The WAM Project is a nonprofit for women veterans by women veterans. The WAM Project is a proud member of the GallantFew, Inc. family of organizations. Nobody understands women veterans more than other woman veterans. Our home base is Holly Ridge, NC with advisers located nationwide. We are loyal and committed women empowering other women. Our time on active duty is over, or coming to an end, but our camaraderie does not need to stop. We understand where you’ve been, we want to meet you where you are, and we will be here until the end. The WAM Project is here to assist in your transition from serving in our military to thriving in civilian life.
Unlike male veterans, we have a higher risk of being homeless.

What Does WAM stand for?
Women With A Mission – We are women veterans continuing our mission to serve country and community by guiding and being available for our sisters in arms. We have finished our service in the military, but that does not mean we stop being a family.
Daphne Bye (US Marine Veteran), WAM Project director says, “I saw there was a need for an organization that was focused on women veterans.” Bye continues, “I wanted to create a place for women veterans to feel safe and comfortable enough to reach out for help from other women veterans. Unlike male veterans, we have a higher risk of being homeless. Helping women veterans get back on their feet, as a career women, and guiding them back into the civilian sector is our ultimate goal.”
