ABOUT THE PROGRAM

Operation Homefront’s Transitional Housing Program allows eligible service members to live rent free while they go through the transition process. Upon placement, Operation Homefront counselors set up a mandatory schedule that these service members, veterans and their families must follow. They are required to attend support groups, workshops, benefits briefings, and resume writing classes, as determined by their counselor. They also undergo one-on-one financial counseling to reduce debt and build savings. Operation Homefront counselors meet with each military family every 30 days to review their financial situation, determine where they are in the transition process, review their attendance in the required workshops and classes, and determine their ability to live on their own. Once they have become self-sufficient, our counselors help them find suitable housing in the area they intend to live on a permanent basis. Upon completion of the program, veterans and their families should have VA benefits in place, debt significantly reduced and emergency savings in place.

Our properties are fully furnished, complete with full utility services, internet access, cable TV, and telephone service. Our comfortable apartments have all the typical features of home.

Operation Homefront currently operates its program in three locations across the country:

SoCal program: serves those primarily being treated at Balboa Hospital and Camp Pendleton.

Maryland program: serves those primarily being treated at Bethesda Naval Medical Center/Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and Fort Belvoir.

San Antonio program: serves those primarily being treated at Joint Base San Antonio and Audie Murphy VA Hospital.
