Veterans Leadership Program
Pennsylvania has the 4th largest concentration of veterans in the United States, as well as the 8th largest number of female veterans in the country. Allegheny County holds the largest Iraq and Afghanistan veterans’ population in the state of Pennsylvania. This region is experiencing significant growth and the demand for vital supportive services is increasing. Receiving a grant from Community Aces will VLP ensure that the right services are provided at the right time for these women veterans, so that they receive connections that will help them become self-sufficient, contributing members of society, and enjoy a better quality of life of which they deserve.
