This program area is intended to help chapters strengthen their veterans outreach programs within their respective communities. The objective is to encourage the active involvement of each MOWW chapter in activities within their local communities and nationally that support the Military Services and the veterans of those services across a range of areas, e.g., deployment and welcome home events, medical care, correction of records, employment counseling and veteran homelessness, and VA and other hospitals.
