Blue Star Families
June 22, 2011
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.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
So many ways. They have rapidly expanded their presence to almost all of the military bases stateside and around the world with volunteers. They have organized the most effective group of pure volunteers and with very little overhead have maintained two way communications worldwide.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
give it the resources to expand their efforts and increase their support of serving military families
Advisor & I am on the Board of Advisors and last year had the privilege of serving as Santa Claus at one of their Christmas Parties they organized for the children of deployed and injured service members.
