Hire Heroes USA’s (HHUSA) mission is to offer transition assistance, job search assistance, and job placement services to those who have honorably served in the US military – and to their spouses – in order to reduce veteran unemployment. HHUSA prioritizes veterans statistically most likely to be unemployed: veterans of Operations IRAQI FREEDOM and ENDURING FREEDOM, and veterans that are wounded or disabled.

As a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, HHUSA’s services are provided at no cost to the veteran.

Maintain the Nation’s most effective veteran transition and employment assistance program,
modeling a process that will drastically decrease the unemployment rate of the men and women who served this country.”

Integrity, Innovation, Compassion, Confidence, Commitment

"Creating the Opportunity."

The transition back into civilian life can be challenging for service men and women, especially those wounded or disabled. As they seek to establish new civilian careers, many young veterans find themselves behind their peers and counterparts in terms of employment experience and networking in the civilian sector.

The services HHUSA offers to our returning service members - our Heroes - help ease the transition into civilian life and ensure these selfless men and women have the opportunity to enjoy the freedoms they fought to preserve.
