Founded in 2009 by military spouses with you in mind, we empower military and Veteran families to thrive by connecting them with their civilian neighbors — both people and organizations — to create strong communities of mutual support.
Blue Star Families: November Newsletter
As the weather is turning cooler at my house, I find myself welcoming fall colors, buying squash at the farmers’ market, and prepping the fireplace.
My children will be coming home for Thanksgiving break soon. While I’m looking forward to creating new memories with them, I’m remembering Thanksgivings of the past — separated during a deployment or thrown together after an unexpected move. Even a restaurant-made turkey can be good when you don’t expect too much and count your blessings!
Blue Star Families: COVID-19 Response
Because our military's mission readiness is negatively impacted when our service members are under threat from COVID-19, we're teaming up to protect you against the virus.
Racial Equity and Inclusion Initiative
"An important first step for our military families of color..." Through five impact areas—Research & Advocacy, Training, Leadership, Collaboration, and Community Impact—the initiative will gather new resources and focus the energy of Blue Star Families and a broad assembly of corporate, foundation, and nonprofit partners.
