OUR GOAL

GIVE MILITARY FAMILIES THE QUALITY OF LIFE THEY DESERVE

Helping families in distress and bridging the gap between the urgent needs that arise in daily life and the long-term support other organizations are able to provide.

 

The 2014 Blue Star Family report found that over one-third of active duty and spouse respondents (36%) agreed that the costs of rent were higher than their Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH).

 

We provide an early response to help relieve the monetary stresses and challenges of military life including the needs of spouses and children.  We also support to our Veterans as they work to assimilate to civilian life and provide continued help as needed.

OUR HISTORY

CONTINUING TO SERVE THOSE WHO SERVE US

Following a distinguished military career, Mike Thornton has continued his support and involvement within the military community.   Because of his involvement, Mike often hears of families that are in need of assistance and has been fortunate enough to have friends, family and corporate benefactors willing and able to help.

 

Serving as an informal middleman over the years, the requests for assistance as well as the number of people who would like to help have continued to grow.  Now, Mike has taken the next step by creating a foundation that will allow him to  continue to educate people on the needs that exist and help as many of our military families as possible.
