Our Commitment

The mission of Operation First Response, Inc (OFR) is to serve all branches of our nation’s Wounded Heroes/Disabled Veterans and their families with personal and financial needs. Services are provided from the onset of injuries or illness, throughout their recovery period and along their journey from military life to the civilian world. Financial aid varies as each case is based on individual needs ranging from rent, utilities, vehicle payments, groceries, clothing, and travel expenses.

Operation First Response is a vehicle for a proud America.

We could not serve our wounded Heroes and their families without your support. Donating to our organization ensures that our Heroes get the help they need and deserve in troubling times upon their return home.

We Need Your Help To Continue Serving America’s Finest During the COVID-19 Pandemic.

It is in times of crisis that Americans come together and support each other. As we are all aware of the recent events regarding COVID-19, we can safely assume many agencies and programs will need support in the coming days, weeks and months.

While the medical component is of great concern, we at Operation First Response are focused on the non-medical side, the impact of not having income due to lost wages. We know that people who perhaps have never needed services in the past will suddenly be at the point of need. OFR will be providing essential assistance such as food, mortgages and rent, utilities, vehicle repairs and other basic needs.

We could not do this without you. 2020 was a difficult year as all of our fundraising events were canceled due to COVID-19 and in 2021 we adapted to a ‘new normal’ but events were limited and as a result, fundraising was again difficult. We and those we serve, sincerely appreciate your generosity during this unprecedented time.

We are reaching out to our donors and partners so we can keep our communities strong. We believe now more than ever that it is crucial for all types of funding to be able to give the needed assistance and aid to our Active Duty Service Members, Disabled Veterans, their families and our First Responders.

We will not be able to support these families in crisis without your support now!

Together, we are stronger!

From our team to each of you, we thank you!

Please join us in giving the gift of hope to end PTSD.

We have been on this journey for 18 years and served over 25,419 Military and First Responders’ families beginning from the onset of injury, throughout their recovery and their transition into the civilian world. During this time we have modified our assistance with the needs of their journey. The daunting rise in suicides during the past years has become a significant concern and putting a stop to this issue has become a high priority for our staff, understanding that we may not be able to stop every suicide however every successful attempt is a significant accomplishment. The ripple effects of suicide span generations so every effort needs to be made to end this epidemic.

Stellate Ganglion Block (SGB) for treatment of PTSD

In April of 2018, we were made aware of the Stellate Ganglion Block (SGB) procedure, however not covered by insurance, many of our Heroes would not have the option to receive the procedure. After extensive investigating of the SGB procedure, we felt led to take this endeavor on and since have had the honor of assisting 170 Veterans with the cost of the procedure.

Since the recent media exposure for this procedure, we are receiving many new requests for assistance with the cost.

We need your help, your donations will bring hope for our Heroes to move forward.

Give our Heroes Hope for a Better Tomorrow
