America's Warrior Partnership

America’s Warrior Partnership is committed to empowering communities to empower veterans. We fill the gaps that exist between current veteran service organizations by helping nonprofits connect with the veterans, military members and families in need: bolstering their efficacy, improving their results and empowering their initiatives. America’s Warrior Partnership is a force multiplier for warrior community integration that enhances communities where great Americans choose to live and contribute. America’s Warrior Partnership’s Community Integration model is active in five communities across the country and has served nearly 37,000 veterans in three years. This model empowers communities through training, mentorship and structure to conduct proactive outreach to veterans by connecting existing resources and providing tools to create stronger collaboration among existing veteran service providers, bridging gaps in service wherever they may exist. The result is a more coordinated approach that holistically serves each veteran’s individual needs, ensuring no one slips through the cracks or does not receive essential support services.

WarriorServe® is the technological component of our Community Integration model, which creates a coordinated approach to holistically serving each veteran’s individual needs. WarriorServe® is a customized, cloud-based solution is the tool used to enhance the data tracking and reporting capabilities of veteran serving organizations at every level. Developed by America’s Warrior Partnership on the SalesForce.com platform with extensive input from veteran serving professionals, WarriorServe® tracks warriors and the services they receive at a personalized level never before seen in the veteran service arena. By combining comprehensive record keeping with one-on-one relationship building, organizations help guide veterans to more robust resources and determine eligibilities, needs and desires for improving veterans’ overall quality of life.

Blue Star Families

Blue Star Families was formed in April 2009 by a group of military spouses to create a platform where military family members can join with civilian communities and leaders to address the challenges of military life. Blue Star Families includes active duty, National Guard, Reserve, wounded, transitioning service members and their families from all ranks and services, as well as veterans and civilians who strongly support us. Blue Star Careers provides a broad range of military spouse employment initiatives designed to support military family members throughout various points on their career path. From building a resume and networking that finds a great job, to mentorship and professional development that grows a lasting career, Blue Star Careers’ employment & education initiatives address and leverage the unique challenges of the military family lifestyle.

Some military spouses will soon begin testing another option for a portable career thanks to a pilot program that will offer free training to become a Salesforce administrator. The initiative, called SpouseForce, provides Salesforce administrator training to military spouses; that training usually would cost $5,000. The pilot program will start small Feb. 8, with about a dozen military spouses in the San Diego area. The next training is expected to start in May in the San Antonio area; others will be rolled out later. Salesforce is a customer relationship management platform that businesses and other organizations use to manage customer data and interaction, and access business information, as well as a variety of other applications. The average salary for a Salesforce administrator is more than $80,000, and the growing field has room for upward mobility, according to Kathy Roth-Douquet, chief executive officer of the nonprofit Blue Star Families, which is a partner in the SpouseForce initiative. She said there is a shortage of Salesforce administrators. Applications are being accepted for the San Diego area; visit www.bluestarfam.org/spouseforce. Roth-Douquet encourages spouses to apply even if they are not in San Diego, so that Blue Star Families officials can gauge the interest in this career field and keep spouses informed when opportunities for this training open up in the future.
