Women's Groups

FEMALE VETERANS MONTHLY SUPPORT GROUP

We are currently operating a Female Veteran Program at Easterseals Massachusetts.  In addition to our other services, our Female Veteran Program offers women Veterans and service members of all eras a place to gather, share information and discuss their experiences together in a place where everybody has served. Often, participants are amazed that their experiences are very similar to the others in attendance. We also refer participants to other Easterseals MA programs, such as the Military and Veterans Services program, as needed for individual and family support.

Our women's support group meets monthly with the goal of fostering a positive and safe environment where female Veterans can gather and openly share information and experiences specific to the female Veteran demographic.  These sessions provide unique learning experiences through the incorporation of various presenters. So far we’ve had presenters teach classes on things like self defense, mindfulness, and financial planning.

When and Where? Visit the Veteran's Program Facebook page for updates on the program and upcoming meeting details.

Join our closed Female Veterans Support Group on Facebook, where female Service Members and Veterans from Massachusetts can interact and share their experiences.

If you have any additional questions about the application process, please do not hesitate to contact Adam Costello at acostello@eastersealsma.org or (508) 751-6312.
