Blue Star Families was founded by military spouses in 2009 to empower families to thrive as they serve. They are committed to strengthening military families by connecting them with their neighbors—individuals and organizations—to create vibrant communities of mutual support. BSF believes we're all stronger when we take care of one another.
Their research is raising the nation's awareness of the unique challenges of military family life. With the help of neighbors across the country, Blue Star Families is overcoming the isolation and alienation of frequent moves, deployments, and reduced support from the government. Their innovative programs are solving specific challenges for military families, including fighting economic insecurity with resources that foster spouse career development, creating family strength with rich family programming, and providing critical peer support for caregivers, whose numbers are only increasing.
