How We’ve Grown

Our Military Kids has experienced major growth from its initial stage as a pilot program with a Virginia National Guard unit in 2005. In 2006, Our Military Kids expanded into a national program serving the National Guard and Reserves. In 2008, Our Military Kids expanded the program to include three- and four-year-old children, offered second grant awards to children with parents serving lengthy deployments, and expanded grant availability to children of Wounded Warriors in all branches of service.

Survey Results

In October 2011, Our Military Kids administered a survey to grant recipient families of the National Guard, resulting in 780 responses. The purpose of this survey was to assess the psychological impact of a military parent’s deployment on the children of National Guard families, and the effectiveness of the Our Military Kids grant program in alleviating deployment-related stress and anxiety.
