Understanding Kids Of America's Heroes
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
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.
Advocating for all Military connected kids. Especially for those of National Guard and Reserve Force operating under Title 32, imbedded in every town across the country. Many National Guard and Reserve families don’t live on Military community and don’t have the same supports in place as the kids whose parent(s) Armed Forces under Title 10.
FIERCE FAMILY WORKSHOPS
We've teamed up with The American Red Cross in an effort to open communication among non-deployed parent and their Kids Of America's Heroes. These small setting events help Kids and Parents become empowered to gain the confidence to fulfill their need to keep an open line of communication with one another.
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.

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.
