The planets were in complete alignment over the Mother’s Day weekend as dedicated local organizations joined forces to celebrate moms and all women who nurture and sacrifice with the love of a mother’s heart.

Operation Sisterhood, in partnership with Community Hope and Family Connections, united in solidarity with 30 female veterans from all US Military branches and ranks, for an afternoon of camaraderie at McLoone’s Boat House in West Orange.

Special thanks to the Northern New Jersey Black Nurses Association and Avison Young who provided beautiful gifts to our vets and their children.

Now in its fifth year, Operation Sisterhood, a therapeutic peer support and advocacy program of Cornerstone Family Programs in Morristown, is focused on the unique challenges of female veterans.

Operation Sisterhood wishes to express its deepest gratitude for grant funding and support from the Healthcare Foundation of New Jersey, Merck Foundation Neighbor of Choice and Affinity Federal Credit Union Foundation.

For information about Operation Sisterhood and our peer support groups, please contact Elizabeth Meyers, program manager.
