Help pack Camp Care Kits for family camps.
Ohio Military Kids's mission is to support the youth of military families throughout the deployment cycle. National Guard and Reserve service members live throughout Ohio - they're in our backyard! Some counties have a higher concentration of families, while others have only one. Because these families are spread throughout the state, they do not have the support systems that are typically available to active duty military families who live on or near military installations. OMK's Goals are:
Create community support networks for military youth "in our own backyard" when they experience a loved one's deployment.
- Educate the public on the impact of deployment on a service members' children, families, and communities through awareness building and educational trainings with schools and community organizations.
- Deliver recreational, social, and educational programs for military youth in civilian communities geographically dispersed throughout the state.
