Welcome - We Are Here For You
Women are often made to feel relegated to second-class status, and this is no less acute in institutionalized settings, including 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.
Today, as throughout history, 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 no woman is then left behind, ignored, and devalued.
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 1 is comprised of a focus on our Women Veterans.
- Tier 2 are services which are provided to all regardless of military status and gender.
Regardless of military status or gender, we are here for you.
Tier 1 - Services for Women Veterans
Too often, women are 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 in their communities. We estimate that there are more than five thousand (5000) women who might benefit from accessing these resources but who are currently not receiving them.
Directions For Life was established to combat the acute lack of information regarding readily available support services for women who leave our country’s armed forces.
First and foremost, the mission of Directions For Life is to identify and reach out to and provide assistance to women who have experienced abuse while serving in the military.
If you have seperated from the armed forces and are struggling with reintegrating into society, we can assist with helping you identify and apply for support services for which you may be eligible. We will then monitor your progress to ensure that you are receiving the benefit of needed services and we will provide alternatives for community-based services if necessary.
Directions for Life is dedicated to performing this outreach and informing you of what is available, but also to the best of our ability, ensuring that they are receiving and benefiting from these services and programs.
Tier 2 - Services for All
Today, you are one step closer to a new you, where you feel empowered and on a positive path to growth and well-being.
In our Tier 2 program, open to all, our goal is to help you uncover your true potential and lead a life that is worth celebrating. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life. By applying complementary approaches and techniques, we will unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life.
If you're looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or you're just ready to move in a new direction in your life, we look forward to working with you to achieve your goals. We empower lives one problem at a time by working together.
Let us help you regain life to its fullest capacity.
Directions For Life is also establishing 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.
