Reviews for Hire Our Heroes

Role: Board Member
Rating: 5 stars  

Hire our Heroes (http://hireourheroes.org) is a 503c focused on helping military veterans transition to civilian employment through coaching, mentoring, and training. I am an exceptionally busy executive. But I make time to work with Hire our Heroes. It's mission, dedicated staff, and "get it done approach" is all top notch and focused holistically on vets and their families. What a wonderful organization that does what is says it does and doesn't just talk about the problem. Kudos to Dan and all the staff of HoH for their selfless work to support our veterans.

What a wonderful organization. My son Sgt Eric Osborne, his girlfriend & I were recently recipients of KISS/Def Leppard concert tickets and back stage passes thanks to Hire for Heroes. My son is active duty but has been in a hospital most of the last 4 months. It was so great to see him excited about going out and joining the real world again. This was a big time for us in more ways than one. Thank you and God Bless! Tonia Osborne

Hire Our Heroes is the absolute best Veteran's support nonprofit I have ever found. The staff is not only dedicated, but they all have military experience themselves, which really separates them from the crowd of other Veteran service nonprofits. Hire Our Heroes invests an incredible amount of personal time and energy into each Veteran, helping the Veteran understand what his or her idea career path may be in the civilian world. I am particularly impressed by the free airline tickets (more than 20 flights this year!) Hire Our Heroes have to Veterans to fly them to their civilian job interviews. If you are looking for a world-class nonprofit dedicated to helping our Nation's Veterans find jobs, look no further than Hire Our Heroes.

This organization is still in it's infancy, and I am confident it will continue to grow andature into a true Veteran's support powerhouse.

This is the first non-profit I've seen who is devoted to making sure the entire hiring process for veterans goes smoothly. So many other non-profits focus on small pieces of the puzzle, but Hire Our Heroes tackles the: training, the preparation, interview, business attire, and even transportation to the final interview.

I joined the board because of their mission, but also because the Co-Founder, Dan Caporale has extensive experience in the staffing industry. I'm excited to watch Hire Our Heroes continue to grow and expand!

Nothing to think of at this time!

I was a volunteer for the charity skeet shoot in Maryland this past month. HOH did a great job organizationally, keeping things running smoothly. I really appreciated the opportunity to work along side veterans and wounded veterans. It was a moving day to see our heroes enjoying themselves and relishing in the support of all those that came out to shoot some clays with our nation's finest.

We began this journey with the mindset of helping one veteran at a time. Success to us, even if our doors closed tomorrow, means that we were able to assist just one veteran obtain employment and outfit that individual with the necessary tools to 'fit and win' in today's marketplace.

The military's motto is to leave no man behind, Hire our Heroes intent is to leave no veteran unemployed. We are on are way to fulfilling this goal.

We started Hire Our Heroes (HOH), so we could design a program to spread the word about the importance of assisting veterans in the transitioning process and bridge the gap for civilian employment opportunities. Establishing a minimal viable product (MVP) we have uncovered just how big of an issue we are facing. We have discovered on a larger scale that veterans need to understand who they are before they can truly figure out what they want to do. Employers need to be educated on the value that transitioning veterans bring to the table and IF they will just give them an opportunity, they will exceed their wildest expectations more times than not. HOH has established some great industry relationships and is making a positive impact for our veterans. Come join us in our mission of the eradication of veteran unemployment.

As we continue to grow, it is important to bring in more industry leaders to our board and establish a mechanism for the expansion necessary to grow the village! Continued collaboration and the drive and determination of our board and volunteers will propel us to the next step to continue our mission.

Hire Our Heroes is a passionate and sincere non-profit purely focused on providing "whatever it takes" to assist veterans transitioning from the military to private industry - utlimately to provide them with the requisite knowledge and financial support to "prepare them for professional positions" and to "get them to interviews by providing free transportation [flights] anywhere in the U.S."

I was fortunate to have been asked to provide a full day workshop for 20+ vets currently in the miitary or those that recently discharged - it was a great day. I was able to share my knowledge of what they needed as next steps and the vets reinforced my belief in them as viable candidates with an exceptional work ethic!

Kudos to Dan Caporale and Tim Kirk and their Board for providing this valuable service!

I would not change anything - I would encourage corporations who are sincere in helping our veterans to donate to this non-profit so they many assist more vets in transitioning...
