We give you all the ways to keep it easy and inexpensive. You can have friends help with items and letters and even postage as long as you maintain confidentiality. You also don’t need to send much because it’s the emotional support that matters most. You can do this all from home including MAILING your care packages and we show you how. We have been doing this for 20 years now at the Homefront Hugs Foundation ...since 9-11. Our volunteers come back for more and they are the reason we shine in our national award winning adoption program .
We write references for teens and adults. Teens and college students can get volunteer credit with us easily.
Do it with a friend,as a family, with your place of worship or business , with your students as a teacher,or with your social or sports club.
Our goal is to prevent the suicides, depression and isolation for hundreds who are onntheir first or 10() deployment. This is not political. We know after 20 years at war, many of our troops are stressed and need to know they are not forgotten.
Sadly we are still losing 22-24 troops and veterans per DAY to emotional wounds ... to suicide. Your letters and simple care packages brighten spirits and lift morale just as they did in World War II . We call them Homefront Hugs and the reason we have this name ( Support from the Homefront as in WWII). We are assigning within 1 week now as the need is so great.
Thanks again for helping us make sure no hero is forgotten. Email us at Adoptions@HomefrontHugs.org to apply or receive more info.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.

At Homefront Hugs Foundation, we leave politics at the door and support our troops,veterans and families without conditions- letting no hero feel forgotten . We inspire stewardship in children, the disabled, the elderly and anyone who wants to make a difference in this world today... including disaster relief and tackling our suicide crisis especially during this pandemic . We provide PPE and essential support and crisis intervention to isolated veterans in communities at large. Make a real difference with us where we unite instead of finding differences to divide us. Our site is dedicated to our WWII veterans and some special heroes who have served our country. Help make our world a gentler place . Our motto- Freedom Endures.
At Homefront Hugs, our missions include helping our wounded & seriously ill vets,adopting troops and military families , kids and teens to give back, advocacy with crisis intervention addressing military suicides,disaster relief. We need volunteers to write cards and send needs to our wounded & sick veterans in hospitals,to help our homeless/isolated veterans and their brave families . With our military suicide crisis, our goal is to reduce these tragedies through prevention, intervention and advocacy for better mental health care & funding our Healing Canines Initiative. During this pandemic, the isolation and needs are greater than ever. Teenagers and college students are encouraged to start their own Homefront Hugs clubs nationwide . Seniors and our special needs population are always invited to help here. We value every volunteer, every veteran from all walks of life. No one earns a penny at Homefront Hugs . Monetary donations are always needed to mail care packages to wounded and deployed men and women in uniform, for stewardship programs,disaster relief missions and suicide prevention. Giving back to our country and our communities in thanks for our freedoms is what Homefront Hugs is about and many teenagers join us choosing their own project even registering citizens to vote, helping cheer up kids in the hospital, helping the Humane Society, or visiting isolated veterans - so no hero is forgotten. Our volunteers are the reason we shine . We hope you join us too.
