South Dade Women Veterans Alliance, Inc. was founded in November 2018 to address and support the needs of women veterans in our community. Our focus is on military women, past and present providing advocacy, support, and resources for them to heal, grow, and build resilient lives building strong families and communities.
South Dade Women Veterans Alliance, Inc. was created by its founder, Julie Robison, an Army Veteran. Having a desire to advocate on behalf of other women veterans living with Military Sexual Trauma and Intimate Partner Violence, Julie navigated through the VA Healthcare System to understand firsthand the complexities of its process. With this gained knowledge she has set out to make the process of navigating this system much easier and possible for her veteran sisters.
“The only women veterans organization in Miami-Dade County”, South Dade Women Veterans Alliance, Inc. addresses the need for resources and support for women who have served our nation and return with issues that are overlooked or dismissed.
