It’s official! We’re so excited to share that our new mobile app, Twelve Million Plus, is NOW LIVE!
“The more than twelve million military spouses come from diverse backgrounds, have unique experiences, and face constant challenges. We’ve designed 12M+ to modernize how they connect and gather resources, and we aim to remove existing barriers in private and public partnerships that impact their quality of life. This app provides a safe, secure space to engage and thrive with others in the community,” said Founder and Chief People & Community Officer Erica McMannes.
Vetted companies can engage with spouses on various topics, including employment, professional development, financial wellness, friendship and connection, and more.
Military spouses can download the Twelve Million Plus app for free from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store. We’ve partnered with ID.me, a secure digital identity network, to verify military affiliation.
We’re thrilled to work with organizations like “Grow with Google” to promote additional ways for military spouses to upskill through Google Career Certificates and Spouse-ly, an online marketplace where you can shop goods and services from military and first responder families. Users will also have access to MILLIE, an online community providing resources and services to support military service members and their families throughout each PCS.
We’re also partnering with stand-up comedian and military spouse Ashley Gutermuth and the Best Medicine Brigade, which creates opportunities for veterans and military spouses to share their stories through comedy.
Remote-first, but not remote-only
Building Twelve Million Plus has kept us busy, but that’s not all we’ve been up to! We’ve also opened a community workspace in Southern Pines, NC.
“While we will always be remote-first, we are not remote-only,” said Founder and CEO Liza Rodewald. “Military spouses often become isolated due to frequent moves, distance from family members, and the continuous effort to establish new support networks. Our kid-friendly community workspace allows military spouses to upskill, co-work, and connect with our local community and the 12M+ globally.”
Download the Twelve Million Plus app today, and let us know what you think. We can’t wait to connect with even more of you!
