"Barbara is such a sweet and caring lady. I have received one of the Mary kay products, but I haven't had a chance to use it yet. This program is so great because there is someone who cares and I am able to talk to." -Heather
Women of Valor provides support to female caregivers of Post 9-11 wounded, ill and injured service members. Our team of participating Team Angels focuses on providing self-care and educational support to our caregivers. They are often so busy caring for their wounded loved one that they forget to take time for themselves. While the focus is often on the veteran member, the Women of Valor Team focuses solely on the female caregiver to ensure they are pampered, loved, and receive the necessary supportive materials to help them along this journey.
Every female caregiver that registers for the program is carefully vetted to ensure eligibility before being approved for adoption. Once approved, the caregiver is adopted by a Team Angel who provides year-round support with an emphasis on major holidays and the caregiver's birthday and anniversary. Team Angels are also encouraged to regularly send cards of encouragement and occasional care packages to allow the caregiver a little time to herself. Additionally, the Women of Valor Team continuously partners with other caregiving organizations and experts to provide educational and networking opportunities to the caregivers within the program.
