Alleviating the stress a child feels from sudden misfortune
Our Emergency Hardship grant is a lifeline that provides families with immediate assistance when it matters most.
When unforeseen financial burdens arise, we step in with one-time emergency grants to help ease the burden. Whether it’s a childcare emergency, the sudden illness of a child or housing insecurity caused by devastating events like fires or pandemics, our Emergency Hardship grant program delivers crucial relief.
The COVID-19 pandemic has been a stark reminder of the importance of being prepared for large-scale emergencies. By supporting those in need today, we’re building resilience for the future. Our mission is to ensure that our heroes and their families have the unwavering support they require during challenging times.
We are dedicated to making a profound impact through this program. By providing financial assistance, we not only alleviate immediate burdens but also offer a sense of security and stability to first responder families. When they have the support they need, they can focus on what matters most: caring for their children’s well-being.
We are here to lend a helping hand and shoulder the weight during tough times. Together, we can provide the lifeline that ensures our first responder families never face their challenges alone.
In 2022, we provided emergency hardship grants to 74 families across the country, ensuring they could meet their financial obligations—and ensuring that 239 children of first responders didn’t have to feel the stress of unexpected misfortune.
