Supported by Texas Veterans Commission grant, non-profit
Grace After Fire connects with women Veterans, launches new
program, thanks Texas cities for commemorations in March

(Fort Worth, TX) Following the lead of the 82nd Texas Legislature in designating March 2012 as Women Veterans Month, a number of cities are showing their support by doing the same.

The commemoration is just one of a number of awareness and educational efforts by the Fort Worth-based non-profit Grace After Fire, a group that works exclusively to support women Veterans returning from combat and transitioning to civilian lives.

Also in March, Grace After Fire will launch Table Talk™: Color Me Camo, a pilot peer-to-peer support program for women Veterans that focuses on gender specific topics through structured, positive interaction with trained facilitators and fellow peers. Table Talk is actively seeking additional women Veteran volunteers both as facilitators and participants.

The outreach programs have been made possible by a grant from the Texas Veterans Commission Fund for Veterans' Assistance. Outreach efforts are designed to involve more women Veterans in Grace After Fire and to inspire local communities to honor their local women Veterans and say thank you for their service, too.

(Fort Worth, TX) Kimberly Olson, Colonel, USAF (ret) and President/CEO of Grace After Fire, has announced that the Texas-based non-profit organization is hosting its first ever Women Veterans' Summit on Saturday, March 3, 2012, in Dallas to kick off Women Veterans Month, so designated by the 82nd Texas Legislature to name each March from 2011 to 2020 in honor of women Veterans from all service branches.

"The Summit, Discover Your Grace: The Power of Women Veterans, is an opportunity for women Veterans from all over the state to come together and receive valuable support," said Col. Olson. "We invite them to register now as space is limited. The Summit is also a stellar launch for both Table Talk®, our new peer-to-peer program, and Texas Women Veterans Month."

Grace After Fire developed the full-day Summit to be a dynamic, energetic conference for 150 Texas women Veterans from all branches of the United States military. Discover Your Grace: The Power of Women Veterans will feature experts leading focused sessions on issues of importance to Texas women Veterans. Grace After Fire designed all aspects to help women Veterans help themselves and to facilitate successful transition from deployment to individual self-empowerment and self-renewal and as a part of their families, the workforce, and their communities.
