New Program Supports Children of Fallen Heroes
DALLAS, Sept. 11, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Every day across the nation, military Veterans, Law Enforcement and first responders answer the call of duty to serve our nation. Unfortunately, many of these individuals make the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty or struggle with depression and PTSD and eventually choose to end their own lives. Many of these fallen heroes leave behind children and spouses.
W-A-T-C-H (We Are The Children of Heroes) is a new nationwide program of 22KILL launching to serve the children and families of America’s fallen first responders and military heroes who have died since 9/11.
W.A.T.C.H. will create a network of hope & empowerment and be dedicated to preventing further trauma for families by providing new, happy memories for their children. The program aims to show them that they are not alone in their grief by connecting them to others just like them, and who are dealing with the same life challenges in a safe and comfortable setting, where they can open up, share their feelings, and begin to heal.
- Providing support and resources to assist the children and families in rebuilding their lives.
- Providing activities and organized events centered around music and art therapy, and a variety of sports activities.
- Organized community service projects to promote positive efforts in their local communities.
- Annual camps, events and retreats that allow families to connect with one another and heal together and allow the kids to be kids again and have fun.
Families of fallen are encouraged to sign up with the W.A.T.C.H. program and can do so at these links:
When their end of watch begins, it’s our duty to watch over their families.
