OUR MILITARY KIDS INC
October 21, 2011

Every time I try to go through the army to use a program benefit to help families, I feel like I deal with nothing but red tape and problems processing my requests. I was incredibly surprised at how easy this charity, devoted to helping military families, was to use. I provided the information they asked for and my daughter got to spend the summer going to camp. She was thrilled. It provided me with much needed breaks as well since I am caring for 3 children on my own during my husband's year long deployment.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

My daughter was much happier over the summer since she had something fun to look forward too and I got a break from parenting 3 children during my husband's deployment.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

allow for 2 activities during year long deployments (again). Give a 2nd chance as well. I applied for my other child to receive a grant but called to cancel it after my child decided that she wasn't interested in that activity. I called before the application was received so no money was sent out, I did not ask for the opportunity to try for a different activity but I was quickly told she would not quality for anything else.
