Military Spouse Program
The Hiring Our Heroes Military Spouse Employment Program aims to improve the lives of working military spouses by lifting them out of unemployment and underemployment. The program helps spouses achieve upward mobility in the workplace through networking events, online and in-person mentoring, and hiring fairs that are exclusively designed for military spouses.
The lifestyle of a military spouse instills in them a unique set of skills including resilience, adaptability, unparalleled dedication, and more. Every employer, whether they are a small business or a Fortune 500 company, can benefit from these traits. Our goal, with the help of our partners, is to bridge the gap between these talented military spouses and the business community.
