Helping Michigan's Women Veterans

 

Over 46,000 women veterans currently live in Michigan. Many may not think of themselves as "veterans" because they may not have served in wartime or in a combat-specific role, But, if a woman served in the military, she is a veteran! We are partnering with many community and regional organizations to raise the profile of Michigan women veterans.

For help for Michigan veterans and their families in accessing federal benefit programs, state services and local resources 24/7, call 1-800-MICH-VET or 1-800-642-4838.  The Michigan Veterans Affairs website is https://www.michiganveterans.com/ .

Another way to link to services is to attend a Stand Down, an event providing supplies, services and recognition to veterans who need some assistance.  Assistance can include food, clothing, health screenings, benefits counseling and referrals to other assistance such as health care, housing solutions, employment, substance use treatment and mental health counseling.
