NMFA and Life Reimagined working together to help military spouses find their true passions and opportunities in life
March 21, 2016
Alexandria, VA – The National Military Family Association (NMFA), a nonprofit that works to strengthen and protect military families, is teaming up with Life Reimagined, a first-of-its-kind series of online and offline experiences created by AARP, to help military spouses through military life transitions. Life Reimagined guides people through life transitions by helping them discover new possibilities and connect with a community of people pursuing similar passions and goals.
“Military spouses experience a number of transitions throughout their military life journey, and Life Reimagined is a great tool to help them discover what it is they really want to do,” said Joyce Wessel Raezer, Executive Director of NMFA. “There are any number of reasons why a military spouse might need to change career paths or explore new options and this tool will help them make the right choice for their passions and for their families.”
Life Reimagined is also joining the ranks of other Four Star level NMFA partners because of their contribution to NMFA’s many programs. In addition, they have offered 37 scholarships to military spouses to receive 6-months of Life Reimagined LifeMapä services, including 240 minutes of coaching services.
“We honor the often silent sacrifices made by the thousands of military spouses and families supporting our troops, and wanted to give them a powerful tool that could help them navigate the multiple life transitions military life presents,” said Emilio Pardo, President of Life Reimagined & Executive Vice President of AARP. “With LifeMap’s interactive step-by-step program, which includes personal support and guidance from our certified coaches, military spouses and other family members can explore their gifts, passions and interests, discover what matters most to them, and begin acting on the opportunities and possibilities in their lives.”
