Our Mission

Operation G.I. Jane, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, is the first and only charity solely dedicated to supporting deployed, single mothers in the U.S. military. It was formed in 2010 by Defense contractor Jula Jane upon returning home from a business trip to Afghanistan. Jula visited several bases including Bagram Airfield, Camp Phoenix and NATO, and was moved to action.

We have four main programs designed to keep the bond between deployed mothers and their children strong— Project Open Comm, Personal Shopper, Your Next Mission, and Awards & Grants. These Programs are made possible through alliances with companies and individuals who have a product or service that they generously donate or discount, and through fundraising efforts.
