As the president and founder of another charity (WISH for OUR HEROES) dedicated to helping our military members, it has truly been an honor and privilege to partner with Randi Cairns and Home From Hearts. They are an unbelievable organization dedicated to helping our veterans and their families. They are professional, well-run, and most importantly, they genuinely care about helping our veteran families. Of all the charities we have worked with since we started W4OH, they have been the best. Thank you Home Front Hearts for all that you do!! -Jeff Wells, President, W4OH

Home front Hearts goes above and beyond what most non-profits do to help military families. Randi is very knowledgeable about available resources and manages to find answers to tough questions to assist families in New Jersey.

I've had the pleasure of working with Home Front Hearts on numerous occasions and their services, expertise and knowledge of available resources is second to none. I met Randi Cairns, Executive Director for Home Front Hearts, when I was trying to find services for a wounded warrior and his family who were in dire straits. Home Front Hearts worked miracles for this family, and for many other families that I've referred to them. No matter the need, Randi and Home Front Hearts goes above and beyond to assist military families. This organization does more with less than any other organization I've come in contact with. Randi's talent for determining true needs, finding resources and helping military families should make some of the larger, well-funded non-profits working in this area take notice - she kicks their butts!

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

many ways. I've referred clients to Home Front Hearts who have been provided financial assistance, referrals to legal, medical and counseling services, information on other sources of assistance.

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

It is very difficult for military families to ask for help and Home Front Hearts gives more than is asked for in every instance. Every person I've referred to Home Front Hearts has been helped, followed up with and treated with respect and compassion

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

Absolutely amazing!

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

revolutionize the services that are provided to military members and their families.

The Oregon City, Oregon Army Strong Community Center (ASCC) would like to extend our sincere appreciation for the many times your organization has helped the Veterans and their Families who come through the doors of our office just hoping someone will care enough to assist them during their struggles.
Oregon has deployed thousands of their National Guard over these last 12 years of conflicts and wars. The economy in our state crashed in 2009 like many places and has yet to recover. Unemployment is high and it is estimated that returning soldiers unemployment rate is over 50%.
Obviously, in my line of work, I deal with a great many organizations who offer assistance. I have to say that your organization is professional, prompt, caring, respectful, and is a joy to work with. While all organizations go through times of financial short falls, you still managed to assist in some way with each request.
Congratulations on a job well done. Your program is changing lives and is vital to the success of the Military Families we assist. Thank you again,

HOme Front Hearts takes care of those left here while their loved ones are serving who have worry and fear and realtime financial and physical concerns. This organization does amazing things to support these needs. Returning servicemen and women can count on everything from a hug to assistance finding somewhere to live. I am a Huge fan being a Blue Star Mother myself.

Randi and her family were gracious enough to come and speak to the teens of our parish Confirmation program. They spoke to them about what it's like to be a military family and the sacrifices that our men and women (and their families) make every day. They were warm, outgoing and very knowledgable. Randi's spirit for caring and giving far exceeds her family. She works hard each day to help spread the word about her organization and the ways they can best serve our country's finest.

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

our parish community.

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

they're down to earth, accessible and willing to help at any level and any time.

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

Randi and her family. Generous in spirit!

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

help the men and women that serve our country, and their families, that are so often forgotten are in SO much need. They serve our country bravely and faithfully and over looked far too many timees. They would help those that know what it is to sacrifice

In my current position, I encounter, on a daily basis, many organizations claiming to, "walk-the-walk-and-talk-the-talk." However, as a professional in the field, of ensuring the needs of veterans and their respective families, I find some come-up short. Home Front Hearts, I find to be truly sincere. If you haven't met the folks, from this organization, you're at a tremendous loss, to truly understand, the real meaning of caring. I salute the folks at Home Front Hearts, for their significant efforts. I feel comfortable knowing, there are folks like Randi and her staff, still walking the planet. I've spent over 40 years in a military uniform, and am a vietnam veteran. I guess, I am slightly qualified in my assessment, of this dynamic organization of, HOME-FRONT-HEARTS....

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

The caring individuals

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

superb

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

Change the way veterans and their families are cared for, in New Jersey.

I have been witness to the dedicated and committed efforts of the Founder/Exective Director in forming this much needed organization. By serving and supporting the families that serve on behalf of all our citizens, greater communiies are forged in the process.

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

If this organization had 10 milllion dollars it could expand the provision of comprehensive services to a national level to better address the comprehensive needs of military families.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every six months
