Foundation for Women Warriors receives $50,000 grant
Foundation for Women Warriors, which operates partly out of North County, received a $50,000 grant from the Rancho Santa Fe Women’s Fund for its Women Veteran Emergency and Transition Services programs
Foundation for Women Warriors, a Vista-based nonprofit, received a $50,000 grant from the Rancho Santa Fe Women’s Fund for its Women Veteran Emergency and Transition Services programs in San Diego County.
The nonprofit provides services to female veterans and their children as they make the transition from the military to civilian life throughout Southern California.
The grant is slated to provide female veterans with rental assistance and child care, along with other services through its emergency services program.
“This award comes at a time when all costs are rising: housing, child care, gas and other basic necessities. This grant will allow us to meet the growing needs of an increasing women veteran population in San Diego,” said Marine Corps veteran Jodie Grenier, CEO of Foundation for Women Warriors.
The foundation provides stipends, for example, to offset child care costs, so veterans can keep their jobs or work on a college degree or certificate program and get back into the job market.
