Our Impact

For over fifteen years, we have provided programs that offer relief, through critical financial assistance and transitional housing programs; resiliency, through permanent housing and caregiver support services; and recurring family support, with programs and services throughout the year. At Operation Homefront, over 90 percent of expenditures goes directly toward delivering programs.

How we are making a difference!

  • 44,000 requests

    from military families across the U.S. fulfilled.

  • $88 million

    in home equity through Homes on the Homefront.

  • 110,000

    military families served holiday meals throughout the year.

Relief

One of the ways Operation Homefront provides stability to military families is through short-term relief. Our Critical Financial Assistance program helps families pay bills such as rent or mortgage, which is one of the top three requests from military families, along with food and groceries, and utilities.

Our Transitional Housing Village and Transitional Homes for Community Reintegration programs provides a supportive environment for service members who are leaving the military for civilian life.
