What we do:
Empowering our transitioning military and their families through innovative streamlined and self-sustaining support in the critical life areas of; family resources, financial management, educational resources and employment resources. Our mission is to provide support and to reintegrate and retain the local talent of our military who have served our country. Standing together to build a supportive community and a strong future for America
Why we do it:
Midwest is geographically challenged due to having a limited number of military bases. The Guard and Reserve have been heavily utilized in the past 11 plus years of war on active duty status with multiple deployments - this has never been done before in the history of our military. The transition home to civilian life is often very challenging for our military and their families in terms of; ongoing poly-trauma concerns, strained family relationships, educational/employment challenges and financial management concerns. There are many unmet and unanticipated needs in critical life areas; especially for our Guard and Reserve when they come home from service, largely because we are in uncharted territory for returning military. Coming home from war to an area that has a limited number of military bases can be nothing short of culture shock. That is why we are stepping up proactively to address this situation.
At Midwest Military Outreach, Inc we have a talented and dedicated staff committed to empowering the successful transition home for our military and their families. Please join us - as we can only complete our mission to provide support and to reintegrate and retain the local talent of our returning military with the help of concerned citizens like you. Together we will succeed in building a supportive community and a strong future for America.
