Blue Star Families is a bridge between military families, the shapers of policy affecting military life, and the nation. Our mission is to engage military families and gather our perspectives on all aspects of military life. We will use this knowledge base to inform the policy shapers and to support families, like ours, that have the honor to serve. Through outreach with national and local organizations, civilian communities and government entities, we seek to educate the nation in order to promote healthier families, aid in our military readiness, and contribute to our country’s strength.

Reviews for Blue Star Families
Blue Star Families is the most dynamic service organization I have ever known. This is one big family taking care of each other. Their sense of purpose and dedication to supporting each other is exemplary. They have done more in less time with the least amount of resources than any organization I am aware of. From "Books on Base" to Suicide Prevention Education and all of their other programs they have been laser focused on identifying real needs within the military family community, identifying real solutions that come from within the community and most importantly quickly and effectively deploying the solutions.

give it the resources to expand their efforts and increase their support of serving military families
