Directions For Life Inc. is a IRC 501 (C) (3) non-profit aimed at helping Women Veterans regain life to their fullest capacity. DFL is a two tier program. Tier one is comprised of a focus on our Women Veterans. Tier two are services which are provided to all regardless of military status and gender.
The vision and mission of DFL (Tier 1)is as follows:
There is an acute lack of information of readily available support services for women who leave our country’s armed forces. Too often, women have been the target of a variety of emotional and physical abuses while in service to this country.
Moreover, when these abused women separate from their service branch, they are often unaware of relevant support services which are available through the Veterans Administration or that are readily available in their communities. We estimate that there are more than five thousand (5000) women who might benefit from accessing these resources who are currently not receiving them.
The initial mission of Directions For Life is to identify these women, contact them through a variety of means available to us, and to inform them of the availability of support services for which they may be eligible. We will continue to monitor their progress to ensure that these women are receiving the benefit of needed services and will provide alternatives for community-based services if necessary.
Too often women are made to feel relegated to second-class status, and this is no less acute in any institutionalized setting, in this instance the armed forces. The notion of living in an egalitarian society is more an aspiration than a reality. This manifests in the lack of information regarding available support services to meet their specific needs. Moreover, Directions for Life is not only dedicated to performing outreach to these women and informing them of what is available to them, but also to the best of our ability ensuring that they are receiving and benefiting from these services and programs.
Throughout history, up until and including the times in which we live, women have been ignored, their rights marginalized, and their physical and emotional needs are unmet. Our goal is to address this situation to ensure that once separated from the armed forces, no woman is then left behind, ignored, and devalued.
Directions For Life intends to establish its own programs to provide a variety of services, including but not limited to counseling, life coaching, and one-on-one and group therapies to all women so that they may achieve stability in order that they can live productive lives.
