The Women Veterans' Network of the Department of Veterans' Services, Commonwealth of Massachusetts, was established in 1997 with the vision of being the central resource for women veterans in Massachusetts. It has a database of 15,000 women veterans who receive a biannual newsletter with information on benefits, programs, and events for women veterans. To receive the newsletter, please use the contact below.

Mission Statement

  • Provide women veterans with information on federal, state and local benefits.
  • Expand awareness of the needs of women veterans and identify available health and human resources to meet those needs.


The Network hosts the Women Are Veterans Too! event each year to honor women veterans at the State House in Boston the week of Veterans' Day.

The Conference for Women Veterans is another statewide event sponsored by the Network.

Service Area

The Women Veterans' Network primarily serves women living in Massachusetts, but welcomes questions and feedback from women everywhere. The Network's coordinator is a member of the National Association of State Women Veterans' Coordinators (NASWVC). The NASWVC compiles a listing of state women veterans' coordinators across the country. If you are from another state, you can contact your state's coordinator to learn about veterans' programs and benefits in your state.
