"The South Dade Women Veterans Alliance is an organization that truly cares for Veterans and their Families in the South Dade Community. I have participated in a couple of events, and I have witnessed how hard they work to take care of veterans. The familiar feeling and closeness to the community; the determination to make a difference, it is what drives this organization. Thank you for all your support and continue this excellent work."

"I had just moved to Miami from St. Louis, MO. August 5, 2021, and I knew no one and was here alone. Since I went to the event and connected with SDWVA South Dade Women Veterans Alliance and the fellow military women that run this organization, as well as other clients and people like me it has been great.

I no longer feel alone. It is great the planned events, and comradery that these ladies have for one another make it so easy to feel welcomed. I know they understand what I am saying and my perspective when speaking. Due to the outings, and events we have I can see places, and experience things I would not have without being a part of this group and organization. They give so much information and directions as well as connect you to where you need to go for personal assistance. I am so thankful to be a client of SDWVA and I look forward to continuing my journey with them."
