Nonprofit organizations Mission: VALOR and Hope For The Warriors® announce their new partnership to combat veteran unemployment. The alliance will use both existing resources as well as develop new joint programs to expand career opportunities for troops, veterans, families, and caregivers. The mission of Hope For The Warriors® is to enhance the quality of life for post-9/11 service members, their families, and families of the fallen who have sustained physical and psychological wounds in the line of duty.
“We are very excited to begin collaborating with our partner-in-mission,” said MSgt Brian Schiller, USMCR (Ret.), Senior Director of Career Transition & Education with Hope For The Warriors®. “Our joint efforts will give each organization the opportunity to achieve new heights in our program work.”
“It is an honor to partner with Hope For The Warriors®,” said C. Blake Powers, CEO of Mission: VALOR. “Together, we can do so much more to help our veterans and their families get not just jobs, but successful and rewarding careers. The synergy that exists between our two organizations is not limited to one field or one location, and will only grow as we work together to meet the challenges of helping those who have done and given so much.”
