The Financial Effects of COVID-19 on Military Families

Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, military families faced a range of challenges related to employment, education, job training, childcare, and food insecurity. The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated and complicated these issues.

Our Association provides the 2.6 million military family members with a voice that fights for solutions to these challenges and offers resources of reprieve to strengthen their family connection during every phase of military life.

Over the course of nine months of the COVID-19 pandemic, we collected data from 4,112 military family members to see how their family’s wellbeing was affected by the pandemic.

Operation Purple Camp

Eastern 4-H Center is owned and operated by NC State University. The Center's staff is dedicated to providing every camper an opportunity to feel accepted, valued, and cared about as a member of the summer camp community. Creating friendships and a sense of safety are as important to us as the activities we teach. Our vision is to establish an enjoyable and exciting summer camp program that contributes to the development of each camper's character, along with the development of important life skills. Our summer camp experience enables campers to learn these skills while doing a variety of traditional summer camp activities, such as kayaking, canoeing, rock climbing, learning about nature, team challenge course, sports and games, arts and crafts, and archery. Eastern 4-H Center is also outfitted with modern recreational facilities and lodgings to make campers feel comfortable during their stay. We hope your camper will join us for a fun filled week.
