Blue Star Families represents active duty service members, Guard and Reserve, recent veterans, and their families and as such, embodies the broadest, community-level “face” of our nation’s military community. Through programs that address spouse employment, an issue of top concern for today’s military families, whole family wellness and education, BSF provides the opportunity for an immediate and direct impact on critical issues facing today's modern military families.
Blue Star Families leads military family members towards opportunities to build strength in individuals, families and communities.
Furthermore, we champion our families so that they too can take on leadership roles in their communities. Our chapter directors are an example of this.
For example, the Blue Star Families Leadership Fellows Program is central to our spouse employment focus. Through this program, Blue Star Families builds capacity within our organization and provides much needed employment to military spouses through corporate sponsors. There is currently no other family support organization (or within the Department of Defense) providing this type of groundwork for military family resiliency and empowerment.
Through this and other programs, we are committed to leading military families to create the best possible life for themselves!
