Our Goal

A Christian Service to all junior enlisted military families in gratitude for their service.

This outreach provides a practical way to lift some of the burdens on our military families and a meaningful way to say thank you for their sacrifices in service to our country. Your donations and participation as volunteers make it possible. We serve families of all faiths.

Our small staff is made up mainly of military wives who themselves are faced with the stresses of long separations from loved ones while continuing to raise families. Somehow they find time to work with SDMOM, organizing and conducting our many activities each month in military housing areas, at churches, on bases, at the new Distribution Center or in the community. They were volunteers with SDMOM for years before joining as employed staff. For them this is more than a job. Along with our many volunteers this work comes from a heart for military families.
