Zeiders Celebrates 30 Years as a Leader in Military Quality of Life Services and Military Community Support

March 5, 2014 – Prince William County, Va. – The Prince William County Department of Economic Development congratulates Zeiders Enterprises, Inc. on its 30th year anniversary as a Leader in Military Quality of Life Services and Military Community Support.

Zeiders celebrated this significant milestone achievement on Friday, February 28th with an Open House, attended by special guest speakers: Senator Toddy Puller, 36th District of the Virginia Senate; Supervisor Michael C. May, Occoquan District Supervisor & Vice Chair, Prince William Board of Supervisors; Collin Davenport, representing U.S. Congressman Gerry Connolly of Virginia’s 11th District; and Joyce Wessel Raezer, Executive Director, National Military Family Association.

“We are proud of our past, humbled by our chance to serve our nation, and excited about the opportunity that the future holds for our company,” said Michael Zeiders, Founder & CEO of Zeiders.

“Prince William County is a great place to start a business,” Zeiders added. Thirty years ago, Michael Zeiders, a graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy in 1975, started the company, working out of his home in Woodbridge, Prince William County, Virginia.

Today, Zeiders believes that the company’s ability to succeed is based on the organization’s corporate values and its employees’ talent and commitment.  The company’s corporate headquarters is located on Caton Hill Road in Woodbridge, Virginia and has satellite offices in San Diego, California and Norfolk, Virginia. The company delivers on its mission to provide quality of life support services to military service members and their families with over 1,000 employees serving in over 100 worldwide locations supporting a variety of human services programs, personal financial management and career transition.

In 1986, Zeiders was awarded its first military Family Service Center contract at the Marine Corps Base Quantico.  As the military faced new challenges in service delivery, Zeiders has responded with new contract services to meet service member, family and command needs.  By the mid-1990s, Zeiders graduated from small business status and established a solid reputation for providing quality services through the operation of the Navy’s largest regional Fleet and Family Support Center in Hampton Roads, Virginia, as well as the Navy’s Centers in San Diego, California and many smaller centers around the country. The company’s capabilities now include the largest veteran- and military-focused personal finance counseling provider network, a virtual career center supporting military spouses, and behavioral health services which are recognized with the Joint Commission’s Health Care Staffing Services certification for quality.

Zeiders has had the privilege to support our nation and the U.S. Navy during difficult times. In 2000, the company provided support for the families of the USS Cole (DDG-67) attack and two years later four of Zeiders’ staff members received Meritorious Public Service Awards for supporting the establishment of the Pentagon Family Assistance Center after 9/11.  Zeiders’ staff has also responded to natural disasters, including Hurricane Katrina and the San Diego fires.

Michael Zeiders and his wife Charlotte are also the founders of the Quality of Life Foundation. The Foundation, established in November 2007 as a 501(c) (3) public charity, continues the tradition of Zeiders Enterprises by providing support to families who provide daily in-home care for catastrophically wounded, ill or injured veterans. The Foundation has served veteran families across the nation and coordinated the delivery of goods and services estimated at over $918,000. The Foundation is co-located with Zeiders Enterprises which provides pro-bono office support to the Foundation.
