Female Soldiers: Forgotten Heroes
Connecticut Community Bank employees and customers generously donated toiletries to support Female Soldiers: Forgotten Heroes during the week of May 13th- May 19th. Female Soldiers: Forgotten Heroes is Connecticut’s first and only community-based transitional home exclusively for homeless female Veterans and their young children. Since opening in 2011, the program helps female Veterans by meeting their needs for a safe, secure home and adequate food, and by empowering residents to move forward with their long-term goals: obtaining permanent housing, achieving financial stability, and working toward greater self-determination.
Thank you to all who participated!
