The child sacrifices and suffers the loneliness of having a parent away in service for months at a time. Many of these families find themselves in a financial hardship and simply cannot afford to pay for the sports, cheerleading, or other nurturing activities. Children of Wounded Warriors is very aware of the distance between the families and the difficulty it is for these families to find financial support in their local communities. We make our grants available to all of the American families no matter where they reside so their children can enjoy activities that enrich their spiritual and emotional being.
Children of Law Enforcement
The Law Enforcement community suffers a death at a rate of 7 officers a month. These families go through the toughest situations when this occurs. The children of these warriors are often forgotten. This tragedy not only hits the family emotionally but financially and the first thing normally that is cut is the extra-curricular activities for the children. Well this is where the Children of Wounded Warriors comes in and awards grants to those children that are affected by such a tragedy and awards grants so they can continue their extra-curricular activities such as sports, the arts or any other activity that will enrich their spiritual and emotional being.
Children of Fire Rescue
Fire Rescue is yet another dangerous profession to be in. The number of firefighters killed in the line of duty or injury from smoke inhalation is on average of 12 firefighters per month. When a firefighter losses their life in the course of their job once again the children not only suffer mental anguish but emotional distress as well. The families have a serious need for financial support in many ways and the parent will cut the less priority of things, usually extra-curricular activities. The Children of Wounded Warriors steps in and helps these families by granting awards to these children so they do not need to stop growing their minds and spirits and continue their extra-curricular activities.
