Angels of America’s Fallen empowers children of our fallen military, police, fire, and EMS heroes by engaging them in positive activities throughout their entire childhood. We support them not just one time, but with a commitment to see them positively involved in healthy activities such as sports, music, and arts all year, every year, and all the way through 18 years old without having to reapply.
Children who have experienced a traumatic loss of a military or first responder parent face higher risks of anxiety, depression, substance abuse, dropping out of school, and suicide. They deserve our assistance throughout their entire childhood. Engagement in sports and arts has been shown to help them develop and succeed. Your caring gift can help them follow healthy passions and become successful adults.
We need ongoing partnerships with awesome people and businesses so we can sustain the long term support crucial for lasting impact, as well as sponsors for events and fundraising volunteers.
Over 300 children in Colorado, most in El Paso County, have lost a military or first-responder parent. Suicide was the cause of death for almost 50% of them.
“When we enrolled with Angels of America’s Fallen over 5 years ago, not only did they begin providing healthy outlets for my 6 year old son, Ryan, but they also became our ‘family’!” — Caroline Rudzinski
