Welcome Home Heroes Program

Since 2003, The Home Front Cares has been welcoming home planes of soldiers returning home to Colorado Springs from Iraq and Afghanistan with a handshake, a McDonald's Quarter Pounder with Cheese, a Coca-Cola and smile of gratitude. Volunteers are there to greet these planes any time, day or night. One of the individuals who started the program, Al Batey, says it "is the right thing to do. And it never gets old, welcoming these soldiers who are protecting our freedom oversees. Now they need us to protect them.” Read more about the Hungry Heroes Program here. For more information on how you can welcome home our brave troops, please contact us at or 719-209-4613. 

Community Got Your Six

What does it mean to tell someone “I’ve got your six?” On the battlefield, you’re constantly looking forward and around, but you often need someone to help cover your back. In our military, if someone tells you they’ve “got your six” it means they’ve got your back. The saying was coined by fighter pilots during World War I when referencing directions – with the front of the plane being in the 12 o’clock position and the rear of the plane at six o’clock.

Community Got Your Six is a way for our local community to show the service members and veterans that The Home Front Cares works with that we’ve got their six during their current financial crisis by writing notes of encouragement, which we will then pass along to them at the time of assistance. This is a simple, but extremely meaningful way to support our military and veteran families - and a great way to get your kids involved in giving back! Please click here to download more information.
