– Hunter Cain believes in service –

SERVICE OF COUNTRY: Hunter is a decorated disabled combat veteran who spent nearly a decade in the US Army with deployments and service in Operations Iraqi Freedom, Enduring Freedom, and New Dawn.
SERVICE OF STATE: Hunter answered the call and served in the Nevada National Guard. He continued to serve as Director of Community Outreach for Congresswoman Dina Titus. For over half a decade with her office he organized over 100 community events, helped thousands of Southern Nevadans find social and mental health services and brought back more than $2 million worth of federal benefits to those in need.
SERVICE TO CLARK COUNTY: Hunter is a single foster parent in Clark County, who has devoted his life to help shelter and raise higher-level of care and at-risk youth, to which he has fostered 36 young men. In 2018, he adopted his first son, and since that time became a forever parent to 11 sons. He stepped up to become a CCSD educator during a time of shortages, leads several community outreach programs, all while commanding a fan club which believes in ‘Infinite Diversity in Infinite Combinations.’

Hunter's Sons of Cain

Hunter is a single dad who has fostered more than 30 youth over the past 8 years. 11 young men have been adopted or elected to have Hunter, and the House of Cain, be their forever home. Thanks to this family environment, 100% of the youth have graduated high school and are currently serving our community as military members, medics, college students, teaching aides, laborers and union men. In 2023, two sons helped Hunter gain the new title of grandfather (or as Hunter prefers Opa).


“My family. . . . is the American family. We are every race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, political ideology, disability, economic status, and other diverse backgrounds. When love is the bedrock principal, we can overcome all divisions.”

Hunter received his Bachelor in Political Science from UNLV and also holds associate degrees in Intelligence Operations, Communications, Creative Writing, International Language (German), Political Science, Futures Studies, Sustainability Studies, and Business Management.

Fandom – Hosting social events to connect and have fun.
Cosplay – Appearances at conventions and parades to support our community.
Service – Volunteering and fundraising for community partners.

“Important wisdom from an earth cultural anthropologist, Margaret Mead, once said, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizen can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”  – Captain Hunter Cain, USS Hyperion
