BENEFITING: FINAL SALUTE
Hello all!! I am Silvia, most of you know me... a lot of you don't. I would like to take the time to let you know of an opportunity to help women all over! Helping homeless veteran women, many are not as fortunate as some of us. Me, being a veteran of 11 years have been by far lucky and wish to extend my hand, out to women that have been through the life I have lived, perhaps more than me, maybe even less. Besides that they have signed that contract and have served! The percentage of women to men in the military is low, higher than before but still does not compare to the men that are in. Therefore our women in the military are very valuable, and those who are out, I thank all my sisters who have served, and those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice. Please donate if you can, a little can go a long way. Thank you and God bless.
Final Salute Inc. was founded in 2010 by a Female Veteran and cancer survivor who became aware of the large number of homeless female Veterans. There are currently over 13,000 homeless female Veterans nationwide. Over half of all homeless female Veterans are single mothers. Final Salute Inc. was formed to fill a critical need for an organization that was actively engaged and designed to meet the evolving and unique needs of homeless Female Veterans and their children. While our Veterans are no longer serving on the front lines in foreign wars, our homeless female Veterans are at the back of the line when seeking housing and other supportive services.
Final Salute Inc. is the only organization in the DC Metro Area and only one of a handful across the nation that specifically supports the housing needs of homeless Female Veterans and their children.
