Military Sisterhood Initiative Connects Women Veterans During COVID-19

"I couldn't make this self quarantine, without this website. It's a lifeline, to real women." -Marilyn

For women Veterans who feel isolated, online communities offer a great place to connect. The Military Sisterhood Initiative, or MSI, is one such community for women Veterans and female active duty service members.

Military Sisterhood Initiative

MSI is a private social platform forging a national peer support community for women of the military

MSI offers a safe and welcoming online space for military women to connect with their sisters, which is valuable in moments like these when face-to-face meetings are not possible.

As a private online community, MSI serves as a place to congregate, share, learn, grow, give/receive, and - once things go back to normal - find meet-up opportunities with military sisters near them.

By joining MSI, women can:

  • Create a profile and connect with other military sisters near them or across the country to build one-on-one relationships.
  • Ask for help when they need it and offer support when their sisters are in need.
  • Engage in discussions and activities around different monthly topics and weekly challenges.
  • Post and find events, resources, and stories relevant to women Veteran growth and empowerment.

Developed and managed by Challenge America, a national veteran 501(c)3 nonprofit, MSI was designed by and for military women. Zaneta Adams - Army Veteran and Director of the Michigan Veterans Affairs Agency - had the original vision for the Sisterhood and helped to put the pieces in place to make it a reality. Challenge America then partnered with Global consultancy firm, Acumen Solutions, to design the MSI platform.
