Mission Statement

At Homefront Hugs USA, we leave politics at the door and support our troops,veterans and families without conditions- letting no hero ever feel forgotten. We are a volunteer organization and in our 15th year. We inspire stewardship in children, the disabled, the elderly and anyone who wants to make a difference in this world today... including disaster relief especially during hurricanes which have hit our headquarters and surrounding communities more than once.

Making a difference begins with us and we can make it happen if we unite instead of finding differences which divide us. Our site is dedicated to our WWII veterans and some special heroes who have served our country includibg a special Jewish grandfather who helped prosecute the Nazis at the Nuremburg trials and inspired the founder of Homefront Hugs. Our motto- Freedom Endures.

Description

At Homefront Hugs USA, we have missions to help our wounded & sick warriors, to adopt troops and military families, a kids' & teen page,and many missions to support the military families manning the homefront including advocacy and education along with crisis intervention especially with PTSD. Suicide rates have spiked and this is a national tragedy.

We welcome everyone to join our missions from all walks of life and beliefs. It is not " P/C." It is who we are here and reflected in the amazing dedicated volunteers who have been with Homefront Hugs for years - some for over a decade .

One can sign up for our newsletter first. You can do this all from home and your computer or help one of our missions in your comunity,school,or business . You can volunteer and take breaks when needed as long as you keep us informed . Life happens.

At Homefront Hugs we need volunteers to write cards and send needs to our wounded & sick veterans in hospitals,to help pack lunchboxes & backpacks for disaster victims, or just join us as volunteers and help share hope and resources for our homeless and hurting veterans with visible & invisible wounds. Teenagers and college students are welcome as interns and to obtain credit & can start their own volunteer clubs . Seniors can start clubs as well and choose projects of their own or one of ours . We value every volunteer and every veteran from every religion,race,gender, sexual affiliation and political belief. Our veterans did not pick and choose whom they served and protected - and neither do we at Homefront Hugs .

We value your help in sharing our missions as we also need support for our missions via monetary donations where 100% of your help is utilized for missions . NO ONE earns a penny here at Homefront Hugs . We are all volunteers . With donations monthly care packages are sent all over the USA and world to our wounded and deployed men and women in uniform .

Bottom line, we need you ! Giving back to our country and our communities- is what Homefront Hugs is all about - so no hero is ever forgotten, in thanks for our freedoms .

We are recipients of the Legion of Honor Award and 1st prize national award for volunteering from the Points of Light Foundation because of our desire to unite Americans of all backgrounds.

Welcome . We can't wait to hear from you !

Would you recommend Homefront Hugs USA,Inc?

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!
