Baby carriers

The Carrying On Project
http://www.carryingonproject.org/
For generations, the practice of babywearing has made caring for children easier while helping them develop or maintain life-long bonds with caregivers. The goal of the Carrying On Project is to help get carriers to the families of our military so that they may better obtain secure attachments with their children, something that deployment and injuries will often interrupt. We seek to assist both the service members and the families left behind in “Carrying On” while both home and away, to make something that is difficult for the whole family a little bit easier.


Family sponsorship

The General's Kids
www.thegeneralskids.org
If you are the parent or guardian of a child living at a military hospital you may sign up for the sponsorship program of The General's Kids. We’ll connect you with an individual, family, or school class that wants to make your child feel appreciated for their service to our country. Please fill out the registration form and we will be contacting you within the next 3 business days. When a sponsor signs up the priority will go on a first come first serve basis. We will try to place families with more than one child with sponsors who want to reach out to the whole family that way all the children receive the same amount and frequency of cards. When available we’ll also pair school classes with children of the same age. That way it makes a good connection for both parties.

The General's Kids also offers a financial program. "If your family moved to a new area and your child would like to participate in local activities like sports, music and dance lessons, etc…we would want to help cover the costs." Learn more by visiting our FINANCIAL resources for wounded warrior families - LINK.


Grants for sports, fine arts, academic tutoring

Our Military Kids
http://ourmilitarykids.org/how-we-help/
Our Military Kids supports the children of wounded service members/veterans by awarding grants that pay for participation in sports, fine arts, and academic tutoring programs. Activities help children cope with stress and anxiety in a positive way while parents recover from severe service-related injuries.


Housecleaning

Cleaning for Heroes
www.cleaningforheroes.org
Cleaning for Heroes is the ONLY non-profit dedicated to providing free house cleaning services to disabled or elderly veterans but we don't stop there! We also provide free house cleaning services to disabled members of local police and fire departments. We are grateful for the service that these men and women provide to all of us to help make this country what it is today and Cleaning for Heroes was founded to provide help in a time of need for these individuals. Members of the United States Military, local police department or fire department who have injuries sustained in the line of duty that make the task of house cleaning difficult are eligible for our services. Elderly veterans who live alone or with an aging spouse are also eligible.
