Advocacy & Outreach for Women Veterans’ purpose is to support the Michigan Veterans Affairs Agency
with outreach activities for the 44,000+ women of the military that live, work, and raise families in
Women are serving at higher rates than ever before and in combat roles, which leads to different
challenges when transitioning out of the military. Women veterans are 2-4 times more likely to be
become homeless than non-veteran women, are 1.8 times more likely to die by suicide than non-
veteran women, and 1 in 4 screens positive for military sexual trauma. Women who have served in the
military often do not connect with their identity as veterans and in return, are not connected to the
benefits they have earned through their military service. The objectives of Advocacy & Outreach for
Women Veterans are to educate the public and connect women to their identity as veterans, to benefits
earned through service, and to a community that supports them. Outreach activities will include a
variety of community events, conferences, retreats, and listening sessions statewide.
