MILITARY FAMILIES GIVE THEIR ALL TO KEEP US SAFE. LET'S RETURN THE FAVOR.
Our military, which deploys around the world to protect our nation, is an all-volunteer force. Those who choose to serve on our behalf willingly make the deep sacrifices that military service requires. For those of us who haven’t served in the military or been part of a family with an active duty service member, it can be hard to visualize just how difficult military family life can be.
• frequent moves and the resulting isolation
• family separation during long deployments
• childcare and schooling challenges
• lack of employment for spouses
• financial difficulties
• caregiving for their wounded warriors
Military families are extremely proud to serve all Americans, and work hard to stay strong while facing the added burdens of military life. What keeps them strong is support from all of us.
Blue Star Families was founded by military spouses in 2009 to empower military families to thrive as they serve by connecting them with their neighbors – individuals and organizations – to create strong communities of support.
Your donation goes straight to supporting our landmark research into the challenges facing military families and our programs to solve those challenges, including spouse employment training and job placement, family activities, caregiver support and helping military families get connected and supported in their communities. We're touching more than 1.5 million families every year with these efforts.
Through our research and program partnerships, we're ensuring that wherever American military families go, they can always feel connected, supported and empowered to thrive.
Let's show our military families how much we appreciate their service by giving back to them. We're all stronger when we take care of one another!
