About Us

In 2013, Gordon Robertson, CEO of the Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN), recognized the need to help military families. “When I heard about the needs, I went to the Lord and asked, ‘What can we do? How can we start meeting the needs?’” As a ministry arm of CBN, Helping the Home Front was launched, partnering with local churches and ministries to support military families.

CBN’s headquarters is located in Virginia Beach near many military bases, so starting in our own backyard made a lot of sense. From its beginnings in a tiny UHF station in Portsmouth, Virginia, CBN is now broadcasting the Gospel around the world. Helping the Home Front (HHF) has expanded, too, helping military families across America and around the world. HHF has grown beyond expectations, and we are excited about what God has in store for the future. 


When we think about the military, we are reminded of those who protect our country. Here at home, their families are serving, too. We want to recognize and honor their service.

Our vision is to provide financial support to ministries and churches near every military installation across the United States, to better enable them to support military families in their community. Helping the Home Front has resources available to help military families with hardships and give them a fresh start.

Our mission is to financially assist churches and ministries so they can better support and disciple military families. After identifying unexpected hardships within active-duty military families, Helping the Home Front partners with local churches and ministries to meet those needs.
