Omni Hotels & Resorts Partners with Operation Homefront to Honor Veteran Caregivers during Military Appreciation Month
DALLAS (May 9, 2022) – In observance of Military Appreciation Month, Omni Hotels & Resorts is pleased to partner with Operation Homefront, to provide vacation stays in support of Operation Homefront’s Veteran Caregiver Support program, a network of people caring for wounded, ill or injured service members and veterans. After identifying states with a concentration of caregivers, seven Omni hotels, located throughout Texas, and one in Atlanta, were selected to provide weekend getaways to several caregivers in the network. The hotels include:
“The life of a caregiver is profoundly important, but sometimes routine and measured, and leaves little to no time for a respite,” said Peter Strebel, Chairman of Omni Hotels & Resorts. We are proud to be partnering with Operation Homefront, a fellow Texas-based company, to provide more than just a place to stay, but a place to relax and recharge, and no one deserves that more than our veterans and their caregiving community.”
Created and maintained by Operation Homefront, caregivers are provided with support by facilitating online groups that provide social connection to other caregivers in similar situations, fostering support groups by location to encourage resource sharing and friendships, and sponsoring annual retreats to provide education on relevant issues.
“Operation Homefront is grateful for the support of companies like Omni Hotels & Resorts who share in our steadfast commitment to build strong, stable, and secure military families,” said Brig. Gen. (ret.) Robert Thomas, COO of Operation Homefront “Omni Hotels & Resorts recognizes the sacrifice that our nation’s military families and veteran caregivers make, on a daily basis, and we sincerely thank them for their generous gift of several weekend stays to caregivers who would, normally, not be able to enjoy a weekend away, due to their unyielding caregiver duties and financial constraints.”
