The Quebec Veterans Foundation is proud to offer an innovative assistance program exclusively for women veterans, whose main objective is to meet their specific needs. The Barry F. Lorenzetti Foundation (FBFL) has generously agreed to make a major funding commitment for a three-year period.
The Veteran and Family Well-Being Fund provides financial support to private, public and academic organizations that strive to improve the lives of veterans and their families through innovative initiatives, research and projects. The QVF is a proud recipient of this grant offered by Veterans Affairs Canada and thanks to their important financial support, we will be able to perpetuate and continue to develop this program which makes a difference for veterans all over Quebec.
Through this initiative, we hope to help reduce the rate of isolation and suicide among women veterans by encouraging organizations to offer resources adapted to their unique needs. When transitioning to civilian life, women veterans need access to a support system that fits their reality.
