In 2009 Dr. Steven Rumley and his wife Diane made a commitment that every U.S. military spouse would annually receive an Appreciation Care Package, including a New Testament, to let them know how special they are.
This small effort grew into Support Military Spouses; the Nation’s largest Christian non-profit organization dedicated to serving military wives and husbands. Services now include Job Skills Training, Military Spouse Job Fairs, and Money Management Workshops. All of these services are provided at no cost to military families.
Our present day goal is simple; to provide each of the nearly 750,000 military spouses serving on the home front with an Appreciation Care Package annually.
Meet Our Founders
Dr. Steven and Diane Rumley co-founded Support Military Spouses to honor military wives and husbands for their sacrifice here at home. Dr. Rumley’s father, a World War II veteran, instilled in him a strong sense of faith and patriotism. Dr. Rumley served in the Air Force for four years before beginning his life as a minister. After thirty seven years as a pastor, Dr. Rumley became President and Chaplain of Support Military Spouses. Together with his wife Diane, they strive to make the spouses of the United States Armed Forces know they are not forgotten. The Rumleys are the proud parents of seven children and fourteen grandchildren.
