Part of the American dream has always been owning a home. Operation Homefront's Permanent Homes for Veterans (PHV) program prepares veterans and their families for home ownership by providing a mortgage-free home and the opportunity to work directly with OH caseworkers and financial counselors. Since 2012, OH has deeded over 600 homes to military families (PHV).
Additionally, Operation Homefront's Transitional Housing ("Villages") provides rent-free, furnished apartments to wounded, ill, and injured warriors and their families where they can live together while transitioning to civilian life. The Villages are designed to enable families to heal together, while bridging what can be a lengthy gap between military pay ending and veteran benefits beginning, or when veterans' disability claims are reviewed and received. Since 2008, OH has defrayed nearly $6.8 million in rent and utility costs to military families.
