This fun and festive event raises much-needed funds to fly ill and injured soldiers, sailors and Marines home for the holidays, so they can wake up in their own beds on Christmas morning. Although we cannot erase their wounds and daily struggles, we can give our service members the gift of a joyful reunion with their loved ones.
In 2018, your generosity of over $1,000,000 helped make the flight home possible for hundreds of injured warriors. Please join us again this year as work to ensure that all service members who wore the uniform for their country can call their families and say, “I’ll be home for Christmas.”

Freedom Station II: The Home of the Brave
Freedom Station has been a groundbreaking program. When we opened our doors in 2011, it became the first transitional housing residence of its kind in the San Diego region – a place for healing, personal growth and preparation for the transition to civilian life. The model has been proven, with dozens of Freedom Station residents becoming success stories - embarking on new career pursuits, college or vocational education; finding their passion and purpose; attaining independent living, and starting families of their own.
Today, San Diego remains home to one of the largest military populations in the world. To meet the need, the foundation has purchased a second property. The new transitional housing residence has been named Freedom Station II, a nod to its sister property and the continuing mission to help San Diego’s warriors successfully transition from military service to civilian life.
Freedom Station II is currently undergoing renovations and improvements to make it beautiful, accessible, and above all, worthy of being the “home of the brave.” The anticipated grand opening date is spring 2020.
