We take great pride in serving the military and veterans who defend our freedom. Through volunteerism, employee giving and charitable donations, we stand in support of our veterans, service members and their families. Our efforts focus on five strategic pillars including:
Wounded Warriors: Programs to address health, healing and recovery.
Families: Initiatives to strengthen families and address low-income concerns.
Homelessness: Services and housing for homeless veterans.
Employment: Programs to train and employ transitioning service members, wounded warriors and their spouses.
Appreciation: Efforts to recognize the contributions of active duty military and their families.
Partners providing services and programs for military and veterans include:
Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS)
TAPS provides resources and support to those who lost loved ones in the military. This includes peer-based emotional support, community-based care, a 24/7 national military survivor helpline and more. Northrop Grumman is proud to partner with TAPS and sponsor their National Military Survivor Seminar and Good Grief Camp held annually in Washington, D.C. In preparation for the event, employees wrote notes of support for grieving family members which were added to the Survivor Tree displayed at the seminar. The Survivor Tree represents the pear tree that survived the 9/11 World Trade Center attack and was transplanted at the memorial site. In addition, employees assembled 1,500 backpacks for the weekend event and participated in the Good Grief Camp Zone, engaging children in arts, crafts and games.
Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC)
Homelessness is a national crisis for our veterans. In partnership with LISC, Northrop Grumman commits funding for financial, technical and policy support to create permanent, supportive housing projects that provide critical services to low-income veterans.
American Corporate Partners (ACP)
Northrop Grumman has been a proud partner of ACP since 2013. ACP is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping post-9/11 veterans and spouses of service members find their next careers through one-on-one mentoring, networking and online career advice. Northrop Grumman leaders volunteer to serve as mentors to U.S. veterans and provide career development guidance and networking opportunities. To date, nearly 200 employees have shared their expertise and provided career advice for more than 300 ACP protégés.
United Through Reading
One of the most difficult things a child can experience is having a parent deployed to a war zone. United Through Reading helps keep military families together through the personal connection of a parent reading a recorded bedtime story to a child. Watch this short video to learn more.
Our outreach goes beyond the United States and into global communities where our employees work and live. Partnerships with organizations such as Soldier On, a veterans service organization based in Australia, provides veteran programming in health and well-being, psychological services, education, employment and social connections.
Operation Injured Military Pursuing Assisted Career Transition (Operation IMPACT)
Operation IMPACT is a unique and award-winning program within Northrop Grumman focused on assisting severely wounded service members as they transition from the military to a private-sector career. Service members unable to work due to the severity of their injuries can transfer this support to members of their immediate family seeking employment. A dedicated team provides program management, personalized placement assistance, community outreach and workplace accommodations for severely injured service members transitioning to civilian employment. The program has expanded to include a Network of Champions, providing additional resources for the placement of candidates with more than 100 companies.
Veterans, Employees, Reservists Inspired to Act and Serve (VERITAS)
VERITAS is an all-inclusive Northrop Grumman employee resource group committed to recognizing and supporting active duty, Reserve, National Guard and veterans. Areas of focus include workforce transition, veteran employee support, networking and community engagement. VERITAS members are strong supporters of military and veteran-related volunteer and outreach activities
