Truth Lies and Character

Embrace the truth, reject lies and edify character as an excellent virtue.

Center for Women Veteran

Posted by James Jett on February 16, 2007

The mission of the Center for Women Veterans is to ensure that:

  • Women veterans have access to VA benefits and services on par with male veterans.
  • VA programs are responsive to gender-specific needs of women veterans.
  • Outreach is performed to improve women veterans’ awareness of services, benefits, and eligibility criteria.
  • Women veterans are treated with dignity and respect.

The Director, Center for Women Veterans, acts as the primary advisor to the Secretary of Veterans Affairs on all matters related to policies, legislation, programs, issues, and initiatives affecting women veterans.

Our Goals:

  • Identify policies, practices, programs, and related activities that are unresponsive and insensitive to the needs of women veterans, and recommending changes, revisions or new initiatives to address these deficiencies.
  • Foster communication among all elements of VA on these findings and ensuring the women veterans’ community that women veterans’ issues are incorporated into VA’s strategic plan.
  • Promote and provide educational activities on women veterans’ issues for VA personnel and other appropriate individuals.
  • Encourage and develop collaborative relationships with other Federal, state, and community agencies to coordinate activities on issues related to women veterans.
  • Coordinate outreach activities that enhance women veterans’ awareness of new VA services and benefits.
  • Promote research activities on women veterans’ issues.
