Our Awards

Home for the Holidays awards are given to men and women who serve the military on active duty, especially those who have been unable to reconnect with family members between multiple deployments.  Depending on an applicant’s need, Home for the Holidays may fund some or all transportation, lodging and food expenses.


Application Process

Home for the Holidays awards are determined through a process that is governed by selection criteria developed by our independent Awards Committee.  The Committee members are unrelated to all potential awardees and do not qualify for any benefits from the organization.

About Us

For too many, the expense of traveling home for holidays, special events or times of family need is a luxury that is delayed or skipped.  Home for the Holidays is a 501 (c) (3) not-for-profit organization devoted to bringing together families who are physically separated during important occasions.  We provide support to unite people with loved ones when they would not otherwise have the opportunity or means to be together.


Our Mission

Our mission is to unite active duty military families who cannot afford to be together for important occasions.


Who We Serve

The men and women who serve in our country’s military make great personal sacrifices.  Separated from loved ones, they are unable to share both every day and extraordinary life experiences.  For these men and women, so much can happen while they are aware from home.  Home for the Holidays wants to help give active duty service men and women the opportunity to be a part of these memories or to be with loved ones in times of need.
