What we aim to solve

Women who are firefighters, police officers, and military, see and experience horrific things in the course of their careers. The anxiety, stress and trauma they deal with can be overwhelming. Military spouses also have to cope with the challenges of being a caregiver. They serve too. Many of these warriors have experienced Post Traumatic Stress, Military Sexual Trauma, bullying, depression, sexual harassment, physical abuse, suicidal ideation, and more. Studies show that female veterans are more likely than male veterans to be diagnosed with mental health problems and they are five times more likely than nonveteran women to commit suicide. Women in these high-stress occupations are taking their own lives at an increasingly staggering rate. They share devastating common experiences and situations with little help and nowhere to turn. They need our help now.

Warrior Women United is a national nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization which supports women who are active duty military, law enforcement, first responders, veterans or military spouses. It is an organization for them. All of them. Our goal is to establish a sisterhood that provides a safe and supportive environment for healing, for learning ways to overcome challenges, find the peace within, improve well-being, and transition to civilian life. The very best life possible. All of these women are underserved and need a strong support network to cope, heal, flourish, and live their best lives. Our team is comprised of experienced, caring individuals who are servant leaders that want to help their sisters thrive and succeed. We've been there and we get it. They serve their country and communities, now it's our turn to serve them.

It only takes a moment to change a life. Our experiential in-person and virtual programs are offered free to women who have served their country and their communities. Their struggles are our struggles. We owe it to them to provide a safe space and tools to deal with the anxiety, stress, and trauma they have experienced. The core strategy of Warrior Women United is to create a peer-to-peer support network, a sisterhood, to lift up each other and strengthen the bonds of service that unite these selfless women. Our programs include sessions on mindfulness, overcoming trauma, work-life balance, communication, journaling, art and equine therapy, career coaching, fitness, and much more. We offer convenient one day specialty workshops on a wide variety of creative topics, intensive weekend retreats, casual sisterhood meetups, a comprehensive annual conference, as well as a signature annual charity awards gala honoring those women who have gone above and beyond. All of our workshops, retreats, and meetups are free to qualified applicants and are conducted in comfortable, safe, and peaceful locations across the country.

Warrior Women United has established a network of partnerships with corporations, government, nonprofits, and other veteran service organizations who are stakeholders in helping us succeed with our mission. Our dedicated and committed team of volunteers includes members from all of our served groups - military, first responders, law enforcement, veterans, and military spouses. The community of support that surrounds our organization is extensive and passionate about our cause. We have the experience, the knowledge, and the proven methods to serve this nation's Warrior Women. Because they deserve it.

Our progress is measured by feedback and surveys from the program participants as well as their level of peer support for each other. This gives us key information needed to determine if we are making progress towards helping them live better lives. We encourage the sisterhood to stay connected and afford them opportunities for continued learning and development, both in person and online. Our Warrior Sister mentorship program pairs Warrior Women together to form one-on-one focused guidance. All of these efforts are tracked to identify positive trends and progress. Their successes are our successes and we celebrate their milestones.

We are a young organization and the first of its kind to be established nationally. Our outreach efforts have yielded enthusiastic partners and participants. We are currently serving women from coast to coast at primary locations in several states and envision Warrior Women United programs eventually expanding to every state. In addition to our in-person experiential programs, our virtual strategy will make our programs easily accessible to Warrior Women at any time and place, even in the comfort of their own homes. We have a growing library of general information and resources available, and are building a comprehensive portal of online content, including: videos, podcasts, tips, tools, and training modules. Women who have attended our programs are given access to the Members Only page, where they can continue their journey of learning and healing. We also hope to explore the benefits of virtual reality technology in the future.
