Happy New Year!

The Division for Women Veterans Affairs at Calvet is growing! Four work study students joined our team in December 2018 and they are busy. If someone you know is interested in becoming a VA work-study student at Calvet, please have them apply by contacting womenveterans@calvet.ca.gov or (916) 653-1402.

With the extra assistance in the Division, we will have more opportunities to expand outreach, advocacy, support, and information to women veterans.

Our first priority is restarting our bi-monthly Statewide Webinars, beginning in February 2019. These webinars discuss events, services, resources, and benefits for women veterans in California. Find more information about our Statewide Webinars here.

Springtime means lots of travel to great women’s events throughout the state, especially celebrations for the month of March as Women’s History Month and Women’s Military History Week in the third week of March.

If you have events you’d like to share with CalVet Women Veterans, or have questions about benefits and resources, contact us at (916) 653-1402 or womenveterans@calvet.ca.gov. Like us on Facebook too!
