Blue Star Chapters

A Social Impact Model

What are Blue Star Chapters?

Our Chapters facilitate engagement opportunities that create cross-sectoral dialogue between military, Veteran, and civilian communities, which can foster awareness and understanding of military and Veteran lifestyle challenges. Together with our Blue Star Partners, we are building thriving communities of mutual support.

Military-connected families move frequently — every two to three years on average. Moving often lands these families far from friends and extended family, leaving them isolated from support networks and with a lack of “belonging” to their community, which can have negative effects on their overall well-being.

Therefore, when our Military Family Lifestyle Survey found that about half of military families did not feel a sense of belonging to their local civilian community, it became clear that a purposeful model was required to fundamentally improve their well-being at the local level.

Supporting military and Veteran families strengthens your local community!

Military families in this community are looking for opportunities to make connections and have a sense of belonging. The activities, volunteer opportunities, events, informational sessions, and career support programs demonstrate that military families are not invisible or forgotten.
