Better Business Bureau and Operation Homefront have entered into a collaborative partnership to better serve military service members and their families. The new partnership was announced during Military Saves Week to emphasize the importance of financial readiness to military readiness.

The two organizations offer complementary services. BBB focuses on financial education through its BBB Military Line program. Operation Homefront provides emergency financial assistance grants. In this partnership BBB will refer military families to Operation Homefront for emergency financial and other assistance needs and in turn, Operation Homefront will refer military families to BBB for assistance in resolving issues with their creditors. Additionally, Operation Homefront will help highlight financial education tips and educational materials provided by BBB Military Line.

"When organizations work together, each playing to their strengths, we have the ability to affect positive outcomes for our military families" said Jim Knotts, Operation Homefront president and CEO. "Operation Homefront has always taken an active approach to collaboration. We look forward to working with BBB to help our military service members and wounded warriors become more financially self-sustaining."

"BBB is honored to work with Operation Homefront to help meet the immediate needs of military families in crisis," said Brenda Linnington, director of BBB Military Line, "as well as helping to reduce these emergency situations through better financial education. This is a valuable partnership that will greatly serve the men and women who selflessly serve our country."

Operation Homefront is an Accredited Charity with BBB Wise Giving Alliance. Recognized for superior performance by leading independent charity watchdog groups, nationally, 93 percent of total donations to Operation Homefront go directly to programs that provide support to our military families.
