First Responders Children’s Foundation

First Responder Assistance Programs

First Responders Children’s Foundation provides financial support to both children who have lost a parent in the line of duty as well as families enduring significant financial hardships due to tragic circumstances.  First Responders Children’s Foundation also supports, promotes, and facilitates educational activities and programs created and operated by law enforcement and firefighting organizations whose purpose is to benefit children or the community at large.

As a first responder, you have been working around the clock to assess, alleviate, and help reduce the spread of
COVID-19 throughout the United States. You are on the front lines answering calls – as you always do – at great risk
of being exposed to this deadly virus. Because of your heroism, First Responders Children’s Foundation, through the support of generous donors, is taking action by providing financial assistance to those affected.

Over the past 20 years, First Responders Children’s Foundation has provided financial support to children who have lost a first responder parent in the line of duty as well as first responder families enduring financial hardship due to tragic circumstances. The Foundation also awards grants to first responder families in financial distress and supports programs operated by first responder organizations whose purpose is to benefit children or the communities in which they live.

First responders are on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic in every community across America, so First
Responders Children’s Foundation will provide support to first responder families who are enduring financial hardship due to the coronavirus outbreak.
