The challenges facing America’s military families are real and pressing. Since 2003, more than two million troops have been deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan. During this time, more than 2,000,000 children have sent one or more parents off to war. The unemployment rate for military spouses is a staggering 26% as quoted by the Department of Defense.
Our nation’s military families are the backbone of a strong and able United States military and these facts make is clear that they need support more than ever. BSF offers a robust stable of programs and resources to address the critical issues facing military families. From employment assistance (link to Careers) for spouses, to military child wellbeing and military family health, wellness and violence prevention, Blue Star Families is committed to strengthening our nation’s military families.
Powered by an active network of local Chapters across the globe, BSF’s unique model is unlike any of our peer organizations. Informed by both our virtual and Chapter members, we ensure the programs we support meet the current needs of military families. These programs and resources are then delivered to our members both through our Chapters and online.
