US Military Maintenance Northeast Ohio (USMM) is a Veteran-owned commercial cleaning, maintenance and janitorial service company based in Youngstown, Ohio. With your help, USMM is leading the charge to put our nation’s Veterans to work.
We are a Social Enterprise with a double bottom line: become and remain a profitable business so that we can, in turn, hire US Veterans. We don’t hire Veterans to clean, we clean to hire Veterans!
George McDonnell, a Youngstown-area entrepreneur and a Navy Veteran, recognized that some Veterans, especially the young men and women returning from the post 9/11 wars, have a hard time reintegrating into society. Many of those Veterans can’t work for various reasons. One thing that all Veterans can do however is clean: Every Veteran has learned to clean beginning on Day One of boot camp and they’ve either cleaned, or they’ve supervised and inspected cleaning throughout their service. In 2016 George met Mark Baird via LinkedIn. Mark is an award-winning Veteran Advocate from San Diego who has devoted much time and energy to help solve the Veteran unemployment crisis. Mark had made the connection that local businesses need trustworthy, reliable, and detail-oriented commercial cleaning services and local Veterans – who know how to clean – need work. George became one of the early adopters of the US Military Maintenance business model that Mark has pioneered and had begun rolling out with the help of entrepreneurial Veterans across the country.
Together we can put heroes to work! We are looking for local companies here in the Youngstown area to partner with us in this goal. When you hire us we can then can hire and train local Veterans. You can help us to employ Veterans who have served honorably and are ready to work and at the same time maintain the professional image that your company desires. In addition to creating jobs for local Veterans, USMM contributes a portion of our revenue to Mark Baird’s 501(c)(3) non-profit Patriotic Hearts. Patriotic Hearts was founded with the mission to create effective economic stability and enhancement programs for service members, Veterans, and their families.
USMM is proud to be a Social Enterprise with the dual goals of earning a profit and doing good in the world.
Get clean, do good!
