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 . 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 Intiative. 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.
Homefront Hugs USA Inc. is an outstanding organization for supporting our nation's troops and veterans. The leader of this organization is a former military spouse raising a USAF dependent who lost his father to brain cancer. She founded this organization and has been volunteering her time and efforts for the last 15 years to be an actual DOER of supporting our military veterans and active-duty troops. As a retired senior NCO, I personally donate to this organization and highly recommend you consider partnering with Homefront Hugs USA Inc. so that they can continue their mission of #SOT and #SOV. Thanks for all you do Alessandra and Ed!
My family and I have enjoyed helping show appreciation to many service men and women around the world through the Homefront Hugs organization. During the 8+ years that we have volunteered with Homefront Hugs, there have always been ways to show appreciation that fit our busy homeschool lifestyle. We have made cards to be sent in care packages, greeted WWII veterans coming back from an honor flight to Washington, D.C., and donated financially to helping get the care packages sent to troops all around the world, to help send a little love from here.
I know Alessandra personally and am very impressed with how donations coming in go directly to getting the care packages out - she doesn't collect any salary for herself. Alessandra, as well as her son Ed who also assists in the organization, have a heart to help no service member, or their families, feel forgotten. Our family is happy to come alongside and help support this mission in the many ways offered that fit into our lifestyle.
I love volunteering with this organization for many reasons. I like that it's something I can do on my own time and with my family. It's definately a great feeling knowing I can help cheer up a deployed military person. Homefront Hugs makes it very easy to volunteer and are quick to respond. I truly feel this is one of the best organizations around today!!

I highly recommend the Homefront Hugs organization to anyone who wants to do something special for a service man or woman and/or their families in the US and deployed. While there are a variety of ways that individuals can support HH, the one-on-one pairing with a specific soldier provides a special sense of "adoption" and the chance to think of the individual as family. The president, Alessandra, is an awesome individual who somehow gives each volunteer an opportunity to do something that fits their schedule and unique intentions. This is a wonderful way to support our heros and their families.

My children and I volunteer for Homefront Hugs and have experienced firsthand how helpful it is to troops and their families! So many have been touched by this organization in so many ways; injured troops, medical personnel in military hospitals and the families of those who are unable to be at home right now. Imagine how the care packages, cards and letters brighten the day of those who receive them and show them that they are cared about and not forgotten! The beauty of Homefront Hugs is that you can volunteer in so many ways and whenever you are able. If you are looking for a way to support those who fight to keep our country free...Homefront Hugs is for you!
