The average military spouse moves 8-12 times in span of a 20-year military career, which often results in starting over in each new location and dealing with the struggles of meeting new people and feeling a sense of community where they live.

The USO has supported military spouses for many years and in 2016, launched a worldwide initiative focusing on programs to strengthen and empower military spouses by connecting them to their social, professional, and community networks.

USO Coffee Connections >>

Coffee and friends are the perfect blend.

Coffee Connections encourage spouses to attend monthly gatherings at their local USO or local business to connect with friends, share advice, and learn about local events. These connections allow spouses to relax in a comfortable setting, learn about their community, try a new craft, and relax over a cup of coffee.

In 2023, the USO continues to host virtual and in-person Coffee Connections; with plans to host over 800 connections to over 10,000 spouses in their local communities. Each Coffee Connections has its own unique spin by bringing spouses together through crafts, yoga, community outings, and more with the goal of creating new friendships in their communities.

USO Coffee Connection Live >>

Coffee Connection Live kicked off in February 2019. The program was created in response to requests from spouses who might not have ready access to a USO location but expressed interested in participating in USO spouse programming. This virtual event is an hour-long coffee chat with influential guests, where they discuss topics that are relevant and trending within the military spouse community.

We had outstanding conversations and influential guests such as Monte Durham, Caroline Ashton, Carla Hall, Robert Beemer, and more!

All past episodes can be found here.

Join in on the conversations in 2022 while we focus on wellness to help you reach your goals and ambitions this year.

Continuing Your Journey >>

The USO has partnered with Brittany Boccher, the 2017 Military Spouse of the Year, to continue a series of workshops around the world. Continuing Your Journey, a more in-depth 12-module workshop derived from Discovering Your Spark, allow spouses to find their passion and purpose, approach life’s challenges with a more positive and proactive outlook and focus on specific topics to be the best you in 2022.

In the Kitchen >>

In the Kitchen is a virtual program which invites spouses around the world to connect, on- camera, with a chef from With Homemade, to create amazing meals the whole family can enjoy.
