Returning from military combat missions and various local activations is never easy for anyone, but when female service members return, many are facing additional stresses related to their roles as caregivers and primary or sole breadwinners. Reintegrating service-women are facing a multitude of challenges beyond those of their male counterparts and the resources available to assist them are often scare and inadequate.
Women represent the fastest growing veteran population making up nearly 15% of the military and that percentage is expected to double by 2021. In New Jersey alone, there are roughly 33,000 female veterans who, having served in national emergencies and global conflicts, are now returning home to unexpected circumstances. Currently available tools and programs are still largely male-centered and typically fail to address the unique needs of women service members.
