Lady Vets Connect was created by Sherry Whitehouse to connect Lady Veterans and supporters.
Sherry was searching for a place to begin monthly meetings and Anita Shimfessel, VFW Post 2728 first female post commander out of Winchester, KY, immediately offered a space at the VFW. Since they we have been connecting across the state of Kentucky and beyond! We are also partnered and supporting Sheppard’s Hands, a 501c3 Non-Profit. Sheppard’s Hands was founded by Phyllis Abbott and is providing a home for Lady Veterans in Lexington, KY. Please click link to learn about Sheppard’s Hands!,
Since then, we established our Personal Mission: Honoring, Serve, and Support Aging Veterans and Homeless Veteran Women.
We were also able to establish the three pillars we wanted our group to represent to be successful support within the Veteran community. Honor, Serve, and Support.
