Hire Heroes USA
HR Florida understands the importance of corporate responsibility and the value of “giving back” to the community. Each year, we select a charity to be highlighted throughout the year, and local chapters across the state participate in special events, some of their own design and some state-wide, to help raise funds for the charity.
HR Florida is excited to partner with Hire Heroes USA this year. Hire Heroes USA empowers U.S. military members, veterans and military spouses to succeed in the civilian workforce.
It started with one.
U.S. Army Sergeant Justin Callahan was severely injured in a landmine explosion while on patrol in Afghanistan. Back home as a patient at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, he met John Bardis. The two formed an immediate bond, and Bardis learned that Callahan’s biggest concern, despite his injuries, was finding employment.
After offering Callahan a job on the spot, he was inspired to create Hire Heroes USA—a nonprofit that provides free job search support to U.S. military members, veterans and military spouses.
