What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

In the military support landscape, there is currently a need to create a collective platform that can provide resources that are easily accessible and readily available to a service member or their families. As most people would agree military families face many unique challenges, and that is why The Military Families Program seeks to create a framework for building a more coherent, comprehensive approach to supporting the well-being and readiness of military families. According to a (U.S. Department of Defense [DoD], 2012, study, military families play a critical role in the strength and readiness of our nation’s military. The resilience, readiness, and ability of military families to thrive throughout both the expected and the unexpected challenges and opportunities of military life impact individual service member’s readiness and attentiveness to their mission. We are building that platform.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Build a program of record to address Military Families Food Insecurity
Build a database platform for all resources for the Military Families

We have built a best in class resource database system for resources for ever pillar for the military family and we are continuing to expand it on a daily basis to get to the goal of 40,000 resources by years end.

MFP is developing a pop up food bank for once a month in the DC area for the enlisted families in need.
The enlisted military member or dependent can come and pick up groceries. They will be provided two bags when they arrive. This will be anonymous

For food donations we have created drop boxes for office buildings, stores etc. for people to drop canned goods and other donations.

We have all of resources in our network and internal to meet these goals for 2021.

We have established the database and it is open and running with over 4500 vetted resources already.

For food insecurity we have identified potential partner agencies already for the location and we are currently disturbing the boxes to collect the donations for food.
