National Women Veterans United (NWVU) consists of a network of women veterans across the nation with a history of past and/or present service in the United States Armed Forces in all branches of services, during War and peacetime.

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.

NWVU on behalf of women veterans identify needed benefits and resources, to ensure women veterans have access to daily well-being services. Furthermore, NWVU educates women veterans on their entitlements such as healthcare, education, employment and training, vocational assistance, and other VA benefits. NWVU attempts to inform governmental entities of the critical issues and needs of women veterans and women currently serving in the Armed Forces by hosting community panel discussions and forums to generate diverse responses to the issues that impact women veterans nationwide.

NWVU provides fiduciary services to veterans at no cost, emergency assistance, clothes, food and transportation, peer support, health and wellness programs such as creative art therapy, dance fitness, healthy eating and cooking information, financial literacy for women veterans and their families. NWVU monitors community-based organizations and makes referrals to safe communities that provide access and proven programs that assist women veterans to maintain resiliency, mental health stability, physical, psychosocial and spiritual health well-being.

NWVU makes referrals to Veteran and non-veteran Organizations who provide effective services that are available for women veterans and their families. NWVU members host events throughout the year to encourage and educate women veterans of the importance and urgency to have annual screening and checkups for Breast Cancer, diabetes, and other chronic illnesses.

NWVU promotes and hosts programs during National Women’s History Month, Women Veterans Day and Memorial Day. NWVU prioritizes health initiatives, parades, and other activities which recognize the past and present contributions of women veterans and their sacrifices.
