Mission Statement

We are a non-profit organization that strives to empower families of the deployed in the U.S. military. Our mission is to bring hope, strength, and financial aid to families of the deployed through community events, fundraising, and other resources.

Description

By 2025, Deployed Families United will reform the support system for families who are deployed. We will
be known throughout Wisconsin and the country as a leader in helping families transition into life’s next
stage when their loved one is deployed. We will reach thirty thousand military families and be known to the
military as a go to source to reaching out to families. We will also be known as a valuable military resource
center.

Our mission is to bring hope, strength, and financial aid to families of the deployed through community
events, fundraising, and other resources.

Through sponsors, grants and donations, we seek to offer:

  • Support groups for the families of the deployed
  • Virtual events and fundraisers
  • Financial aid for emergency relief
  • Connections to community resources
  • Community support and outreach

We believe that families of the deployed deserve to be treated with kindness, compassion, and respect. We
believe in providing a safe, non-judgmental place for families of the deployed to gain confidence that fosters
honesty, integrity, and trust.
