Angels of America's Fallen information provided by: Pikes Peak Area Council of Governments

Angels of America's Fallen's Mission is: To help children of our fallen military and first responders develop into strong and successful adults by providing them positive mentoring and developmental activities when they are at their most crucial developmental phase of life. The families of our fallen continue to suffer well after our heroes have paid the ultimate price for our freedom and security. Their children have lost one of their biggest mentors during the most crucial developmental time in their life. This group of children are at elevated levels of risk for drug use, failure to complete high school, arrest, depression and suicide. We don't want to lose a single child because their parent gave all for us. Over 16,000 children have lost a parent since Sept 11, 2001, and the average age of each child at the time of loss is just 7 years old. We help when the need is greatest - The time NOW between the loss of their parent and adulthood. Missing one parent and with the other commonly going back to work or school, the children are often left without guidance after school and during the Summer. We help the children become actively engaged during that time. Angels of America's Fallen does not directly conduct these activities but grants the funds, and or, supplies for activities the children choose that will provide mentoring and help them stay on track as they develop into adults. Activities supported are under the watchful eye of a coach, teacher, or instructor who can provide mentoring and guidance while the children enjoy growing in an area of interest specific to them. Because each child is different, a broad range of activities are supported. Included are team activities such as baseball, soccer, and football, as well as individual activities such as martial arts, piano, or guitar. Our effort is designed to proactively present a world of opportunities for physical, mental, and artistic development to promote a healthy body, mind, and spirit.
