Patriotic Hearts Mission:
Patriotic Hearts' mission is to create effective economic stability and enhancement programs that assists U.S. Military, veterans and their families and aids their return to the civilian sector as healthy, successful and important contributors to the American way of life;and, to educate the US citizenry about their valiant sacrifices and value to our nation.
Our first job board was a One Day job board that residents in San Diego used to hire local Marines, corpsmen and sailors. It was a sensation and received several prestigious awards for the benefit it brought to US veterans, as well as to San Diego’s communities and economy. Now, U.S. military and veterans across America want this program brought to their part of the country.
Our U.S. military, particularly the lower and mid-range enlisted and their families, often endure extreme financial stress, coupled with multiple, lengthy deployments and the rigors of military life. And our transitioning veterans often take years before catching up with their civilian peers and securing sustainable employment. This lengthy financial stress takes its toll. Too often it means that a veteran also loses his family as a part of his or her sacrifice to our country.
In response to this burgeoning crisis, Patriotic Hearts has developed several programs.
- HirePatriots.com Job Board
- Vet-Entrepreneur Mentoring
- Military Marriage Enrichment Retreats
- Career & Personal Counseling
- US Veteran Homeless Program
HirePatriots.com Job Boards: HirePatriots.com is our flagship website. It has two job boards and two blog posting sections. We have a Careers job board for US veterans and their spouses who are looking for more permanent employment. And we have our one-of-a-kind One Day/Off Duty job board for the US military and their spouse. These are jobs posted by local residents that need help with chores and repairs around their homes and yards.
HirePatriots.com is a nationwide veteran employment program. We offer communities across America their own HirePatriots.com websites for their local community to employ their area’s US military, veterans and their spouses.
Vet-Entrepreneur Mentoring: Not all USW veterans want a job. Some want to start their own businesses. We have developed a complete Cause Marketing program for them that utilizes all of the details of The Patriotic Business Plan, a book that shows vet-entrepreneurs how to become a sensation in their area or across the country. The Patriotic Business Plan: Strategies for Sensational Success.
We have also created a business for US veterans to own: US Military Maintenance. We provide everything they need to get started: equipment, website, biz cards, bid sheets, shirts, marketing plan and mentoring every step of the way. They own these businesses and commit to hiring other US veterans as we help them grow.
Career & Personal Counseling: Every day we assist US veterans across America in preparing properly for getting the right jobs for them. This begins with a review and rewrite of their resumes. Then we coach them and make sure that they are indeed ‘work ready.’ Afterwards, we look at various companies and job openings and prepare them for being interviewed. Then we call those companies and set appointments with a decision maker.
We also host job fairs and specialized hiring events for them. We rent out a facility, nearby or on a US military base. Then we search for companies that are seriously looking to hire US veterans to fill their open positions. These job fairs run for 4 hours. We have participated in hosting many of these events..
Military Marriage Enrichment Retreats: These are 3 day, all expenses paid retreats for married US military and veterans. Sadly, our US military endures a tremendously high divorce rate. These retreats have enriched every couple’s marriage that have attended. Our US veterans endure enough hardship. Losing their families is too much to ask. These retreats saves marriages and keep their families together.
Veteran Recovery: NO L.I.E. (No Life is Expendable) This is a unique substance abuse recovery program, directed by a CDACII counselor. It is a self recovery program that offers a step-by-step workbook, online assistance, as well as confidential, personal counseling.
