The mission of National Women Veterans United (NWVU) is to ensure that women veterans are made aware of and have access to information regarding their VA benefits and entitlements, including current or pending legislation that impacts those benefits. The group places special emphasis on at-risk and homeless women veterans to ensure that they have safe and immediate housing or shelter. The group advocates for improved service delivery and adequate services for women veterans in federal, state, city and county services. They monitor existing services, delivery and distribution of housing HUD VASH Vouchers. They also extend military leadership skills to community youth programs.
Illinois Community Women Veteran's Center provides immediate assistance for women veterans with special emphasis on at risk and homeless women veterans until they are attached to a long term service provider and ensure they are safe when dislocated, at risk or homeless.
