Hire Heroes USA Announces Partnership with CDC Foundation

Veterans Sought for Key Positions to Help in the Fight Against COVID-19

Hire Heroes USA, the nation’s leading employment nonprofit for veterans and military spouses, announces their partnership with the CDC Foundation to bring veteran talent into the fight against COVID-19.

As unemployment numbers rise nationwide from the impact of COVID-19, Hire Heroes USA remains committed to assisting the hundreds of veterans and military spouses who seek career support services each week. Recent survey results indicate that 70% of active Hire Heroes clients are concerned or very concerned about their employment prospects in the next two months. To quell fear and create opportunity, Hire Heroes USA is leveraging the power of collaboration through a partnership with the CDC Foundation. As an independent nonprofit, the CDC Foundation is the sole entity created by Congress to mobilize philanthropic and private-sector resources to support the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s critical health protection work. By partnering with Hire Heroes USA, the CDC Foundation aims to activate veterans to overcome the challenges of the Novel Coronavirus.

“Military veterans and spouses have the skills and experience to help any firm overcome challenges related to COVID-19,” said Ross Dickman, Hire Heroes USA Chief Executive Officer. “As the CDC Foundation seeks to empower their teams to deliver quality care and immediate impact, they have joined with Hire Heroes USA to find dependable, adaptable, and experienced military leaders for a variety of roles and functions. We are extremely proud to help the CDC Foundation as they respond to this pandemic, and we are proud of the continued service, sacrifice, and impact of our military veterans and their spouses.”

“The CDC Foundation recognizes the tremendous value and unique skill set that veterans and military spouses provide,” said Judy Monroe, MD, president and CEO of the CDC Foundation. “And, we are pleased to join with Hire Heroes USA to engage and source talented leaders for the open emergency response positions we are hiring for to help extend the work of state and local health departments in the fight against COVID-19.”
