Target demographics: Service members, veterans and their families

Direct beneficiaries per year: 340 veterans and families with financial grants, and provided referral services for 850 clients to ensure they receive the financial and other counseling and services they need.

Someone who had 3 hours of volunteer time could: greet flights of soldiers coming home from war as part of our Welcome Home Heroes program, staff an information/donation booth at a community event, or help with our annual fundraising dinner or golf tournament.

Geographic areas served: Colorado

Programs: emergency financial grants to pay essential life expenses such as rent and utilities. Our grants, often made within 48 hours, prevent evictions and homelessness, and keep the power and heat on for Colorado veterans and military families in need.

Mission:
The Home Front Cares primarily provides emergency and responsive support and grants for Colorado's service members, veterans and family members, who have been impacted by deployment in harm's way.
Results:
Since 2003, The Home Front Cares has raised more than $6.5 million to help thousands of Colorado service members, veterans and their families, paying essential life expenses like rent and utilities. We began by serving families of deployed soldiers in the Pikes Peak region, but as the wars have wound down over the years, we've expanded our services statewide, to include all branches of service, Guard, Active Duty, Reserve or Veteran. Today, nearly 99% of our clients are Veterans.
