UNDERSTANDING KIDS OF AMERICA'S HEROES

The Key to Providing Help

It's hard to put yourself in another person’s shoes. When only a very small percentage of individuals have particular experiences, it’s even more difficult.

Military connected kids are part of a small population in the US with unique experiences and fears. Their lives are based around their parent’s military service - protecting and defending our great nation.

Understanding Kids Of America's Heroes Fears & Experiences is Key to Providing Help

Military kids experience:

  • Frequent moves

  • Additional school transitions

  • Changing friendships and social dynamics

  • Prolonged absences of one or both parents

  • Family changes as a result of military-related illness or injury

Before we can work to support military kids at home and in school, it’s important that we understand how their life experiences and fears impact this brave community.

ADVOCACY

Helping The Community

CT Kids Of America's Heroes Might Get Student Tracker, Thanks to CT HB 6775

Keeping track of military connected students and connecting them to resources is often difficult. Kids slip through the cracks and miss out on opportunities that might have made a major difference in their lives.

We fully and firmly support Connecticut H.B. No. 6775.

FIERCE FAMILY WORKSHOPS

Care Packages for Kids
