Home Front Military Network
Colorado is home to over 400,000 veterans and service members. In December 2020, the unemployment rate in Colorado was 8.4 percent, up 2 percent from November 2020, and nearly 6 percent from 2019. Home Front Military Network (HFMN) provides emergency financial assistance and case management through a network of 47 local service providers to help service members, veterans and their families navigate support systems and access services. Since the COVID-19 pandemic began, HFMN has seen a surge in need for emergency financial assistance. This BWF grant will provide emergency financial assistance and case management to 18 veteran/military families, ensuring that they sustain housing, meet their basic needs, and are connected to additional services providing upstream support.
