Operation Homefront builds strong, stable, and secure military families by providing critical financial assistance, transitional and permanent housing, and family support services.

ATLANTA — An Atlanta native has been chosen to manage Operation Homefront’s programs in the Southeastern United States.  Elizabeth Scott, who is based in Atlanta, is the national nonprofit’s new Area Manager for Georgia, Alabama, Florida, and Mississippi.

Scott, who will supervise a new Operation Homefront office in Atlanta, has a bachelor of science degree in political science, with a minor in history, from Georgia Southern University.

Highly experienced in the civic sector, with more than 10 years in nonprofit leadership, Scott also has an MPA in nonprofit management from Georgia State University.

Scott’s distinguished nonprofit career includes positions with the League of Women Voters of Georgia, StandUp for Kids-National, and Voices of Note.

“Operation Homefront is lucky to have Elizabeth on our team setting up a new office in Atlanta to support our military families in the Southeast,” Operation Homefront Senior Director Robin Miller said.  “She is an experienced nonprofit leader and a lifelong resident of Atlanta — allowing her to navigate the needs and opportunities locally for our military families.”
