Operation Homefront builds strong, stable and secure military families so they can thrive in the communities they work so hard to protect. By connecting the American donor community (individuals, foundations and corporations) to our military families through robust array of valued and life-changing programs that address the specific short-term, critical assistance, long-term stability and recurring family support needs they experience, Operation Homefront is able to help military families overcome many of the challenges inherent in military life. The result: stronger, more stable and more secure military families.
