A Bit of Background
Kids Of America's Heroes (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,
Kids Of America's Heroes Award
The Kids Of America's Heroes is a $1,000 Financial Award given to students who have chosen military service after high school. The graduating senior must be Enlisted or Enrolled in a Military Academy for any branch of Military Service at the time of graduation.
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. Click the register here button to register a Military Kids for a Hug!
Advocating for all Military connected kids. Especially for those of the National Guard and Reserve Force operating under Title 32, embedded in every town across the country. Many National Guard and Reserve families don’t live in the Military community
The Key to Providing Help
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
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.

I first learned of Kids of America's Heros when my husband deployed back in 2019. At that time, we had a 4-year-old, 2.5-year-old, and a 1month old. When we were learning of my husband's deployment, like many military parents, my biggest worry was our children. At the yellow ribbon ceremony, I visited each vendor, and eventually, I came to the KOAH table. First the first time during our deployment planning I found a sense of relief. I was grateful to know there was a network of support for military children. I immediately signed my girls up for the programs and as time went on, I watched as they enjoyed the pictures they received from other military children.
