DEDICATED SUPPORT

Our promise to you

 

The current state of affairs is resulting in an increased need for mental wellness.  At WVS, we’re taking our mission seriously and implementing a program hotline to better serve you.

 

WVS Hotline: 248-519-2325

 

Launched in April of last year, the Woman Veteran Strong program provides peer support to our nation’s female heroes residing in Michigan.  Members are counting on us daily for safe virtual meetings, in-person recreational therapy opportunities and more.

 

We encourage you to reach out via the hotline number above.

 

Our team is on standby, providing information on WVS meetings and events.  We’re also vetting statewide resources that serve the female Veteran community.  If you run such a program or organization, please call us to verify your information in order to provide you with better referrals.
