Apr 16th, 2019 by dearmilfamily at 7:00 am

Operation Homefront's Military Child of the Year grant program started fifteen years ago. Since then, they've had more than 50 children named as MCOYs. These amazing military kids display the resiliency, inventiveness, generosity, and service that we come to expect of milkids. I talked with each of the seven 2019 winner's about their experiences with military life and how they cope.

Operation Homefront is a national 501(c)(3) nonprofit whose mission is to build strong, stable, and secure military families so they can thrive — not simply struggle to get by — in the communities they have worked so hard to protect. For over fifteen years, we have provided programs that offer: RELIEF (through Critical Financial Assistance and transitional housing programs), RESILIENCY (through permanent housing and caregiver support services) and RECURRING FAMILY SUPPORT programs and services throughout the year that help military families overcome the short-term bumps in the road so they don’t become long-term chronic problems. Operation Homefront has consistently earned high ratings from leading charity rating services, including Charity Navigator, which gave OH 4 Stars for 11 consecutive years for superior service and accountability. At Operation Homefront, 92 percent of expenditures goes directly toward delivering programs and services to the military families who need it most.
