Atlanta-based nonprofit is top-rated resource against veteran underemployment and unemployment
ATLANTA, GA (PRWEB) SEPTEMBER 14, 2017
Hire Heroes USA, the preeminent nonprofit providing employment services to transitioning U.S. military members, veterans and military spouses across the United States and around the world, announced today it has earned Charity Navigator’s coveted 4-Star rating – demonstrating strong financial health and commitment to accountability and transparency – for a third consecutive year.
By attaining Charity Navigator’s highest possible rating again in 2017, the national nonprofit has reinforced its continued commitment to donors and the clients it serves and, in the process, established itself as one of the highest-rated charity organizations in the country.
In a letter, Charity Navigator President and CEO Michael Thatcher said, “Only 17 percent of the charities we evaluate have received at least three consecutive 4-Star evaluations, indicating that Hire Heroes USA outperforms most other charities in America.” He continued, “The exceptional designation from Charity Navigator sets Hire Heroes USA apart from its peers and demonstrates to the public its trustworthiness.”
“Donors entrust us with funds to do one thing: help veterans and military spouses find jobs,” said Nathan Smith, Hire Heroes USA’s Chief Financial Officer and a Marine Corps combat veteran. “So that’s exactly what we do. At the same time, there is a basic premise we don’t run the ship aground. A third 4-Star rating from Charity Navigator reflects our duel commitment to the clients we serve and the donors who make our work possible.”
Through continued innovation and a keen focus on results, Georgia-based Hire Heroes USA has established itself as the top employment resource for thousands of transitioning military members, veterans and military spouses every year. To date, the nonprofit has helped more than 19,000 clients find meaningful careers in the civilian workforce, generating an estimated economic impact of more than $225 million. Since 2015 alone, the organization has experienced a remarkable 112 percent increase in client growth, due in part to its own success and increased referrals from client alumni.
Hire Heroes USA sets itself apart from other veteran service organizations by focusing exclusively on the issues of underemployment and unemployment affecting veterans and military spouses. The nonprofit’s free, personalized career coaching services include resume assistance, mock interviews, federal sector help, and job matching, as well as virtual career fairs. By aligning itself with employment partners that range from small businesses to Fortune 100 companies, the nonprofit also offers a job board that features thousands of career opportunities from companies that want to hire veterans.
Veterans who found employment with the assistance of Hire Heroes USA have said the following about the nonprofit’s services – Marine Corps E-3: “Working with Hire Heroes USA was definitely unlike any other experience I’ve had. From the very beginning, it was easy to tell that I wasn’t just another number and they actually cared about my success.” Army E-8, Recipient of Bronze Star and Purple Heart: “Having been in the military for 30 years made transitioning to the civilian world a monumental challenge. Hire Heroes USA helped me better understand the things I needed to do to land a job, and reinforced my confidence.” Air Force E-6: “I had trouble translating my military duties and responsibilities for my resume. I was also not very confident with the interview portion of job searching. It meant a lot that these services are available at zero cost.” Marine Corps W-4: “I tell every military member I meet who is going, or will soon be going, through transition about Hire Heroes USA. I tell them how valuable the resources can be. The resume help alone is worth anyone’s time.”
