Soldier On Permanent Women Veterans Housing to Open This Winter

By Jack GuerinoiBerkshires Staff

Katie Doherty said she did not think she deserved the dedication but was happy to accept it on behalf of the women who work for Soldier On and the women they serve.
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Soldier On supporters and stakeholders toured the Katie Doherty Veterans Village on Friday afternoon that is slated to be move-in ready in early February. 
 
Soldier On knows the importance of having a home and with the near completion of the village for women veterans this sentiment will be accessible to all who have served in the military, not just the men.
 
"I was so compelled by the women I met and so compelled by their stories and what had happened to them," Soldier On consultant Katie Doherty said during a small gathering before the tour. "I thought we could do something to help them and restore them to the positions that they deserve." 
 
Construction began on the 14-unit structure in March 2019 near the existing men's permanent housing community. The units average 457 square feet and have a fully equipped kitchen, an open living space, a bedroom and a full shower.
