What is OPHC?
Operation Heroes Connect is a nonprofit organization that partners volunteer service members and veterans with at risk youth. Founded in 2012, Operation Heroes Connect wanted to give back to the communities that have continued to support us. With so many children in need of a positive role model in their lives, the service members and veterans of OPHC can and want to answer that call.
Welcome to Operation Heroes Connect!
Founded in 2012, Operation Heroes Connect (OPHC) provides local youth with full time active duty and veteran mentors. The relationships fostered between our mentors and their respective mentees has proven to have a positive impact within the community and more importantly the mentees within our program.
In addition to its mentor program, the organization provides an annual camp program dedicated to providing a free camp experience to local youth who otherwise aren’t able to attend a summer camp due to financial restraints. Due to her own troubled upbringing our founder wanted to assist local youth through some of the rough patches that she herself experienced growing up.
The desire our mentors have to serve their country expands far beyond the front lines and foreign soil. Our need to serve our local communities are fueled by a deep belief that we have an obligation to “pay it forward” both in-and-out of uniform.

Our Mentorship Program
Our mission at Operation Heroes Connect is to partner local youth with military and veteran mentors helping them to explore and access the support, resources, and opportunities necessary for them to reach their full potential and make positive choices in their lives. Operation Heroes Connect provides support, guidance, friendship, role modeling, assistance, and an attentive ear to those in need.
Our Volunteer Program
Through our volunteer program we want to give back to those who have continued to support us. Our program is centered towards helping out in our local communities from donating our time and resources to homeless shelters, organizing food drives, and assisting others. It is our pleasure to have an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of people in our community!
