We are an ALL VOLUNTEER non-profit organization dedicated to our military heroes and those they love. Here are just some of the ways we help...
We welcome home young, single service members.
Operation Rack Pack: Join us as we spend the day preparing a hero's welcome home for young, single service members returning from deployment to barracks. Volunteers spend the day light cleaning, making beds, and staging welcome home gifts & messages.
We celebrate little heroes dealing with deployment and give respite to their parents on the home front.
OHH Camp JOY: Celebrate our littlest heroes and give mom/dad on the homefront a well-deserved 5 hour break.. Volunteers spend a fun-filled day helping children through fun activity rotations.
We shower new and expecting mommies with spouses deployed with appreciation.
OHH Baby Shower: Help us pamper and love on new and expecting mommies who are shouldering the burden of having a spouse deployed. Volunteers help provide a day of fun & networking opportunities for new moms.
We spread the joy and Spirit of Christmas to military families, single service members, children and unit events.
Operation Christmas Spirit: Spread the Spirit of Christmas through this program, whether it's through service, sponsoring families, creating care package for singles, collecting toys for children or volunteering for unit parties.
We assist families in crisis.
Operation Enduring Support: Care for families in emergency situations with your donations, time and talents. Through this program we privately help families in crisis-- those dealing with death, illness, natural disasters, and emergency situations. We provide food, gently used furniture, childcare, baby necessities, household goods, gift cards and in some cases financial help.
