The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s Hiring Our Heroes (HOH) initiative launched in March 2011 as a nationwide effort to connect veterans, service members, and military spouses with meaningful employment opportunities. Working with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s vast network of state and local chambers and strategic partners from the public, private, and non-profit sectors, our goal is to create a movement across America in hundreds of communities where veterans and military families return every day.
Every warrior has a next mission. We know that the transition to civilian life is a journey. And for every warrior, family member, and caregiver, that journey looks different.
We are here for their first step, and each step that follows. Because we believe that every warrior should have a positive future to look forward to. There’s always another goal to achieve, another mission to discover. We are their partner in that mission.
Military Community and Family Policy, or MC&FP, is the office of the Department of Defense that addresses quality-of-life issues to help service members and their families live their best military lives. MC&FP offers a suite of programs, tools and services – including Military OneSource – that connect the military community to resources they can use every day, from relocation planning and tax services to confidential non-medical counseling and spouse employment.
Frequent moves and deployments make it challenging for military families to set down roots, make friends, find new employment and take care of their families. Blue Star Families is helping military families overcome these challenges and thrive in their communities as they serve.
More than 1.5 million military family members around the world have benefited from Blue Star Families' programs.
