Moving Our Heroes Home
Operation Homefront has created the Homes on the Homefront program through a new partnership with Chase Bank, Bank of America and Wells Fargo. Part of the American dream always has been owning a home. After helping to secure the freedoms all Americans enjoy, we want to help our warriors and their families realize their own American dreams.
- Military families and veterans can apply for a home through the Homes on the Homefront programs.
- Once a home becomes available, you will be notified via email.
- You will have 10 business days from the date the notice is sent to determine if you want to apply further for a particular home. If you further wish to be considered for a particular home mentioned in an email you receive, you will need to indicate that by following the instructions outlined in the email.
- A client services representative will be assigned to each available home and will review all applications for each home. The client services representative will then submit the qualified applicants to a housing committee who will select the applicant that will be the recipient of the home. Selection is made on a case-by-case basis and includes such factors as: financial need, connection to the local community where the home is available, injury status, family size, etc.
Once selected for a home, the family will reside in the property as a tenant of Operation Homefront for a period between one and two years. During this time, families will be required to pay any actual costs of property taxes, insurance, and homeowner's association fees. A customized transition plan will be developed in conjunction with each family. Families also will have routine inspections of the home, participate in financial counseling and any other activity required by their assigned client services representative. Families will be required to save enough funds to ensure they can maintain the property long-term. Once the requirements of the transition plan have been fully satisfied and the family is able to maintain and sustain the costs of the home, the property will be deeded to the family.
If you have any questions about this program before you apply, please contact us at 210-659-7756.
Everyone at Operation Homefront expresses their sincere gratitude to all our service members and their families for helping to keep our country free!
