She S.E.R.V.E.D Inc., is a service driven, charitable 501 (c) (3) organization developed to Support, Enhance and Restore Veterans Every Day. Intentionally founded on Veterans Day 2014, She S.E.R.V.E.D Inc., was designed to keep within the tradition of honoring and thanking women veterans for their dedicated and loyal service to their country and to ensure they know that we deeply appreciate the sacrifices they have made in their lives to keep our country free. Incorporated on 14 November 2014, She S.E.R.V.E.D Inc., had its humble beginnings as the vision of Jennifer Berry, an Army veteran and military spouse. Although She S.E.R.V.E.D Inc., caters to women veterans, we will not leave ANY of our battle buddies behind, meaning any veteran in need of assistance will be helped.
She S.E.R.V.E.D Inc., was established with the understanding that with the increased and extent of female service members' involvement in Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF) and Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF), in terms of both the number of women deployed and the scope of their involvement, is unprecedented. Although enormous progress has been made over the past 30 years in expanding the role of women in the military, including service in combat zones; services needed to assist our women veterans once they return home is little to none or unavailable, resulting in their frustration. Women veterans not only deal with limited, gender-specific services, but also often times deal with not being recognized as true veterans. Many of the issues encountered by women veterans during service has resulted in them being discharged from the military requiring them to often times seek employment in the civilian sector-another hurdle.
She S.E.R.V.E.D Inc., vision is to become a buffer for female veterans by ensuring that all interpersonal stressors experienced during and post deployment such as Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) following combat exposure, Sexual Assault, Sexual Harassment, Unemployment & Underemployment; Homelessness and all transitional, readjustment and emerging issues are highlighted and advocated for so they no longer go unnoticed for women veterans.
We Support women veterans by educating them about gender-specific benefits available, helping them to receive the benefits to which they are entitled and by connecting them to community resources whom are able to assist in providing those benefits. Every day, women in the military proudly serve our country, but when they return home they often do not receive the recognition, benefits, or services they have earned.
We Enhance women veterans by helping them during their transition into the civilian sector with our “Fatigues to Corporates” workshops, which will assist them in preparing for and securing a job; assist them in retaining their new positions, succeeding in the mainstream workplace as well as other helpful career tips to present themselves in the best possible light during job interviews. Our “Wall Locker” will provide them with new or gently used job interview attire; donations of suits, business attire, shoes and accessories (new and gently used), time, and financial support are all accepted!
We Restore women veterans by helping them with immediate needs, such as shelter, food, clothing, and transition aid through existing networks and resources. Offering financial assistance to low-income veterans, and serving as a navigation support for post women veterans as they transition into a civil lifestyle.
