Help On The Homefront (HOTH) is a volunteer outreach program providing support and assistance to US Armed Forces veterans who have service connected disabilities rated by the VA and are in crisis, experiencing a particular hardship, or have unmet needs. This assistance may also be available to an immediate family member of a U.S. Armed Forces member who is, or qualifies as a Gold Star Family member.  Assistance may also be available to an immediate family member who is, or qualifies as a Blue Star Family member of a deployed active duty soldier who is currently serving in a combat theater of operations.  Each case is reviewed on merit.  After reviewing a veteran's need for support, a referral to other agencies for assistance with counseling, financial management, or benefit application may take place.
