Summer Greetings Everyone! (July 28, 2017)
WOW! A lot has been happening with Women Veterans of New Mexico. Let’s get right to it with a rundown.
What we’ve been doing:
• “Serving She Who Served” is our new Motto. This more accurately reflects our Mission.
• Membership is growing slow and steady thanks to Members hosting our Information (Meet & Greet) Table at events across the state, as well as, folks who are finding us on line. Meeting attendance has doubled.
• WVNM has participated in 10 events in New Mexico since January.
• Facebook and web traffic has more than doubled since January! Thanks to our WebMaster Debi Smith and Facebook Manager Rashada Parks. Check out the new webpage and “Like” us on Facebook.
• Members of the Board have attended many statewide meetings with VA and NM DVS representatives bringing women veterans issues to the forefront.
• We have partnered with NM DVS holding 2 Women Veterans Expos (Espanola & Las Vegas)
• We were awarded a $5,000 grant from Rotary Del Norte for our Supportive Services for Women Veterans.
• We have held 3 Membership meetings and one Membership get together since January.
• Our Supportive Services for Women Veterans Committee has helped many women veterans in need with food, rent, yard work, car repairs, move-in supplies, as well as, referrals for other benefits and services.

Equine Therapy Connections and Southwest Horsepower Offering Free Activities

EAP is a powerful, non-traditional experiential therapy which guides the clients to learn about themselves and others through the use of horses. Clients participate in hands-on therapeutic activities designed and facilitated by a Licensed Mental Health Clinician and an Equine Specialist to address their treatment goals. The therapies are tailored to fit each client’s needs and focus on the relationship between the client and the horse(s). This interaction often tends to mirror personal life issues, behaviors and attitudes. This effective and unique therapeutic method serves to bypass the intellect and facilitates a healing internal emotional connection. All work is provided by an EAGALA Certified team.
FREE monthly workshops with horses offered from 9am-2:30pm
Lunch, snacks and drinks provided. Enjoy activities in nature with horses. For more info, see the flyer or www.ETCNM.org

Horses For Heroes - New Mexico, Inc.

Our program is tailored to each individual participant and is designed to help men and women veterans and active military to develop new skills, re- sharpen others, and reshape attitudes needed to transition into civilian life. Our programs assist veterans to refit, regroup and recalibrate the soul of warriors through the way of the horse. The program’s focus is on resiliency and Post Traumatic Healing. These two elements work in natural alignment as we help to educate, rehabilitate, and most importantly empower veterans by supporting them in their journey for healing.
