Who We Are.
Since 2008, Grace After Fire has been serving the Veteran community by providing community resource navigation services, social events, and annual retreats to women Veterans and their families.
Empowered women can change the world.
Anyone can empower women. Here's a game that everyone can play. Can you guess who said these famous quotes?
From combat boots to work boots.
Women veterans will share their personal stories about making the bold career move to join the ranks of the commercial construction industry. Learn what it takes to bring a construction project to life.
Women veterans bring many strengths to the civilian workforce, such as leadership, teamwork, and problem-solving skills, as well as resilience and persistence. Education Development Center (EDC) has been funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) to examine how to leverage the unique strengths of women veterans to address barriers to their (re) engagement in the STEM workforce by hosting a virtual convening on this topic.
Take a peek at some of our past events.
Every month Grace After Fire hosts a variety of events and activities for our members and volunteers. Table Talk™ Color Me Camo and Coffee and Conversation are peer-to-peer support group programs specifically designed for women Veterans. The purpose of the programs are to empower women Veterans by facilitating meaningful conversations between peers and by forging strong bonds between women Veterans in their local communities.
