I know a few of the people that have benefited from Home Front Hearts. They really are one of the few non-profits that is not trying to make money off peoples' suffering.

My husband and I have worked with this charity for years along with several clubs we belong to. We have been involved with adopting military families in need for Christmas and at other times when the need arises.

Home Front Hearts is an organization dedicated to helping soldiers and there families. The dedication begins with Randi, the founder of the organization. Our family and friends have participated in collecting supplies for children in need to send abroad while her husband was stationed there. Locally we held a Christmas Party where the guests donated gifts and purchased furniture for a military family. I've also participated in a baby shower for a military family in need and expecting a child. Randi is very helpful in finding a way everyone can help, either financially, physically or through a collection of sorts.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

that I truly know that we have helped make the lives of several military families better thanks to our involvement with this organization.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

see their work reaching so many more people. They'd be able to hire a staff which would not only allow them to help more people but it would allow them to have more time to work on fundraising to make that 10 million dollars grow.

This is the best organization! I am a spouse of a Wounded Warrier and we have been through so much, thanks to Home Front Hearts my family and I didn't have to worry about Food or Christmas Presents for our children, I love what this organization does for Families. This is such a blessing and helps so many families! I tell everyone about what a difference Home Front Hearts makes in so many lives! It really makes a difference when you know someone truly cares, at a time when it really matters the most.

I've been volunteering with Home Front Hearts for about 6 months now and have witnessed absolute miracles! Randi and her team jump into action to help military families with anything they need -- no questions asked. Home Front Hearts truly changes lives. Randi is one of the most dedicated, selfless people I know. She treats volunteers with the utmost respect and provides an extremely encouraging and supportive environment.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

volunteering my time.

not change a thing! Well, if I had the power to grant them additional funding to assist hundreds more, I would!

The power and worth of any organization stems from the authentic values underneath. By this measure, HFH stands very tall indeed. With her husband on the front lines in Afghanistan, Randi Cairns experienced firsthand the challenges on the home front. Caring for children, keeping a one-adult household afloat, and making ends meet, Randi found the compassion and strength to build an organization to serve others like her.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

This is a learning organization, always dedicated to improvement.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Find a way for its chief executive to dedicate herself to it full time, and get 2-3 great full-time lieutenants as well.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Seeing the incredible dedication of its leader, Randi Cairns.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Committed, tireless, driven.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Make an enormous difference in an area where we have an unforgivable void in this country: care and resources for military families.

Ways to make it better...

This organization has more resources so that they could increase their important work.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Resources, and awareness in this country - which begs the question: how could there not be awareness when we are (still) fighting two wars abroad?

One thing I'd also say is that...

Please consider going to www.homefronthearts.org and giving a gift of any size. Families on the Home Front need and deserve your help.

As the Executive Director of a non-profit organization that is dedicated to small, little known organizations often begun by an inspired and inspiring individual (also known as a "good person")I have years of experience meeting and working with amazing visionaries who identify a need in this world and are dedicated to addressing that need. Randi Cairns, the inspiration behind Home Front Hearts and the good work it does, is one of those visionaries. As the wife of a National Guardsman who has left his wife and children on numerous occasions to serve our country, Randi had first-hand knowledge of the specific problems faced by National Guard families and has worked tirelessly to resolve many of those difficulties. HFH has developed an extensive online database of resources which are accessed by many Guard families. They have responded to specific needs, with the help of donors, when appropriate and Randi spends a considerable amount of time on the phone offering her (own)experience and expertise to those who come to her for help.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

hearing from individuals who have been helped. All are deeply grateful for what HFH has done for them and for the compassion and wisdom the founder has displayed.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

my interaction with the founder and watching her tackle difficult problems with little regard for her own time and responsibilities.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

HFH could improve the lives of many service people and their families with far less than "10 million bucks." If the organization received even modest support, the founder could draw a salary and devote even more time to this mission.
