Our Military Kids

Our Military Kids (OMK) is a nonprofit organization with a mission to recognize the service and sacrifice of military children by offering extracurricular activity grants when a parent is deployed with the National Guard, is deployed with the Reserve, or is a Veteran or member in any branch of service recovering from severe post 9/11 combat injuries. Participation in the activities minimizes emotional, behavioral, health, and academic difficulties when children or teens are separated from a parent physically or emotionally while also reinforcing the positive aspects of deployment or recovery such as building resilience, self-sufficiency, and strong family ties.

National Park Trust works with OMK to grant access to water and fishing for military family grant recipients who live near national parks. Our goal is to provide an opportunity for kids and their military parents to bond, instill a love of fishing and introduce military families to the vast expanse of parks in the National Park system.
