Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The children of fallen Police Officers sadly have to struggle with living the rest of their lives without the guidance and love from their fallen parent, admired idol and hero. Their surviving parent and now sole caretaker a lot of times do not have the financial capabilities to continue living life the same way as they did when their partner was alive so they struggle to care for themselves and their children.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

A lot of fallen Police Officers’ families can not afford extracurricular activities and unfortunately many of the children of fallen Police Officers fall victim to depression and do not even want to participate in the activities. Studies have shown that children who participate in organized sports and fun uplifting activities become stronger and more successful adults from the camaraderie, guidance, leadership, social interactions and confidence building that they receive from participating in such activities. Our objective is to help the children of fallen Police Officers adapt and flourish as much as possible so they can grow to be successful without the help from their departed parent.

We work to mentor and sponsor the children of fallen Police Officers by covering the cost of them participating in organized sports, dance, music, camps, vacations, attending sporting events and other activities in order to encourage them to flourish and thrive even though they are grieving.

We have recruited numerous volunteers to assist our organization as mentors to the children of fallen Police Officers. The mentors' duties are to connect with the children and families of the fallen Police Officers in order to determine what their needs are and try to assist them with their needs and become a mentor to the children. The mentors then help to sponsor the children by covering the cost of them participating in organized sports, dance, music, camps, vacations, attending sporting events and other activities by using funds that were raised by our organization.

We have made positive connections with our volunteers, mentors, supporters and the children and families of fallen Police Officers. We have raised money and offered financial aid to the children and families of fallen Police Officers. We have worked closely with representatives from professional sports organizations to conduct fundraising campaigns to support our mission and obtained tickets for sporting events to give to the children of fallen Police Officers and their family members so that they can have a day/night of fun with each other and go watch a professional sporting event together. We plan on reaching out to more children and families of fallen Police Officers so that we can assist them and make a positive impact in their lives too.
