This home in Plainfield, Illinois is one of three mortgage-free homes Operation Homefront currently has open for application through our Homes on the Homefront program. We also have homes in Texas and North Carolina. The program provides veterans with the opportunity to move into an Operation Homefront home and work directly with OH caseworkers to learn and plan for home ownership. After successful completion of the program the veteran receives the deed to the home, mortgage-free. Veterans accepted into the HOTH program include honorably discharged or retired veterans of any era and service members currently serving in the National Guard or Reserves.
If you’re interested in applying for one of the homes, please note that we recently launched a new online application process. If you had an application in our previous system, you may need to create a new account before you can apply. To find out more about the program, eligibility requirements and view the list of homes, go to https://bit.ly/2P8dp7H .

Very proud of our OH board member, Captain Bob McGowan, USMC (ret.) who carried the flag for Operation Homefront in the Team RWB “Old Glory Relay” yesterday in downtown Pittsburgh. The "Old Glory Relay” is a 24-state, 4,300-mile journey across America to honor and connect veterans while celebrating their service and our nation’s great civilian supporters. “As a Marine and son of a WWII Marine, I have always had the greatest respect for those who serve our country and who have defended our freedoms, sometimes with their very lives. I believe we owe them and their families our undying gratitude," says McGowan. Over the 62-day event, more than 10,000 hands will help carry the flag from Boston to San Diego.

In celebration of their new opening, a portion of their opening day sales will go to support Operation Homefront as we serve America's military families! Thank you!

We reached a major milestone this week! Operation Homefront awarded the deed of our 500th mortgage-free home to Army veteran Justin Pecoraro and his family in McHenry, Illinois. Pecoraro recently graduated from our Homes on the Homefront (HOTH) program, created with the assistance of Chase (which donated the home in McHenry), to award mortgage-free homes to our nation’s veterans and military families.

Five military families were put in the spotlight at The Five Star Conference this week in Dallas. “At the Five Star Conference’s Keys For Life reception, we have an opportunity to award homes to a very special and deserving group of our fellow citizens who have done so much for all of us,” said Brig Gen (ret) John I. Pray, Jr., president and CEO of Operation Homefront. “This year, five amazing military families will receive homes that will help them transition successfully to their local communities.” This is the fourth year that Operation Homefront has been invited to share this special moment at the The Five Star Institute's Conference. In addition, Ali Haralson, chief business development officer of Auction.com, presented a check for $50,000 to help us serve military families. Altogether, Operation Homefront has received over $400,000 from the real estate auction company. Thanks to all for helping us make the American dream a reality for these special families.
