“On November 10, 2021, Magellan Federal, proudly stood alongside First Lady Dr. Jill Biden, Senator Elizabeth Dole, Secretary of Veterans Affairs Denis McDonough, and Secretary of Defense Lloyd J. Austin III, and more than 50 public and private sector organizations for the announcement of a series of commitments to support children in military or veteran caregiving families and enhance the support services available to them.”
“The White House event coincided with Military Family Month and was hosted by First Lady Dr. Jill Biden’s Joining Forces Initiative. With groundbreaking research powered by Elizabeth Dole Foundation and Mathematica, the ceremony was a call to action for all sectors to support children in military caregiving homes. The event also announced the launch of Hidden Helpers, a new initiative designed to create supportive programming for and bring awareness to the 2.3 million children of wounded, ill, or injured service members or veterans.”
“As a Hidden Helpers Coalition member, Magellan Federal has pledged to be a thought leader on this topic to aid in the creation of new and expanded resources and tools, marking significant progress in how America supports its more than 2.3 million military-connected caregiver children and youth.”
“Magellan Federal CEO, Oscar Montes, attended the inaugural event at the White House. ‘Creating a new national model of support for Hidden Helpers is a worthy cause and one that solidly resonates with our mission at Magellan Federal. Supporting the behavioral health of military service members, veterans, civil servants and their families is what we do every day, and we are thrilled to take action at a national level,’ Montes said.”
“Magellan Federal is a registered d/b/a of Armed Forces Services Corporation and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Magellan Health.”
