Women Veterans Program

The Illinois Department of Veterans’ Affairs supports all Illinois veterans whether they are long-time veterans, new transitioning veterans, or service members on active duty. Of particular note, our women veterans have long served in various critical roles in our military, and although a small percentage of the veteran population overall, this group is very skilled, adaptable, and strong. Through our Women Veterans Program, we hope to serve the woman veteran in any way possible, addressing each of her unique concerns - developing programs, community collaborations, opportunities and connections to help equip and empower her to grow personally and strengthen the woman veteran presence in Illinois.
