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)

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 and meeting other basic needs; securing employment that pays a sufficient income; creating a new social network that may or may not include intimate relationships; fulfilling the multiple conditions of a parole plan, including continued sobriety, if not recovery, from alcohol or drug addiction; and negotiating the stigmatized perception of women ex-prisoners by the general public-potential employers, landlords, and community members.
