We are an all volunteer 501 c 3 non-profit organization comprised of community leaders, business owners, military spouses, and military family members. Our advisory team includes active duty service members who volunteer their time, wounded warriors to give us perspective, retirees, and single service members. It takes a village to accomplish our goals... and it's really all of our volunteers all over the country who make OHH work.
All of our Board Members, Project Directors and volunteers donate their time and talents because we have a passion for serving those who sacrifice so much for our country. We welcome your questions and comments, and we'd love to have you join our team of volunteers.
