1% of our population serves in the military.

When a military member serves, their entire family serves, too. Nobody knows that better than you.

That’s where we come in.

At NMFA, we stand behind our nation’s military by supporting their loved ones who serve silently. We speak up for you and work to enhance your quality of life as a way to say thank you for your unique sacrifices.

Your Voice Matters. Your Story Changes Lives.

As advocates for military families since 1969, we know that stories are what help make change that matters. We listen to our nation’s military families when they have issues, and we take those stories to the people who can make a difference—whether that’s Senators and Representatives on Capitol Hill, the Department of Defense, or the President of the United States.

We won’t stop until families are taken care of on all fronts of their military journey.

Do you have a story to tell? We’d love to hear it and help.

Operation Purple Camp

Eastern 4-H Center is owned and operated by NC State University. The Center's staff is dedicated to providing every camper an opportunity to feel accepted, valued, and cared about as a member of the summer camp community. Creating friendships and a sense of safety are as important to us as the activities we teach. Our vision is to establish an enjoyable and exciting summer camp program that contributes to the development of each camper's character, along with the development of important life skills. Our summer camp experience enables campers to learn these skills while doing a variety of traditional summer camp activities, such as kayaking, canoeing, rock climbing, learning about nature, team challenge course, sports and games, arts and crafts, and archery. Eastern 4-H Center is also outfitted with modern recreational facilities and lodgings to make campers feel comfortable during their stay. We hope your camper will join us for a fun filled week.
