Women Veterans & Our Verdugo Community

Our goal is to unite community organizations such as the Verdugo Job Center, the local colleges and their veterans’ programs, veterans’ service organizations and community organizations like the YWCA to support the specific needs of women veterans returning to civilian work and life. Our success depends on women veterans themselves getting together and getting involved to determine what resources are needed and available for their job searches. This will be about communicating, sharing and working together to help insure that every female veteran finds the help she needs to 1. land a job that meets her needs 2. find assistance in balancing work and life 3. receive job training that is available to make her job-ready.
