Blue Star Families partners with Instant Teams to Move the Needle on Remote Work Opportunities for the Military Spouse Community


As part of their ongoing initiatives and commitment to employment in the military spouse community, Blue Star Families and Instant Teams have announced a new level of partnership under the Remote For Good program.

“We’ve been committed to building remote work solutions for companies and employing underserved talent groups for over 4 years now and Blue Star Families has been a supporter consistently along the way. We’ve always envisioned a way for us to give back, and that vision is what’s led us to the Remote For Good program. It allows our organizations to sit down together and strategically plan programming that moves the needle on remote work employment for the military spouse community,” said Instant Teams COO and Active Duty Army Spouse, Erica McMannes.


To commemorate the new partnership, Instant Teams has made a $5,000.00 donation to support Blue Star Families’ mission to be a voice for – and provide frontline resources to – America’s service members and their families around the globe.

“Blue Star Families is grateful to Instant Teams for their generous donation to our non-profit organization. We look forward to collaborating with Instant Teams via the Remote for Good Program and applaud Instant Teams’ efforts to help military spouses overcome the 20% military spouse unemployment rate (Blue Star Families, 2020 Annual Military Family Lifestyle Survey). This partnership enhances Blue Star Families’ current portfolio of resources designed to help military spouses find gainful employment.” said Kathy Roth-Douquest CEO and founder of Blue Star Families.

Instant Teams’ Remote for Good program bridges nonprofit and corporate initiatives with social impact focus to build more remote teams, collaboratively hire more military spouses, and ultimately create sustainable social and financial impact for military families.
