Thresholds

Free Women Veterans Film Screening on May 16

Service image & tag only

Please join us at a free screening of the documentary film Service: When Women Come Marching Home. The film portrays the courage of several women veterans as they transition from active duty to their civilian lives, a process that requires them to deal with trauma, invisible and visible injuries, and challenges in receiving benefits and care.

Through our Veterans Project, Thresholds has gained a keen understanding of the unique challenges women veterans face and the pressing need for women-centered veteran services. With the upcoming launch of the Women’s Veterans Health Project, Thresholds is striving to provide unparalleled community-based care for past and current servicewomen, working with the VA and other community partners to help them live stable and productive lives. We hope that you’ll join us for this powerful film and panel discussion to learn more about this worthy cause.
