SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why The Capistrano Dispatch is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.
The Capistrano Dispatch
Homefront America, an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) military outreach and support nonprofit, has joined forces with the city of San Juan Capistrano to provide expanded support to the city’s adopted 1st Battalion, 11th Marine Regiment at Camp Pendleton. Since adopting the 1/11 in 2006, the city has worked with community residents and volunteers to support 1/11 Marines, Sailors, and their families.
At the City Council’s Dec. 6 meeting, Council members voted to partner with Homefront America and established a Memorandum of Understanding, which allows Homefront America “to act as the liaison on behalf of the city to provide support services, organize events and solicit support for 1st Battalion, 11th Marine Regiment.”
Mamie Yong Maywhort and Arthur Hasselbrink founded Homefront America in 2005. The organization provides a wide range of year-round programs that support military families, including 1/11 families at Camp Pendleton and surrounding military communities. Its mission is to provide meaningful programs that nurture and enrich social and emotional well-being.
