Massachusetts Women Veterans Network 

The Executive Office of Veterans Services manages the Massachusetts Women Veterans Network, a peer group dedicated to empowering women veterans, ensuring their voices are heard, their contributions acknowledged, and their well-being enhanced through education, advocacy, and collaboration.

National Non-Profits

Active Veterans with Answers*

Provides information services and guidance through seminars, briefings, and conferences which are meant for women, homeless, disabled veterans and their family members. Active Veterans with Answers (AVWA) helps navigate the process of transitioning from the military to civilian life.

Blue Star Families*

Serves as a bridge between the families of servicemen and women and housing, emergency, education and other support services.

Code of Support Foundation (Free case coordination assistance to providers & veterans)*

We are the leading memorial and education center honoring the commitment, contributions and experiences of servicewomen. Three million women have served in or with the Armed Forces since the American Revolution. By contributing names and information to our Register, you can help us record and preserve stories that will otherwise be lost to history and unknown to future generations.

DAV Transportation Network for Veterans*

We are dedicated to a single purpose: empowering veterans to lead high-quality lives with respect and dignity. We accomplish this by ensuring that veterans and their families can access the full range of benefits available to them; fighting for the interests of America’s injured heroes on Capitol Hill; and educating the public about the great sacrifices and needs of veterans transitioning back to civilian life.

Fallen Heroes Project (Portraits for Families)

The primary purpose is to provide information for Gold Star families (those who have lost a loved one due to the war on terror) on how to request a portrait from Michael Reagan of their fallen hero.  Families can click on the “Request a Portrait” link to find this information.

Honor and Remember (Flag for Families)

To perpetually recognize the sacrifice of America’s military fallen service members and their families. The organization pays tribute to all military lives lost, not only while serving on active duty but also as a result of serving. Military deaths in all wars or conflicts and all branches of service from our nation’s inception are recognized.

A Million Thanks

Provides support and appreciation to active and veteran military men and women through sending letters and granting betterment of life wishes, as well as providing higher education scholarships to their children. A Million Thanks has partnered with major companies and celebrities, such as General Motors, Shutterfly, Southwest Airlines, NASCAR, Gary Sinise, and Jessica Simpson, all in an effort to raise awareness.

The Mission Continues (Community Volunteerism)

Connects veteran volunteers with under-resourced communities. Our programs deploy veteran volunteers to work alongside nonprofit partners and community leaders to improve educational resources, tackle food insecurity, foster neighborhood identity, and more.

Paralyzed Veterans of America

PVA was founded by a band of service members who came home from World War II with spinal cord injuries. These wounded heroes made a decision not just to live, but to live with dignity as contributors to society. Since 1946, Paralyzed Veterans of America has been on a mission to change lives and build brighter futures for our seriously injured heroes. We’ve had a single-minded mission—to empower our brave men and women to regain what they fought for: their freedom and independence.

A Soldier's Child

Provides birthday celebrations, summer camps, mentorship programs, and facilitating in secondary/college scholarships for children of fallen servicemen and women from all U.S. military branches. A Soldier's Child (ASC) Foundation honors the children of our fallen American defenders of freedom by celebrating their birthday every year through the age of 18.

SoldierStrong (Prosthetics)

Small goods. Large impact. From this simple ethos, SoldierStrong began its journey of helping the men and women of the armed services through theirs. Along the way, we’ve developed into a veterans non-profit organization with a national profile that now stands at the forefront of efforts dedicated to improving the lives of our nation’s heroes.

Veterans Authority

We believe the most dedicated servants to America – our veterans – are systemically underserved and marginalized. While our country remains a global superpower, the men and women who serve and defend us struggle to get basic support when they return home.
