When & Where
Little Warrior Project
The Little Warrior Project provides military kids with programs & services that improve Morale, Welfare and Overall quality of life.
When we talk about how our Nations men and women in uniform sacrifice so much and serve this country so bravely, we’re not just talking about the parents, we are also talking about their children who unknowingly sacrifice, because we know that when parents are called to serve, the child serve right alongside them.
We are currently based in Florida and work in the local community to make a difference every day by providing the children of military and public service personnel with programs that focus on:
- Health & Wellness
- Community Service
- Bereavement Counseling
Our programs and services focus on the needs of the children and are not just about providing entertainment, they also serve as a support group for the participants. Through social interaction children learn that they are not alone, providing them with a peer network of support in which life-long friendships are developed and support provided long after the event.
All this being said, these children have still managed to learn from an early age that home is where their hearts are, that a good friend can be found in every corner of the world and in every color, and that education doesn’t only come from books. They live in history as it is being made, they learn that to survive means to adapt, that when a door closes one chapter of their life, another door opens up to a new and exciting adventure full of experiences.
We aspire to have a national presence and promote awareness of this unique opportunity to provide support for the children of our Nations Warriors.
