Support for military families is a critical component of military readiness. That is why the USO of North Carolina is launching Community Connections Coffee Chats, a brand new program for military spouses.
Community Connections Coffee Chats offer military spouses a place to build relationships and discuss a variety of topics important to them. Each session offers a unique theme, ranging from health and wellness to self care and even self defense, all intended to empower military spouses and help them face challenges associated with the military lifestyle.
The program is part of the USO of North Carolina’s Community Connections program series for military families, including additional activities like Story Time for children and dinners to bring families together.
“We are excited to launch this new program for military spouses,” said Kelli Willoughby, Warrior and Family Programs director at the USO of North Carolina. “Though they face many challenges as a result of the military lifestyle, military spouses bring a great deal of strength and skills to the table. We believe that this opportunity to bring them together will help them further develop those strengths and skills, and improve readiness of their families as a whole.”
Initial sessions begin on March 7 and March 11 at the USO of North Carolina Fort Bragg and Jacksonville centers. To register or learn more, visit uso-nc.org/events.
