Our mission is to unite active duty military families who cannot afford to be together for important occasions.
For too many, the expense of traveling home for holidays, special events or times of family need is a luxury that is delayed or skipped.
Home for the Holidays is a 501 (c) (3) not-for-profit organization devoted to bringing together families who are physically separated during important occasions.
We provide support to unite people with loved ones when they would not otherwise have the opportunity or means to be together.
The men and women who serve in our country’s military make great personal sacrifices. Separated from loved ones, they are unable to share both every day and extraordinary life experiences. For these individuals, so much can happen while they are away from home.
Home for the Holidays wants to help give active duty service men and women the opportunity to be a part of these memories or to be with loved ones in times of need.
Home for the Holidays awards are given to men and women who serve the military on active duty, especially those who have been unable to reconnect with family members between multiple deployments. Depending on an applicant’s need, Home for the Holidays may fund some or all transportation, lodging and food expenses.
Home for the Holidays awards are determined through a process that is governed by selection criteria developed by our independent Awards Committee. The Committee members are unrelated to all potential awardees and do not qualify for any benefits from the organization.
Since beginning operations, Home for the Holidays has united 52 military families -- a total of 137 individuals!
