Honoring Our Founder

The Connie Mercer Fund

Connie Mercer, our CEO and founder, will transition from her role as CEO on September 30, 2022. Connie laid the groundwork for HomeFront’s mission with volunteers around her kitchen table thirty-one years ago, and in the years since has built an effective and important organization that stands today as a national model for how to effectively break the cycle of family poverty. Her sweeping vision, executive talent and, above all, bottomless love for children who needed a chance was the recipe for the miracle that became HomeFront.  She transformed the lives of thousands of homeless families by building the strong partnerships with the community to provide the breadth of services needed to help families break the cycle of poverty.  The best way to express our immeasurable thanks to Connie is to keep what she has built, the fortress of security that is HomeFront, as bright and strong as it needs to be for all the children to come.  Please join us today in honoring her by contributing to the Connie Fund, the Infrastructure of Hope.

90 cents of every dollar donated to HomeFront goes directly to services for homeless families.
