Military & Youth Well-Being

The impacts of military service on family life continue to be a top concern for active-duty families, and at risk is the well-being of military youth, military children’s education, and child care.

GI Bill for Child Care

Research shows a tight link between spouse unemployment and financial insecurity, but child care costs often make it too difficult to return to the workforce. Blue Star Families is partnering with organizations to propose an upstream solution, based on the GI Bill for education.

Blue Star Kids

Military kids are among the most resilient and adaptable individuals you will ever encounter. They know how to make new friends quickly, navigate unfamiliar terrain, and find the fun in any situation. Together with our partners, we're continuing to design fun programming and find new opportunities to make their military experience better.

The Do Your Part coalition is led by Blue Star Families with support from Craig Newmark and craig newmark philanthropies.
