CFVF United Programs and Projects:
T.E.A. & More…
Here at CFVF United, we like to think of our service to women warriors as the equivalent of sitting down with treasured friends for a cup of hot tea and fellowship, always offering an ear to their needs, as well as an embrace for future blessings.
Our team develops programs and projects aligned with the needs of our valued Combat Female Veteran friends, with strong commitment to the following areas of focus:
We engage both Combat Female Veterans (CFVs), as well as deployed Combat Females preparing for their returns home, with the intent of easing their transitions to civilian life. For many women, given the toll of deployment to their families, transition periods last many years – sometimes a lifetime.
Transition services vary, but include:
Through our partnership with the NOW (National Organization of Women) Chapter in Winston-Salem and our connections to a wide range of other Veteran-centric entities, CFVF United is actively building relationships with deployed female service members stationed in combat zones.
Through our Emergency Relief Fund, CFVF United provides limited financial assistance to CFVs in times of financial crises. Monies can be applied toward mortgage/rental expenses or hotel lodging. (subject to availability)
CFVF United is a Home Depot Foundation Grants partner. By sponsoring Veterans in need, we’re able to facilitate home renovations and service-related modifications.
Easing the Burden of Food Insecurity Through Serving Spoon
Presently, CFVF United collaborates monthly with Leslie’s House, a women-only homeless shelter, by providing hot meals and/or groceries to female residents in need.
CFVF United partners with Operation Good Jobs, a Goodwill Industries endeavor.
Through training and mentorship, we provide education as related to Veteran benefits and support services.
The Lives Transformed team seizes opportunities to promote justice and supportive legislation by advocating for the needs of Combat Female Veterans (CFVs) and their families- at the local, state, and national levels.
The mission of our Legacy Angel project is to honor Combat Female Veterans through the collection, preservation, and telling of their stories. Special emphasis is given to our aging Women Warriors.
Starting in 2019, we will honor and celebrate the service of Outstanding Combat Female Veterans of North Carolina at our First Annual “Women of Combat” Event
Transition. Education. Advocacy.
