New Program Would Streamline Job Help for Spouses

A new program from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation Hiring Our Heroes is hoping to have big impact in major military areas nationwide by funneling momentum for military spouse employment into action.

The Military Spouse Economic Empowerment Zones program, announced today by the foundation and USAA, will focus on a currently unnamed collection of cities that will included areas like San Antonio, Texas, Hampton Roads, Virginia and Tacoma, Washington, to collect all of the spouse programs that already exist into a one-stop-shop of sorts for job opportunities, said Elizabeth O’Brien, the Chamber foundation’s head of military spouse programs.
