Operation Homefront

Together, Southern New Hampshire University and Operation Homefront are helping create opportunities for military spouses and their families. As part of this initiative, we sponsor annual gala events across the country, where we award SNHU scholarships to military spouses – so they can transform their lives and the lives of those around them.

Operation Homefront is a national nonprofit organization that provides emergency financial and housing assistance to military spouses and families, including the families of E1-E6 active-duty service members and all wounded warriors. The organization supplies food assistance, auto and home repair, vision care, travel and transportation, moving assistance, essential home items and financial assistance.
