I recently got a list of online resources for military personnel and their families in an e-mail from Lynn Wiggert and wanted to share it here. Thanks, Lynn, for pulling all this information together for us!
I am aware of “Operation Homefront”. I don’t
think there is a MN chapter but maybe the national office can help.
Here is what operation homefront does:
Command officials, chaplains, family support centers and other military
nonprofits refer 71 percent of our cases to us. The rest of our cases come
through our online community and word-of-mouth.
Here’s how we would handle a typical case:
1. Operation Homefront takes a call from a young family who, in addition to the
emotional stress of deployment , does not have the experience or financial
resources to handle a crisis that normally
occurs in military life.
2. We work with local media partners and our Web site to request specific
assistance (such as car transmission repair services) and then coordinate those
services with the family, typically within 24 hours.
3. After the crisis is over, our counselors (often experienced military wives
themselves) work with the family to better prepare their household finances,
outline the resources available through the military and introduce them to a
community of other military families to help them develop a social support
4. Few clients need assistance a second time, and many come back to volunteer
Plus below is more info from other organizations:
