Booz Allen Hamilton shares STEP’s passion to serve those who serve us. Not only has the consulting company worked with the military since WWII, but their workforce is also one-third military affiliated, so they understand the unique challenges military families face. Our partnership with Booz Allen Hamilton has enabled us to effectively communicate our impact, reach deserving military families, and distribute essential goods to thousands during the COVID-19 pandemic crisis. Our nonprofit’s work has been amplified by the resources Booz Allen Hamilton has dedicated to our mission, both in expertise through a pro-bono project and through direct financial donations.

Booz Allen Hamilton recently completed a pro-bono project to help STEP analyze and effectively communicate our impact. A team of four Booz Allen consultants applied data science and project management expertise to merge data from a variety of sources to create user-friendly dashboards for STEP. The new dashboards demonstrate how lives have been changed through our programs and it will help us connect with additional clients in need of assistance.

In March, Booz Allen Hamilton donated $10,000 to STEP for COVID-19 relief efforts. Their contribution has provided 1,600 service members and their families with essential supplies including fresh produce, canned goods, infant formula, toilet paper, hygiene products, and diapers. Booz Allen Hamilton’s financial support has also enabled us to deliver hygiene products to 92 sailors in quarantine following a deployment in the UAE, to deliver food to 100 families quarantined in preparation for deployment, and to hold Drive-Thru Warehouse on Wheel (WOWs) where families have been able to safely pick up essential food and household items.
We appreciate our partnership with Booz Allen Hamilton and are grateful their support has enabled us to reach more military families. Our brave men and women in uniform stand up for our freedom every day. We are proud to help them achieve their own financial freedom and to support them during the difficult time of the COVID-19 crisis.
