Patriotic Hearts Programs
HirePatriots is a program of Patriotic Hearts, a tax-exempt 501(c) 3 non-profit supported by charitable contributions. It is in “good standing” with the IRS.
HirePatriots.com began as a response to a Marine who returned from Iraq to discover his wife and two small children living without utilities, due to his wife being laid off while he was deployed. He knocked on our door and asked: “Sir, Ma’am, I need to earn some money right away to get the electric and gas turned on in my home for my family. Do you have any work that I can do for you right now around your home or yard
In response to this request, we created a free One Day job board initially for residents living near Camp Pendleton. Within months, 10,000 residents and Marines a week were visiting the website! We enlarged the site to include Full Time jobs and added a social networking blog. Now it is one of the most popular web destinations in America.
Financial stress endangers warriors’ lives. Our U.S. military, particularly the lower and mid-range enlisted and their families, often endure extreme financial hardships, coupled with multiple, lengthy deployments and the rigors of military life. These conditions elevate stress and reduce the effectiveness of those men and women in fulfilling their responsibilities on the battlefield or in support positions.
In response to this burgeoning crisis, Patriotic Hearts has developed several programs. — In recognition of the vital programs President Bush presented us with the “Congressional Medal of Merit.” And President Obama recently awarded us the “Presidents Call to Service Medal.

HirePatriots Job Boards: This is our most popular program. It creates daily and vocational opportunities for U.S. Military. This is a free job board for residents and businesses to hire their local military, veterans and their spouses. We currently have HirePatriots websites in 30 areas of the U.S. This popular program is quickly spreading into every state with the collaboration of veteran owned and patriotic businesses, as well as many passionate volunteers.
The goal of the HirePatriots program is to establish HirePatriots job boards in all 50 states, and in every major metropolitan region. This will enable us to assist hundreds of thousands of U.S. Military: Active duty, Reserves, Guard, veterans and their spouses, every year.
One Day Jobs: HirePatriots is an entirely unique and free national outreach. It provides a One Day job board for our U.S. military, veterans and their spouses. These are jobs posted primarily by patriotic U.S. residents who want a nearby G.I. or veteran to come to their home and help them with chores.
These One Day jobs fill a critical need for transitioning troops and veterans. With 900,000 unemployed U.S. veterans, as of this writing, HirePatriots’ One Day jobs give patriotic U.S. residents an opportunity to pitch in and temporarily employ them until they can find full time employment. – Companies can post temporary and seasonal work on this job board for free too.
Full Time Jobs: HirePatriots does not want to create any hindrance for companies that desire to employ U.S. veterans. HirePatriots has a free Full-Time job board exclusively for companies desiring to hire United States veterans and their spouses. It utilizes cutting edge technology and is connected to the social networks. — The popularity of this free program has made HirePatriots.com one of the most popular websites in America.

Military Marriage Enrichment Retreats: Our military’s emotional and psychological health, as well as their professionalism is influenced by the health of their relationships with their immediate family members. The normal divorce rate for US military personnel is 70%. But on US bases it has risen as high as 90% because of combat deployments. Military wives call it “The Plague.” In an effort to create healthy military families, Patriotic Hearts has created Military Marriage Enrichment Retreats.
These romantic retreats strengthen veteran’s marriages. The theme of our retreats is “Love and Respect.” They are held at beautiful resorts. They last from Friday night until Sunday afternoon. We continue to follow each couple closely after the retreats. And we have had wonderful success in keeping marriages and families united. — These are 3 day, all-expenses paid retreats.
HirePatriots Memberships — Cause Marketing: HirePatriots partners with businesses across the country. We enter into a synergistic Cause Marketing plan that utilizes our popular cause. We accomplish this by building them a customized HirePatriots site of their own. This award winning strategy increases web visitors, social network connections, and gets HirePatriots’ members free TV, radio and press.
HirePatriots and its programs are vital and greatly appreciated by our U.S. Military, veterans and their families. – It is our goal to directly assist 100,000 US veterans a year. – If you would like to pitch in, please volunteer. Or you can participate by joining our nationwide associations of patriotic business by becoming a HirePatriots Member.
