What our members say

"This program has brought light to my life. I have learned that I am not alone and that other caregivers struggle as I do. This program has empowered me to ask for help when I need it. I have been able to learn techniques to help my husband with his PTSD and TBI. He and I have actually went on a couple of dates the last two months, which is the first in several years."

"I'm so glad that we have this opportunity to just come and connect. Please let BSF know how much we need this and how much we appreciate them bringing these caregiver chats to our community!"

"Thank you for everything you all at Blue Star Families do for us! We would be so lost without you all!! During our last PCS y’all even helped us with books for the kid's school and then the summer programs are so amazing! My kids enjoyed the museum and we cannot wait to visit the others that are part of {Blue Star Museums}!"
- Military Spouse, BSM Attendee
