Executive Summary

Blue Star Families, in conjunction with collective impact partner Be The Change, Inc., proposes to have twenty (20) AmeriCorps (Military Spouse Service Corps)members who will provide family and community services to their local military family community at two military installations. We are in the process of confirming locations with the US Military.

At the end of the first program year, the AmeriCorps members will be responsible for outreach to approximately 3-5 veterans or family members per day in their local community (approximately 600 per volunteer, per year). The AmeriCorps members will leverage an additional 30 volunteers who will be engaged in raising awareness about resources and supporting employment mechanisms across the host states.

This program will focus on the CNCS area of Veterans and Military Families. The CNCS investment of $8,000 (not including the Segal education awards) will be matched with $24,000 in private funding.
