Congresswoman Visits ADVANCE to Discuss Female Veterans’ Issues
During Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard’s recent week in Hawaii, the ADVANCE Hawaii Women’s Program was honored to have her visit the site at its YWCA Fernhurst location on Friday, February 22, 2013. Those who were also in attendance included Military Affairs Liaison Nathan Miyake, Chief of Staff Jennifer Goedke, YWCA CEO Kimberly Frank and U.S.VETS staff – Darryl Vincent, Kimberley Cook, Jennifer Lloyd, Shelli McDow-Gillard, and Advisory Council Chair Kehau Amorin. It was a great opportunity for all parties to discuss female veteran issues, ranging from reasons for homelessness to what services are needed. While the visit itself was brief, it was indeed encouraging to know that Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard shares the same passion for finding solutions to veterans issues.
