I’m all about celebrating Memorial Day Weekend as the official kickoff of summer. It’s a great time to grill, go to the beach, spend time outdoors, and catch up with friends, but we should never forget what the holiday is really about–remembering and honoring those who have given the ultimate sacrifice for our country. I spent a good amount of time this morning looking at non-profits that server our servicemen and their families. There are a ton of them, but most are small and don’t really seem to have employment opportunities. One that I came across that is a little bigger is Hope for the Warriors. They’re based in Jacksonville, NC, and they aim to “enhance quality of life for U.S. service members and their families nationwide who have been adversely affected by injuries or death in the line of duty.” That’s a mission that all Americans should want to get behind, and maybe some of you can help by working for them.
Hope for the Warriors was founded in 2006 by a group of military wives. They were on the front lines of a growing problem (the way war rips apart families), so they decided to do something about it. Hope for the Warriors now operates a variety of programs, all of which are focused on making life a little bit better for military families. Some of these programs include A Warrior’s Wish…, Above & Beyond, Warrior House, and Spouses Scholarships. To really get a feel for what Hope for the Warriors is all about, you need to get familiar with their programs. If you like what you see, you should check in on Idealist to see if they have any job opportunities posted. Right now there’s nothing posted, but they had a couple about a month ago. If you’re a go-getter, you may just want to reach out to them and see if you might be able to fit in somewhere in the organization.
