Incarcerated Women Veterans

The group meets monthly inside WCCW and reaches out to women who have served in the Armed Forces, and now find themselves incarcerated. Women are introduced to resources that are veteran based, such as benefits for injuries occurring while in service, mental and physical health resources, employment and training, education, housing, and service organization membership. This group is sponsored jointly by Washington Department of Veterans Affairs, American Legion Post 204, and Department of Corrections.
