Our mission is to serve the children of military personnel who have lost their lives on active duty, while defending the United States of America. ASC has three points of service for the children of our fallen:
- Birthday Celebrations
Celebrating our recipient’s birthdays every year up to age 18 by spending $150 per child per birthday according to the child’s specific gift interview form.
- Mentorship Programs
We offer a Journey Camp experience for our recipients between the ages of 8-16. This is a week-long summer camp hosted by ASC and our kids are encouraged to attend for at least 3 years. We also offer some very exciting hunting and fishing programs (8-16 years of age) currently in Tennessee, Texas, South Carolina and Louisiana. ASC kids will be featured on the World Fishing Network all of 2016 in the Force on Force fishing tournament hosted by Army Bass Anglers. ASC has a leadership development program (PS23) designed for ASC young adults between the ages of 17-25. PS23 is an intensive outdoor weekend focusing on mind, body and spirit.
- College Scholarships
ASC facilitates in college scholarships for our recipients through our partner organizations: Fallen Patriots Foundation and Folded Flag Foundation.
ASC VISION STATEMENT: To grow nationally, becoming a household name as the gold standard for our Gold Star families. Providing an opportunity for lifelong touch-points, so that ASC recipients will say it is an honor to be A Soldier’s Child.
We presently have just over 2500 children enrolled in all 50 states. We expect to exceed 3000 children by the end of 2016. We are so grateful for you and others all over our country committed to help us honor our national treasure; the children of our fallen military servicemen and servicewomen.
