Operation Homefront is a nonprofit organization that was formed in February 2002. It was developed to support the families of deployed service members immediately following 9/11. Operation Homefront is headquartered in San Antonio, Texas, and has evolved into a major nonprofit. The organization currently provides services to military families across the nation with 25 chapters serving 30 states. The national office handles cases in states that do not have their own chapters. The majority of our clients are the lowest-paid service members, the E-1 through E-6 enlisted ranks. Our primary mission is to provide emergency financial and other assistance to the families of our service members and wounded warriors.
The target population is American military personnel and/or their families who have unmet needs due to financial hardship, death, injury, or physical or mental detriment as a result of service in Iraq or Afghanistan. These may include active duty, Reserve, National Guard and veteran service members. They are a diverse ethnic group 64% are minorities and 36% Caucasian. Roughly 75% live at an income level 80% below the median income for the communities in which they reside.
We’re proud to earn the highest rating – four stars – for five straight years from Charity Navigator, the nation’s top independent evaluator of nonprofit organizations. Nationally, $.95 of every dollar donated to Operation Homefront goes to programs.
This week we will welcome Amy Palmer, the Chief of Programs and Field Operations for Operation Homefront to discuss the Military Child of the Year. Operation Homefront, the national nonprofit dedicated to providing emergency financial and other assistance to military families, has announced that nominations for the Military Child of the Year Awards are being accepted online at MilitaryChildOfTheYear.org through December 15, 2012. Winners will be recognized in April 2013. The Military Child of the Year Award recognizes children who stand out among their peers. Ideal candidates for the award demonstrate resilience, strength of character, and thrive in the face of the challenges of military life. These young heroes embody leadership within their families and communities. This award is presented to an outstanding child from each branch of service – Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard. The winners each receive $5,000 and a laptop, and are flown with a parent or guardian to Washington, D.C., for a special recognition ceremony on April 11. In previous years, recipients have had the honor of meeting Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Martin Dempsey, and First Lady Michelle Obama, who were guest speakers for the event awards ceremonies.
Operation: Next Chapter is “working with Soldier’s Angeles Project: Valour-IT to provided 100 voice-controlled, adaptive lap-top computers for military personnel who have lost the use of their hands. Vietnam Veteran and author Cym Lowell will donate 100 percent of the proceeds from the sale of his latest novel, Jasper’s War, to purchase these individually adapted computers which cost $500 a piece. The laptops allow warriors who are healing from amputations, paralysis, eye injuries, burns and brain trauma to stay in touch with their family and their units during their recovery period.”
Cym Lowell "was born in Montana to academics and spent his youth traveling the world. To put it politely, he was an undistinguished student, rewarded with assignment to the U.S. Navy at 18. After two years in Vietnam, college and law school were a challenge. Being a veteran in the political turbulence of the late 1960s and early 1970s taught humility. Raising three children in the Midwest and Texas brought love and responsibility. An international tax practice in the financial crises of the past 40 years provided insight into motivations of actors on the global stage. Friends, clients, adversaries, and colleagues, like victory and defeat, added color and context. The result is a writer with a treasure trove of experience to frame compelling characters enmeshed in heart-thumping challenges." Cym Lowell is the author of The Gift, Riddle of Berlin and Jaspar's War.

Haley Van Scoyoc of St Petersburg, Florida has Operation Snuggle Up off the ground. Tune in and hear all aobut it. It caught our interest, as it is very much like our own Project Warm Up. It is winter. It is cold. And there are still a large number of working people that must sleep outdoors because their income simply isn't enough. There is also another population that has no income that is in even worse shape. Offering warmth--blankets, coats, hats, gloves, etc won't solve all their problems... but it is definitely a great outreach that can lead to them getting screened for benefits and employment, thus getting off the streets for good.
