Grand Opening of Operation Homefront's Transitional Housing Village - San Antonio, TX
Operation Homefront celebrated the grand opening of its new Transitional Housing Village in north central San Antonio. This impactful program, which started in 2008, enables the families of wounded, ill, and injured service members recovering in major military medical centers to heal together, while bridging what can be a lengthy gap between when military pay ends and veteran benefits begin, or when veterans’ disability claims are reviewed and received. Since 2008, Operation Homefront's Transitional Housing program has provided temporary homes for more than 500 military families, defraying more than $5.2 million in rent and utility costs.

The new San Antonio Village location replaces the previous Village on the city’s east side and joins Villages in San Diego and the Washington, DC area – each near major military medical and Veterans Affairs facilities. With the support of the A. James and Alice B. Clark Foundation, The Home Depot Foundation, Genentech Foundation, Veterans United Home Loans Foundation and other donors and partners, Operation Homefront continues to provide transitional housing and comprehensive support services to wounded warriors and their families.
