Her War, Her Voice and Courage Beyond teamed up to create Just Wait, a place where military spouses can empower, encourage, and inspire each other through their art and their stories.
Courage Beyond‘s purpose is to empower service members, veterans, and their loved ones by providing confidential, no-cost programs and services to help them face the challenges of life after military service. Their vision is for every service member, veteran, and their loved one to have the community support, expert help, and integrated services they need to live healthy and fulfilling lives.
Courage Beyond provides confidential, no-cost programs and services to warriors and their loved ones facing post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and other invisible wounds of military service. Through a supportive online community, retreats, eGroups, face-to-face counseling services across the nation provided by their parent company, Centerstone Military Services, and a 24-hour crisis line, they empower service men and women and their loved ones to heal and thrive.
Courage Beyond is a program of Centerstone Military Services which is a part of Centerstone, one of the nation’s largest not-for-profit provider of community-based behavioral healthcare. Their smaller size allows them to be nimble and respond quickly to the demands of their community and their attachment to Centerstone gives them access to some of the best data analytics tools and healthcare experts in the industry.
Her War, Her Voice was created by two Army spouses to be a haven for those dealing with issues revolving around military separations and the emotional and logistical issues that occur.
This support group originated online. It was designed to be across all branches; not affiliated with rank or Unit/Brigade; and a steadfast support group where no judgment was allowed when interacting with fellow fighters. This approach proved not only successful but also imperative as multiple deployments accrued and our military faced issues never seen in our wartime history.
Her War, Her Voice has always been dedicated to hearing someone when she needs a shoulder and standing tall with her during her weakest moments. We choose to empower women by building the bonds of sisterhood across the branches. This unity not only creates a ripple effect for support, but also creates the opportunity for these empowered women to “pay it forward.” Hand to hand, we choose to stand and change our world.
The ultimate goal of HWHV is to unite as many women as possible in our military spouse world in order to create positive change, inspire our community, and uplift one another in strength and understanding as we move forward in this life.
