Our annual events always serve a community need, whether it's raising critical funds to support our programs, educating the community, or ensuring homeless veterans have a warm meal and essential items during the holiday season.
These events allow us to highlight the impact of our work, honor the veterans we serve, and thank our community partners. They provide opportunities for our community partners to showcase their support for local veterans.
In addition to our annual events, we also host ongoing community education forums, work with employers to coordinate custom veteran hiring events for veterans, and host professional development workshops for women veterans.

SHOUT! For Women Veterans Art Show
In 2008, we began hosting and annual art show to celebrate women who served in the military. The free event features art by women veterans and attracts more than 100 community supporters. The event also helps to raise awareness about the issues facing women veterans and explores the intersections of art, community, health and healing through photography, painting, mixed media, and the written word.
