WoVeN is a nationwide network of peer support groups specifically for women. WoVeN connects women Veterans of all eras and service branches and empowers them with information, education, and resources to improve their quality of life.
Each WoVeN group has 6-10 members and is led by two woman Veterans who have been trained as peer leaders. Groups meet weekly for 2 months. To help group members share and reflect on many different aspects of their life, each group meeting focuses on a new theme. These themes were hand selected with help from women Veterans. By building strong connections among women Veterans, WoVeN groups are designed to enhance wellness, relationships, and career satisfaction.
WoVeN group members also contribute to important research to help women Veterans! We want to know how participation in WoVeN impacts the lives of the WoVeN women who participate, so WoVeN women may choose to participate in a research study where they share information about their own experiences. Participating in the research component of WoVeN can help the WoVeN program—and other programs—best meet the needs of women Veterans.
