Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
Build strong, stable, and secure military families so they can thrive in the communities that they’ve worked so hard to protect.
By connecting the American donor community to our military families through a robust array of valued and life-changing programs that address the specific short-term and critical assistance, long-term stability and recurring support needs they experience, Operation Homefront is able to help military families overcome many of the challenges inherent in military life. The result: stronger, more stable, and more secure military families. Our programs include:
SHORT-TERM CRITICAL ASSISTANCE (RELIEF)
Financial assistance* for food, utilities, home repairs, rent/mortgage payments, etc.
Rent-free transitional housing for wounded service members
LONG-TERM STABILITY (RESILIENCY)
Mortgage-free homes awarded across the U.S.
RECURRING FAMILY SUPPORT

Homefront Celebrations to recognize military spouses
Holiday programs to provide meals and toys
