Yellow Ribbon Communities

What is a Yellow Ribbon Community?

A Yellow Ribbon Community unites all areas within a community to create a comprehensive network that connects and coordinates agencies, organizations, resources and employers for the purpose of proactively supporting Servicemembers and military families.

Since the first community was proclaimed Yellow Ribbon in 2008, several have been operating as 501(c)(3) charitable organizations. Additionally, many others are in the process of becoming 501(c)(3).
