Healthcare and VA Disability Hotline

Healthcare and VA Disability Hotline

A new healthcare and VA disability hotline is taking calls and answering questions from women veterans. Staffed by knowledgeable VA employees, this telephone service is also available to families and caregivers of those who have served.

The VA hotline (1-855-VA-WOMEN) is the latest in a series of efforts by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to provide information to assistance to veterans who need help the most. This includes veterans experiencing a personal crisis, or who are risk of becoming homeless.

Although veterans can apply for VA benefits and receive information on-line, some do not have access to a computer, or know how to use one. Cell phones and landlines are readily available, of course, and provide women veterans with another way to contact the VA.

Chris searched and found the Empower Network and saw how he could bring help to 100's, 1000's and even tens of 1,000's in a powerful way. Although all of us have different challenges, Chris saw believes the Empower Network WILL work for anyone... and CLICKING RIGHT HERE is how it starts!!!
