BENEFITING: FINAL SALUTE
Current statistics show that there are approximately 55,000 homeless women veterans throughout the United States-and this number continues to grow every year. The risk of women veterans becoming homeless is four times greater than male veterans. Yet, these women and their families continue to be under-served after having made great sacrifices for our nation. Final Salute, Inc has been created to support women veterans to reestablish themselves in their communities by offering housing and greater access to resources in order to achieve a greater sense of independence. As a woman veteran myself, I have been privileged with a strong support system through my extended family. As I continue to integrate myself within my community after my most recent deployment 6 months ago, I am grateful to know there are programs like Final Salute, Inc that enable women to regain their identity and their lives. This fundraiser is created for those women that were not as lucky as I. They are sisters, daughters, mothers, wives, that have stepped forward as part of the 0.5% of our country's men and women who have served. They have given so much for us-can we give back to them? It takes only $25 to provide a woman veteran and her children with safe and suitable housing. Everyone deserves a "welcome home" after a long journey, and women veterans deserve a sense of peace to come home to. Thank you for considering donating to women veterans, your sacrifice will not go unnoticed or unappreciated. Thank you for your support!
