As we observe Veterans Day, our nation pauses to honor, and thank, the men and women who made the decision to serve and protect our country. At Hire Heroes USA, every day is Veterans Day because of the work we do to ensure that they can successfully find a career in the civilian workforce. Here are some of the reasons why you should care, too:
- Because the need is real. Every year approximately 250,000 military members separate from the U.S. Armed Forces.
- Because finding a job is what veterans want the most when they leave their military careers.
- Because we don’t forget military spouses. Through our Serving Spouses℠ program, we also help these women and men, who face unique employment challenges due to frequent change of duty stations.
- Because our unique service delivery model is highly effective at putting veterans and military spouses to work. This year, we’ll reach another milestone – 30,000 lifetime hires since our founding.
- Because we have a holistic approach to the problem. Through our Employment Opportunities program, we partner with hundreds of employers, from small businesses to Fortune 100 companies, that want to hire veterans.
- Because we have an exclusive job board and virtual career fairs. This means we can connect employers directly with veteran and military spouse job seekers.
- Because our free employment services are constantly evolving to meet the needs of our clients. Today, our services are almost entirely virtual.
- Because our total focus is on employment. We are the leading veteran service organization specifically targeting unemployment and underemployment among veterans
- Because our staff really does care. Most of our team is comprised of veterans, military spouses and individuals from military families.
- Because Hire Heroes USA is an excellent steward of your donations. We are the highest rated veteran nonprofit organization on Charity Navigator and have a GuideStar Platinum Seal of Transparency.
- Because we owe them. Veterans and military spouses have made a sacrifice for our country, and they deserve to have gainful employment after they leave the military.
The reasons to support Hire Heroes USA’s work don’t stop there. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of veterans and their families. Check out our 11 Reasons campaign here.
