The recipient of five Legion of Merit Medals, former Rear Admiral Rick Williams served the U.S. Navy in several leadership positions for more than 20 years, including in the role of commander of Navy Region Hawaii. Dedicated to giving back to members of the Navy, Marines, and their families, Rear Admiral Rick Williams contributes to the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society, which earned recognition as one of the top nonprofit organizations to work for in 2017.

Every year, The Nonprofit Times conducts a review of nonprofit organizations throughout the country to determine those that are the best to work for and those that benefit the economy and workforce. The first component of the assessment consists of a review of each organization’s philosophy, policies, practices, systems, and demographics. The second part, which engages employees in a survey about their experience at their organization, makes up 75 percent of the review process.

This is the fourth year that employees of the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society participated in the survey. The society ranked 12th on the list of 27 medium-sized nonprofit organizations participating in the survey and 20th on the list of the Top 50 nonprofits to work for in the country.

Rick Williams was formerly a Rear Admiral in the United States Navy. As an individual who has served in the capacity of rear admiral, Rick Williams donates to Navy Relief.

Navy Relief is also referred to as the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society. The organization has served those in the Navy and Marines for over 100 years. It officially became incorporated in 1904, growing out of the need to assist widows and orphans of those having served in the Navy and Marines. In its first year the society gave over $9,000 to those in need.

The Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society currently provides many different support options for individuals and family members. As just one example, newly expectant parents are able to make use of the Budget for Baby Program. Couples take the workshop together, and are given advice on how to budget for a child over his or her lifetime, as well as information about what is necessary and what is simply nice to have when getting ready for their baby. The parents-to-be also receive a visit from a relief society nurse after their baby is born.
