Support groups and organizations for women veterans gather to give a presentation of services Saturday afternoon.
The Northern Illinois Conference for Women Veterans met at Veteran's Memorial Hall in Rockford.
Workshops supporting women veterans varied from guest speakers and spiritual counseling, to a professional attire fashion show.
The free event was open to the veterans' families as well.
"We find other women veterans like myself who suffered with PTSD to help each other cope," said Deniece Senter, a veteran.
The conference included local, state and federal agencies.
