Supporting Veterans

Those who serve in America’s Armed Forces keep our nation safe and free, and the app-based industry is committed to honoring their bravery and sacrifice.

Flex member companies will always stand to support our community of veterans, service members, and military families.

Military Families

App-based work provides the military community with opportunities to earn income on their own terms—with the added flexibility to continue their education, support family needs, and thrive as they transition from service to civilian life.

Our member companies continue to give back, from connecting veterans to employment, health care, and housing opportunities to partnering with organizations that dedicate essential resources to veterans and their families.
