The VIPP Report: Female veterans have a new facility they can now call home

Lady Veterans Connect’s new facility will serve as a transitional home for female veterans where they can heal and participate in programs to prepare them to successfully integrate back into society. 

(Winchester, KY) According to the Department of Housing and Urban Development female veterans are two to three times more likely to be homeless than any other group in the United States adult population? [LVC is committed to changing these statistics by providing a safe place to heal and become the proud women they were while serving our country.] Kentucky is the home to over 24,000 women veterans with that number expected to double in the next five-years?

 Lady Veterans Connect’s new facility in Winchester is now open to receiving female veterans in our program. We had to cancel our official dedication due to COVID but it will be held at a later date. The home is located at 11400 Irvine Road, Winchester, Ky.

Phyllis Abbott, Executive Director says “We are trying to give female veterans a sense of comfort by giving them a place they can call home. This transitional housing [program] is vital for women who maybe dealing with PTSD and other forms of trauma. We hope you join us in serving the needs of our female veterans’ housing needs.” We are currently accepting applications for the Lady Veterans Connect Transitional Home for Female Veterans which can be found by visiting our site at http://www.lv-connect.org. We would like to thank all of our partners, supporters, and volunteers who have made this facility available..
