KOAH AT A GLANCE
A Bit of Background
KOAH is a community organization assisting kids of our Active Duty Military, deployed National Guard and Reserve Force. We offer Military-connected Kids initiatives and programs designed to alleviate fear, sense of loss, and anticipatory grief some Kids Of America's Heroes attempt to navigate during the deployment cycle. We help military families. We stand strongly alongside veterans' organizations as a sister foundation for Kids. Our mission is to Advocate, Educate and Connect Military Kids to Their Community.
KOAH is a fiscally sponsored program of United Charitable,
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:
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.
Making A Difference
Kids Of America's Heroes is in the business of changing and shaping lives. The work we do at our Non-Profit Organization is aimed at providing a holistic approach to solving some of our society’s biggest challenges. We make sure our partners are empowered by creating opportunities for individuals and communities.
Helping The Community
KOAH strongly supports the inclusion of students whose parents serve in the National Guard and Reserves to be included in ESSA reporting on military-connected student. Military student identifiers could connect Kids and their parents to resources difficult to navigate. This could make a major difference in their lives. We Fight for the Families of all Kids Of America's Heroes and support Military Student Identifiers by advocating for the revision of the ESSA act which only applies to students with a parent who is a member of the Armed Forces on active duty.
FIERCE FAMILY WORKSHOPS
Reinforcing our Education Commitment
We've teamed up with The American Red Cross in an effort to promote open communication among non-deployed parent and their Kids Of America's Heroes. Providing access to the right resources, Kids and Parents become empowered by their own abilities and gain the confidence to fulfill their potential by keeping an open line of communication with one another.

Care Packages for Kids
KOAH proudly sends monthly letters and tokens of appreciation to military kids whose parent(s) are deployed to thank them for their sacrifice, because when a parent serves, so does their family.
TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE IT BETTER
Imagine all of the extra help and supports that could be offered to these brave children. Mental health supports, introductions to community groups or social networks, guidance toward medical resources, assistance with registering for school, and extra academic supports to help fill gaps are all well within the realm of possibility.
