Services to women veterans in Northeast Ohio
Women veterans have greater homelessness risks than male veterans, and their homeless numbers are rising. PTSD, hypertension and depression are the top three reported health issues among women veterans. (U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs). Our Firm Foundations program provides a safe environment for the women to address their issues through the support groups, specific group sessions and our Strengthening the Inner Me" workshops. Our case management assists in helping to navigate resources that will provide the employment, education and other goals of the program participants.
Services to formerly incarcerated women in Northeast Ohio
The major issues that women face after release from prison are: Re-establishing a home and family life, including regaining legal and physical custody of children; finding affordable housing; securing employment that pays a sufficient income; and meeting other basic needs. Our Strengthening the Inner Me" program that we take into the Northeast Ohio Reintegration Center helps prepare the women for reentry into their community. The first phase of assistance is providing shared living housing, if needed, and assistance in gaining skills that will equip the women to obtain employment that can lead to a career.
