WINCHESTER, Ky. (WTVQ) – According to Lady Veterans Connect, its center in Winchester is the largest center for women veterans in the United States. It says the center will serve as a transition home for lady veterans who are on the street or about to lose their home. Lady Veterans Connect says it is fully open to receive women veterans into the 12-month transition program.

Lady veterans connect says Sunday’s car show was lower on attendance than anticipated due to weather predictions but remains hopeful the show would be a success and future fundraisers in the fall will help support the organization.

“It’s important because it raises awareness to what our program is and what our purpose for being is and it’s all about how we’re taking care of our women veterans,” says Phyllis Abbott, executive director of Lady Veterans Connect.

Another car show in support of Lady Veterans Connect will be held on September 26th in Lexington. The Lady Veterans Connect week of valor celebrations will kick off November 5-6 at Masterson Station Park in Lexington.
