Mission: The organization is for all military women to use revolutionary expressions to grow in dignity and honor. Our members empower themselves through a sisterhood created by mind, body, and heart healing. Our artistic advocacy is building a community of courage.
Programs: Operation harmony: athena's sisters partners with multiple community healers through groups like kentucky center for the arts and holistic nurse association to provide a day of free healing services for military women to methods such as reiki, aromatherapy, body talk, creative storytelling, drumming, and life coaching. Food and childcare are provided along with any materials necessary to conduct the workshops.
operation legacy: athena's sisters conducts a two day creative storytelling workshop to encourage military to share their stories using multi-media arts. All food, childcare, and materials are provided for participants.
2nd monthly meeting: athena's sisters has one closed meeting a month - meaning only military women are able to participate. We invite guest community artists to come and teach us a new art method, such as painting, weaving, zen tangling, etc. Athena's sisters provides food, childcare, and all art materials.
athena's sisters provides outreach to military women in order to share knowledge of resources available for mental and physical health services and create a strong social network; military women receive referrals that support sustainable change for mental and physical health, and have access to the resources.
Athena's Sisters is a wonderful organization !!!!! As a female veteran, and just recently out of the military I was looking for some like minded folks to socialize with. The meetings are awesome, I really enjoy the Arts and healing aspect of it , and the free meal they provide is great after a work, They have been a great help with me trying to navigate the VA system, I got involved back in July and have loved every minute.
