Welcome to Operation Fairborn Cares

“Our men and women in unform stand watch abroad and more are readying to deploy. To each and every one of them, and to the families who bear the quiest burden of their absence, Americans are united in sending one message: we honor your service, we are inspired by your sacrifice, and you have our unyielding support." And just as they must have the resources they need in a war, we all have a responsibility to support them when they come home." - President Barrack Obama, Commander in Chief

"A community-based solution is required for channeling the tide of the Sea of Goodwill to assist high-and low-risk Service members, veterans, and families as they adjust and reintegrate into civilian life. Prioritizing and linking the needs of warriors and families with donors in an organized fashion will allow a better application of resources. We can organize these efforts in a clear way; bridge the gap between Service and veteran transition; offer our wounded, ill, and injured a better lifetime continum of care; and support them and their family."

"The scope of this project is wide and the President's message was clear - America must support its men and women in uniform and their families. That said, it is important to define information, options, and services." (From white paper "Sea of Goodwill" written by MAJ John W. Copland and COL David W. Sutherland, Office of the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Warror and Family Support.

Our clients come from many directions - the county Veterans Service Organization, Wright State University, the American Legion, city schools and off the street. Everyone is different but they all have basic needs. OFC takes great effort to respect their pride and dignity. Many of them almost have to be dragged into the office. They are ashamed to ask for help.

"The truth of the matter is that you always know the right thing to do. The hard part is doing it." - Norman Schwarzkopf


"One veteran, his wife and small child right before Chrsitmas. They were in a local motel, their room rent was running out and they had not place to go and no money. OFC paid for two weeks of rent, provided a tub of groceries, worked with the American Legion to pull together some other items for Christmas gifts for the baby, more food and a roll of quarters to do laundy."

"OFC literally saved my family and my life from a terrible car accident by having a diagnostic check done on my car. When the mechanic put the car on the lift my wheel fell off. My car was in terrible condition and OFC fixed everything they could fix. The computer I had been using in my classes as WSU was broken. OFC arranged for it to be repaired. This saved me from doing all my homework and one online class from my cell phone. Just when I thought I was going to have the most difficult last quarter at WSU, OFC stepped into my life and howed an amount of care and concern for every problematic situation that I had at that time. Not only did they care but OFC acted immediately and made my last quarter smoothly. I was able to complete my BA in Philosophy."
