The stronger our military families, the stronger our forces, and ultimately each and every one of us. We depend on our community to keep moving forward in our mission to be there for those who serve our nation so selflessly, and we can use your help. We appreciate whatever you offer: time, talent or funds. If you want to help, we have a place for you with the Operation Homefront family.
Times are tough. Contrary to popular belief, the military is not recession-proof, and the stress of 10 years of war on our military families and the families of our wounded warriors continues to present great challenges. In 2011, we met 155,984 needs for military families, including active duty, Guard and Reserve members from all branches of service. Since its inception, Operation Homefront has provided more than $92 million dollars of funding to programs to benefit military families.
Your money and talents will be put to good use. We’ve received a four-star rating from Charity Navigator for 6 years running, which places Operation Homefront in a category that only 4% of non-profits rated by the watch dog group ever achieve. We’ve also earned high ratings from the American Institute of Philanthropy, Better Business Bureau, Wise Giving Alliance and Combined Federal Campaign. Nationally, $.94 of total revenue donated to Operation Homefront goes to our programs that meet the needs of our military families and wounded warriors. Throughout the year, we host special morale events for our military and wounded warrior families, such as Homefront Celebrations, Back to School Brigade, Holiday Toy Drives, and special retreats for wounded warrior spouses.
