The Home Front Cares provides an emergency financial bridge and responsive support to Colorado’s military members, veterans and their families impacted by service to our Nation.

That Colorado military members, veterans and their families achieve stability and hope for a successful future. 

THFC began in 2003 as an all-volunteer initiative led by two retired Air Force colonels, Bob Carlone and Joe Henjum. As Vietnam veterans, they were keenly aware of the financial and emotional struggles for families of deployed military members, and how easily these families could fall through the cracks of bureaucracy and society. In 2004, the organization incorporated as a 501(c)3, and in our first full year of operation, we provided some $34,000 in aid to military families in the Pikes Peak region. Since then, THFC has grown into a statewide agency with multiple staff members serving all branches of the U.S. military, including Reservists and the Colorado National Guard. In 2015, nearly 100% of our clients were veterans now separated from the service.

Our administrative overhead is about 20% (2016 audit) — an outstanding figure for a non-profit. Approximately 80 cents of every dollar goes toward aid and programs. According to Guidestar, the vast majority of veteran serving organizations provide no direct financial assistance to families in need. And, only 10% provide over $250,000 annually. The Home Front Cares is proud to be a part of this 10% nationwide with over $400,000 in direct financial assistance provided to Colorado military and veteran families last year. 

The Home Front Cares is a non-profit organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the IRS code. Donations are tax deductible to the maximum extent allowed by law.
