Peace Garden Dedication AnnouncementPEACE GARDEN
In partnership with the Town of Greenburgh, New York and the Greenburgh Public Library, the Foundation has proposed the design and construction of a pocket size garden that will publicly honor the contributions of the over 2 million women who have sacrificed to keep our nation safe.  It will be a place that all community members can enjoy while finding peace while reading, meditating, or just sitting among the beautiful plants.

The Foundation’s hope is that this Peace Garden will be used to encourage other communities throughout the United States to use some of their public space to honor their women veterans.

Women who served in the US Military have unique needs for healthcare, housing, employment and childcare in addition to needs shared with their male colleagues.

VISION

The Barbara Giordano Foundation, Inc. is committed to being recognized as a premiere holistic wellness resource that addresses the unique emotional, physical and personal needs of women veterans throughout the United States.

MISSION

The Barbara Giordano Foundation, Inc. is committed to providing women veterans with holistic wellness tools that address the unique challenges they face after transitioning from military service.

Get involved and help those who have sacrificed so much for us and our country.
