I've learned that this organization has better than an 80/20 direct services to admin cost ratio, is rated by other nonprofits as the most responsive and 5% of responding clients stated the timeliness and response saved their lives. Their latest data shows life was improved for 472 children, over 300 had grants provided that kept them at work or at home or in school, and 1200 received other services. They don't give hand-outs, they give a hand up.
Review from Guidestar
Over the last 10 years I have personally watched The Home Front Cares (THFC) change the lives of hundreds of service men and women, many of whom were literally at the end of their rope. THFC is very careful not to just throw money at a problem, but rather look for those opportunities where they can make a real difference in someone's life by helping them work past a dark or seemingly impossible time in their lives. I have been very impressed by the efficient use of the donors' money--making sure to maximize what goes to help the serviceman or woman in need and keeping administrative expenses to the bare minimum. I'm proud to be associated with such and organization that is recognized around our community as doing such a wonderful job for our servicemen and women, their families and veterans.
THFC is an organization that Veterans and their families can depend upon for emergency assistance in the Pikes Peak Region. They are phenomenal community partners and a great representation of Colorado generosity.

This charity takes great care of military families.
The Home Front Cares is an organization that has helped thousands of Veterans and their families. We are truly blessed to have them in our community!
I recently attended a fundraising banquet for the Home Front Cares. It was an amazing experience and something that I will now do annually. It is obvious how much they truly care about the military community in Colorado Springs. The testimonials from people who have received assistance brought tears to my eyes. Thank you Home Front Cares!
What this group does is amazing! I was staggered when I heard how many vets are in need because of hardships, and the fact that these folks are doing something about it is truly inspiring! I'm telling everyone I know to give to this group!
Having had a father who served multiple tours of duty in several war zones, the mission of The Home Front Cares is very near and dear to my heart. When I hear stories of military veterans being evicted from housing and sleeping in their cars with their families, it's clear that the government is failing individuals who put their lives on the line to protect our freedom. We owe our returning service men and women so much more. We owe them a huge debt of gratitude for their sacrifice.
The Home Front Cares bridges that gap and offers help. They offer hope when all hope is gone in the form of emergency financial aid to deserving veterans in need. And because of that, I am happy and proud to support their efforts.
Working in a non-profit that serves active duty and veterans myself, I rub shoulders with this organization constantly & they are nothing short of exceptional. They are very accommodating, personable & you can easily see that from the top down, those that work at The Home Front Cares truly do care. They have changed lives & given hope to those in need. I am proud to work in concert with them as we try and assist our military service members, past & present, with their unique challenges.
