Emergency Bill Payment help
Homefront San Diego will help a family who is in need financially. We will aid the family with immediate help on the necessities (keeping a reasonably priced car out of repossession, paying a power bill to keep the electricity on when a family is outside of base housing, keeping a vehicle insured so that it's street legal, etc.). We will follow up this bill help with advice from our debt counselor who offers his time to Homefront San Diego referred families at no cost to either the family or Homefront San Diego.
Homefront San Diego will provide a family with needed furniture through the generous donations provided by the San Diego community. We ask that all donated furniture be "fit for a hero." Furniture available through this program includes but is not limited to: dining room sets, living room furniture, bedroom sets, etc. Mattress sets are provided once per family, but only to families who do not already have one (adults/parents receive a queen and children receive a twin). We cannot upgrade your current mattress. All furniture will be delivered to you by one of our transport volunteers. Delivery times will vary based on our drivers schedules and donor availability. Occasionally our furniture volunteers can arrange for a furniture transfer to take place directly between a family and a donor if both parties are agreeable. Wait times to receive a mattress set will vary based on current demand as these are ordered in bulk.
Homefront San Diego will provide a family with needed baby furniture through the generous donations provided by the San Diego community. We only accept items that are current with safety standards so you can be assured that you will receive items that comply with these standards. Furniture available through this program includes but is not limited to: cribs, strollers, car seats, etc. Other items may be available based on available donations at any given time. Because of safety regulations, car seats are an item that we can only accept if new, so their availability will vary.
Homefront San Diego may be able to repair a vehicle for a family at no cost to the family. Vehicle repair requests are reviewed on a case by case basis. Guarantee of repair cannot be given until one of our assigned shops has first evaluated the vehicle.
Homefront San Diego will provide, at no charge to prequalified military families E5 or below, a wide range of car repairs. If you are a military family and need help with your car repair please call Homefront San Diego Hotline at 760-392-1551 to apply for assistance.
Homefront San Diego can provide a family that currently has no transportation with a donated vehicle. These vehicles are donated by the generous San Diego community and have been inspected and repaired if necessary to ensure their safety before the keys are handed over to a family.
Homefront San Diego will provide a computer to any military family requesting one. You will receive the Operating System License along with the working unit. The working system (tower, monitor, mouse, and keyboard) are all donated by the San Diego community. All of the computers have had their hard drives wiped clean and are inspected to ensure they have all necessary components.
