The Experiences That We Have As Children
Shape Our Future

The Comfort Crew Programs combine customized in-person live experiences, animated DVD's, guided journals, and an online web-portal to help kids through the unique situations they experience as a military kid in an extremely efficient and effective manner.

Each Comfort Crew piece uses a unique blend of humor and personal stories to open kids up to talking about the "tough stuff." These unique edutainment experiences allow us to talk about serious subjects in a way that is accessible to children.

Our experiences of impacting over 100,000 children in the past 2 years alone, and receiving hundreds of letters from kids, counselors, and parents (Click Here To See Them For Yourself) show that what we're doing is working and we're excited that with the help of people like you, together we can make these resources available to every military kid in need.

  Even though the troops are coming home, they need our support now more than ever. On average, 161,000 children are affected by deployment and reintegration annually. Research shows that post-deployment families often experience higher levels of stress, instability, and lower levels of family functioning including divorce.  
  According to the Department of Defense, 488 US service members are killed in action every year. In addition, a total of 23 veterans and service members commit suicide each day. About 35.9% of service members were married with an average of 2 children.  
  Since 9/11, 50,581 service members have returned home from war with visible injuries and an estimated 320,000 have returned with Traumatic Brain Injuries. Medical professionals claim that over 20% of service members are diagnosed with exhibiting symptoms of PTSD.  
  Currently, there are 1.2 million school age children with a parent serving in the US armed forces and approximately 1 million of these children have experienced one or more deployments. On top of everyday youth challenges, military children have to navigate through additional challenges like moving every 2-3 years and the lingering stress of their parent's dangerous job.
