It's a great feeling. To get RELIEF
during a crisis, a place to RECOVER if you need it
and a little bit of RECOGNITION for a life of
sacrifice. That's what we do at Operation Homefront... and
it's making a difference.
Operation Homefront assists military families during difficult financial times by providing food assistance, auto and home repair, vision care, travel and transportation, moving assistance, essential home items, and financial assistance.

Other Operation Homefront Programs
We support every military family member. We annually host a Military Child of the Year Award, with one winner from each branch of military service receiving a monetary stipend and a trip to Washington, D.C. for a special recognition ceremony.
The Holiday Meals for Military program began Thanksgiving 2009 as a result of a chance encounter in a supermarket in Utica, New York near Fort Drum. A soldier, his wife, and infant had a handful of grocery items they could not afford, so a Beam Global employee paid the $12 for their groceries. The program has nearly doubled every year. Thanks to our generous sponsors, this year, we gave 8,500 meals to deserving military families at more than 25 locations.
Operation Homefront, through its 2015 HOLIDAY TOY DRIVE program, distributed toys and gift cards to military families across the counry. Last year, millions of toys were donated at Dollar Tree stores nationwide. These items and other holiday gifts were distributed to our most junior service members and wounded warriors to show our Nation’s appreciation and supplement the family holiday.
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.
Through on-site support communities, and our virtual community that includes an online discussion forum, Hearts of Valor provides caregivers with opportunities to build relationships, access resources and enjoy brief moments of rest and respite from their care giving responsibilities.
Service members disabled from injuries return home where they then are discharged from the service. Our young returning veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan are at risk of becoming homeless if programs are not put into place to help these service members transition back into civilian life. Our Villages allow these service members to live rent free while they go through the transition process.
We wrapped up our eighth season of Back-to-School Brigade™, a nationwide school supply collection campaign. We distributed more than 44,000 backpacks at 100+ locations, thanks to the support of our sponsors.
