Serving People & Communities in Need
Being an Enthusiastic Giver
Being established by a U.S. Retired Navy Commander, our company was founded on the principles of service - and that means service to all mankind. We value the opportunity to share our company's success with those less fortunate in the communities in which we live, work and play through volunteerism, charitable donations, and active participation in a large number of community organizations. We are proud to say that we have been afforded the opportunity to increase our level of support year after year to a number of community affiliated organizations.
Being an Advocate
It is our full intent to support and promote local small businesses, typically disadvantaged firms. Small businesses, like ourself, are the drivers of our nation's economy; by supporing them, we truly believe we can make a stronger economic impact in the communities where we work and live. US&S provides opportunities to other minority, women and small veteran (veteran, disabled veteran, service-disabled veteran) business enterprises (MWVBE) firms by advertising notice or directly soliciting companies for potential subcontracting opportunities. Members of the company's leadership team are also involved and engaged with events and organizations that exist to foster diversity and inclusion efforts in the community.
Being a Mentor
After celebrating our 10th Anniversary, we decided to mentor "up and coming" small, minority owned businesses. One way the company has made this commitment, outside of advocating for teaming arrangements and subcontracting opportunities, is through renting office space at a subsidized rate to multiple small, minority owned companies. The company has also made the commitment to assist the leadership of specific entities through various means, including but not limited to, business development assistance and subcontracting opportunities. It is our intent to become a Mentor through a formalized Mentor-Protege Relationship through the Small Business Administration with an 8(a) firm once we graduate from the program ourselves. What better way to reach back and uplift companies following in our footsteps then through formally attempting to increase the capacity of these firms in areas we have the know-how and in the areas they need assistance?
