United’s pursuit of building a larger facility for the Sgt. Simone A. Robinson Military Women Veteran’s Center as well as insight into other NWVU capital projects. For NWVU activities, programs, and membership or to donate please visit our organization’s website at NWVU.org

Sergeant Simone A. Robinson Military Women Veteran’s Center mission is to provide personalized services to women veterans, focusing on issues women can experience, including being homeless with children.

She was a single mother from Chicago when she died.

In addition to being the fastest-growing group in the Veteran population, Women Veterans are also the fastest-growing group in the homeless population, and four times more likely to become homeless than their male peers. Women Veterans in general face significant economic and housing challenges, however, Veterans who are single mothers are particularly vulnerable.

Join the National Women Veterans United’s undertaking to service more and all military women by expanding the only Military Women Veterans Center in Illinois!  Learn More

The National Women Veterans United (NWVU) mission is to advocate, educate and bond with all military women veterans with special emphasis on women who are disabled, homeless, at risk or returning from deployment, to ensure they are connected to appropriate direct services and resources for readjustment and coping skills, as they return to employment, school and family. Ensure they have access to equivalent well-being services and programs as our male veteran counterparts separately for private circumstances and jointly when appropriate. Educate women veterans on their VA benefits and entitlements such as healthcare, education, employment and training, vocational assistance, and other VA and community resources. Mentor and lend our leadership skills to youth programs such as the Girl Scouts, JROTC, Military Family Readiness Groups (FRG) and Gold Star families.
