Blue Star Families
We strengthen military families every day. Through career development, caregiving, and our leading research on military family life, we're striving to better understand and provide solutions to the challenges facing today's military families.
Semper Fi Fund
The Semper Fi Fund provides urgently needed resources and lifetime support for wounded, critically ill and injured members of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families. Case managers from the Semper Fi Fund work one-on-one with service members and veterans in order to understand and support their individual needs right now and throughout their lifetime. We keep our overhead low so our impact on the lives of service members and veterans is greater. The Semper Fi Fund has been awarded the highest ratings from watchdog groups: an A+ from CharityWatch - one of only two veteran nonprofits to receive this rating last year - and six consecutive "4-Star" ratings from CharityNavigator, an achievement attained by only 3% of rated charities.
Military and Veteran Caregiver Network
Nearly 6 million Americans care for wounded, ill and injured military service members and veterans of the pre- and post-9/11 eras. These hidden heroes, which include parents, spouses, children, extended family members, friends and battle buddies, are often overwhelmed. They face significant challenges including scattered resources, isolation, poor health and emotional stress. The MVCN supports caregivers of all ages, eras, and stages, offering peer support and access to partner organizations' resources and services, with the goal of increasing caregivers' connected-ness, hopefulness, wellness, knowledge, and skills.
