ABOUT OUR PROGRAMS
Homefront America offers year-round programs to help enhance the quality of life for our military families. The programs focus on meeting the emotional and social developmental needs of the children, especially during deployment separation.
“Many of the children we serve have experienced or are currently experiencing the absence of a parent, and in some cases, the absence of both parents due to deployment,” according to Art Hasselbrink, a WWII and Korean War Seabee, and President/Co-Founder of Homefront America. “It is not uncommon to see six or more deployments since 09/11.”
Our programs are funded entirely by private citizens. These patriots share our passion to serve those who give so much to preserve our freedoms. And, it is through their kindness and generosity that make it possible for us to do what we do. We are truly blessed and deeply grateful for their support.
Homefront America is staffed 100% by volunteers. As a result, we are able to maintain a very low overhead. If you wish to help support any of our programs, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 949-248-9468.

The Homefront America Easter EggStravaganza brings smiles to both adults and children alike. Sponsors delight in filling the baskets, and the children are overjoyed to receive them.
Families enjoy a stress-free day filled with fun and enjoyment . . . made possible by our friends and supporters. The day begins with a Easter brunch for the entire family to enjoy, followed by visits to the petting zoo and photo ops with the Easter Bunny.
The children can hunt for eggs, and/or explore their creative talents at the egg coloring/crafts & activities table. And, at the end of the day, each child takes home his/her very own Easter basket - custom filled with lots of goodies by our special team of Homefront America Angels. Our Angels are truly a special breed!
BACK TO SCHOOL “PACK FOR SUCCESS”
What better way to help empower our little Marines, Sailors, Airmen, Coasties, and Soldiers, than to provide them with the tools they need to succeed in life. The program provides each registered child with a backpack filled with school supplies appropriate for his/her specific grade level. This ensures that a kindergartener does not receive protractor, or a high schooler receives a box of crayons.
GIVING THANKS TO HEROES
Even Turkeys want to do their part to help support our Troops! Every Thanksgiving, Homefront America volunteers put together more than 200 Thanksgiving food baskets for our military families to enjoy. In addition to the food baskets, families also receive a certificate that can be used to redeem for a turkey of their choice.

Our sponsors never cease to amaze us with their outpour of love and support for our military families. Their kindness and generosity go beyond the words “spirit of giving.” Each year, their support makes it possible for us to provide 1500 - 2000 military family members with a Christmas like no other.
To ensure “no child is behind,” Homefront America sponsors two different programs during the holiday season: Homefront Santa and Gifts for our Little Unsung Heroes.
Homefront Santa endeavors to match sponsors to military families. Gifts for our Little Unsung Heroes provides each registered child with unwrapped toys and/or gift cards. In addition, holiday meals for families are also provided.
