Mission: Operation Homefront (OH) mission is to build strong, stable, and secure military families so they can thrive in the communities that they have worked so hard to protect.

Operation Homefront provides direct services to alleviate a military family’s or individual’s actual/complete emergency financial burden, as well as counseling and/or recovery support. Emergency financial assistance is in the form of checks paid directly to mortgage lenders, auto mechanics, contractors, hospitals, doctors, dentists and other providers. Other emergency funding assistance, which an applicant receives within 24 to 72 hours, includes the following:

  • Financial assistance
  • Emergency food
  • Emergency home repairs
  • Critical baby items: formula, food and diapers
  • Home and appliance repair
  • Furniture and household items
  • Local moving assistance
  • Community events
  • Wounded Warrior Transitional Family Housing

    Results: Since its inception, Operation Homefront has provided more than $128 million dollars of funding to programs to benefit military families.

    Direct beneficiaries per year: Last year, Operation Homefront provided $4.2 million in emergency assistance to 2,300 military, veteran and wounded warrior families.

    Programs: Operation homefront assists military families coping with deployment and injury recovery as they struggle with unforeseen budget challenges. The most common types of need are for rent/mortgage assistance, home repair, food and utilities. Transitional housing and permanent mortgage-free home programs help military families reduce debt and achieve greater stability for the future. Family support activities address the inherent challenges of military life through programs designed to sustain, uplift and transform.

Operation Homefront was able to take care of the needs of my 2 children and I. I am a single father with 2 kids that was in need of a blessing to get through the last couple of months. I am not a prideful man and I was blessed to have Operation Homefront and Mrs. Nancy Scull go far and beyond what I knew of an organization to do. They completely took care of the needs and were able to provide the help that I needed in order to make sure that my children were taken care of. From the first email to the last phone call, Operation Homefront did exactly what they said they would and Mrs. Nancy Scull was truly an Angel because she made sure to let me know all that was going on. Thank you so much to Operation Homefront for taking care of my children and I in this great time of need. God bless Operation Homefront and all those that serve within the Organization that make these blessings possible. Thank you Jesus for their hearts and for the donors that help in giving.

WWP Alumni and they did not assist me do to the nature of my disability and it makes me sick , they are not what they say they are and only worry about themselves. Help one veteran with same issues but did not assist me and this blew the mind of the WWP because they have a partnership with them and made this has made me highly disappointed.

Operation Homefront has very helped us in our time of need, because of what they do we were able to buy gift for our kids for Christmas. They were really helpful and made this very easy for us. It makes me proud to know there are people donating money and time for our military.

We want to thank Operation Homefront for their assistance with our situation. They helped us help ourselves and that means a lot. We have been in the process of trying to improve our situation and when my husband (who is in the US Army Reserves recently returned from overseas) was able to get a great job 1600 miles away they assisted us in taking care of some immediate needs so that we could put our own money towards this very important move. Operation Homefront helped us improve our situation and that was very much needed. Thank you so very much!!

Operation home front is awesome. If it wasn't for them me and my family would be homeless. Not only did they pay 2 months of our rent but they paid every bill we were behind on and they also gave us 300$ in aid for groceries. It took 5 days from the time we applied for aid for them to resolve all our problems. Thank you operation home front sincerely from a wounded warrior

This organization is wonderful in sooooo many ways. It helped my family out in a time of need where we were very low on groceries. I honestly don't know how we would have made it through the month of November without the help of this organization.

Operation Homefront is an amazing organization. Due to medical bills, I fell behind on my car payments. Not only did they assist me with that, they also helped me with groceries and baby care items just as something extra to help me out.
