My son lost his father in Iraq October 6 2003 when he was four years old. he and i were not married i myself was in the military and moved around alot. The fund treated us like family during the first years of the war single unwed mothers where not treated very kindly by the military THIS organization was the ONLY one who treated my son like a son of a fallen hero. Darian "DJ" was a shy kid really didn't talk much Rebecca Campbell the CEO of the organization would call him and talk to him often the fund even arranged for him to go to a grief camp and meet and bond with children like him he opened up about his dad made friends and the MOST special thing was arranging for him too visit his father's grave in New Jersey and see his grandfather hadn't seen him IN OVER six years and hasn't seen him since the fund blessed us his grandfather who lives in Peru only comes to the United states twice a year for veterans doctors appointments. as a 90% disabled veteran there was NO way i could have made that happen now at 15 he is an honor student outgoing young man with dreams of going to the university of Georgia to become a lawyer.i pray the WONDERFUL Americans of THIS great land will continue to help so these babies can continue to make their fallen heros proud. GOD knows where we would be without this fund our home was robbed they TOOK everything EVEN our food i didn't know what to DO we were sleeping with friends for fear of the robbers coming back. This fund gave us food helped us find shelter suffering from PTSD, lung problems, and anemic I myself was fading this fund saved our lives. GOD bless the ones who give and those who want to give but can't FREEDOM ISN'T FREE IT COMES WITH A PRICE 2LT RICHARD TORRES PAID THAT PRICE! !!
The girls at CFSRF work very hard helping our military families we love giving to a real charity whose hearts and dedication are in the right place!
We are so grateful for your help! If it weren't for your organization our son would not have been able to get the proper orthodontal work he so desperately needed. We called everywhere and no one would help and many charities would not even return our calls. Your organization not only paid the $4000.00, but spent time making sure I myself was taking care of my own well-being. Having a husband who is 100% disabled and a son with so many of his own needs had taken a toll on me, but you gave me suggestions on methods or relaxation and even offered to send me a care package with bath salts, essential oils, etc. just so I could relax. The CFSRF really takes care of their families with love and kindness and doesn't shut you out. Thank you we are so very grateful and blessed to be part of your family!

My Dad died in 2006 when his Mgator hit an Ied. As difficult and sad as his loss was, It would not be the last tragic thing to happen to my family. A few years after my Father died, my Mom would become sick. Then I was diagnosed with a tumor near my brainstem. My Mom and I have continued to fight for our lives for what feels like an eternity. Mrs. Campbell has never stopped helping us, ever. She has done so much for my family. This organization has become part of my family. Words fail to express my gratitude and the love I have for Becky. She is one in a million. We love you Mrs. Campbell
Ms. Becky and the CFSRF has been an amazing entity in my and my daughter's life in the past 10 years. The foundation helped my daughter and I after Katrina washed away my entire house a year after I lost my husband in the war on terrorism. They have also been a tremendous blessing for my child during Christmas. She truly tries to help everyone she can. God bless her and this foundation.
The help my family received from this charity restored hope for our family. Words can never express the sincere gratitude we have. Becky Campbell and this organization have done an amazing job helping soooo many veterans and the families of the fallen.
CFSRF helped me finance and pursue my goal of attending a prestigious academic institution. I am very grateful!
The most amazing staff and organization I have encountered
After my husband died in Afghanistan I became disabled after multiple car accidents and was left to raise my daughter on my own, I lost my job and couldn't pay the bills. My daughter and I had to go to the local food pantry for them to give us food weekly, I was behind on all the bills... I never received the life insurance given to most widows after death of the husbands. My daughter and I were barley making it by until I found this blessing... Becky and Monica have been exactly that nothing but a BLESSING..They paid all my bills I was behind on so I can buy food and other necessities we needed. They even helped us with our Thanksgiving dinner!! They didn't stop there and gave my daughter the best Christmas ever. Without them helping us out I'm sure we would've been in a much different position. I couldn't thank you enough. God bless you Becky and Monica. I'm sure my husband was smiling down from heaven for helping his girls out.
The Children Of Fallen Soldiers Relief Fund has been absolutely amazing! I lost my father at a very young age during OEF. Since that time, I have had to prioritize working in order to help support my family. While conducting a web search, I stumbled across the website for CFSRF, which seemed almost too good to be true. I reached out via email and received such a heart-warming response. Each ensuing encounter with the CFSRF, and Mrs. Campbell in particular, has been unbelievably pleasant. With the assistance and support of CFSRF, I have been very fortunate to be able to continue my academic pursuit of a biomedical degree as well as continued personal growth here at NCCU. For that opportunity, I want to personally thank the CFSRF for their kindness and willingness to help me achieve my academic goals. Glancing at some of the other postings, I see that the good deeds performed by the CFSRF ranges far and wide. Please continue the outstanding work. Thank you immensely!!!
I am so thankful for Children Of Fallen Soldiers Relief Fund. Without them my mortgage wouldn't have been able to be paid and our children wouldn't have had a Christmas. Last year my husband had a mental break down and ended up in a psych ward right after Thanksgiving. They were there for me and my kids while he was away when we had no one else.
They are the most generous organization I've dealt with. When my best friend from the Marines died this year they paid for my plane ticket so I could attend the funeral and pay my respects to his family. They are an enormous part of our Fallujah reunions and I can't thank them enough.
This organization really goes out of their way to help. They have always been there for the Fallujah vets, and their families. We owe them a great Debt of gratitude. Thank you.
An absolutely wonderful organization here. Dedicated to the families of our nation's fallen hero's. The staff I have had the opportunity of meeting have been an absolute pleasure to be around. God bless this organization of selfless individuals.
There's no better organization out there that helps military families especially the children's. CFSRF will always have a special place in my heart
I was having a difficult time after returning home from deployment and began to isolate once depression sat in. Feeling alone and misunderstood by those who hadn't been in the service; family and friends I began to drink and slowly spiraled into a deeper depression and wanted to give up. A brother I had served with encouraged me to go to the VA and I finally did only to discover that I was one in thousands waiting in line for help. After initiating contact with them and filing the numerous forms they required I still am waiting for help. My brother reached out to me again and then asked if I would be willing to speak with Becky at Children of Fallen Soldiers Relief Fund, I finally agreed. She called and after breaking down the barriers I had put up I finally realized that not only did have choices, but I had someone who I had never met reach out, listen and offer me solid answers and good choices so that I could move forward with my life. I began school again and am just recently beginning to spend time with close family and friends. She said "one day at a time", and that's what I am doing. Everyday I get closer to realizing just one dream and doing my best to be positive is a day closer to survival. Thank you there really are no words to express my gratitude for this organization and Becky there have been so many doors that were closed not just on me, but many of my other brothers. I hope to be able to give a little back in the future to this compassionate and heartfelt organization.
This organization truly cares for the families of the fallen. They GO above and beyond. My son who is the son of a fallen hero was shot on good Friday of this year. The CEO and founder came from her home to be with us I myself a 90%disabled veteran HOW I would have gotten through this I DON'T know PLEASE DONATE this is a small orginazation WITH a huge heart!!!
A Charity Providing help to children left behind. CFSRF has provided college scholarships and more to those in need of financial assistance, not to mention the guidance and support to the spouses and veterans Becky provides. This is a wonderful charity and an awesome person behind it.

Thank you Becky and CFSRF for all you do for Gold Star Families. We appreciate all of your hard work, love and support. Our family has known Becky and CFSRF since around 2005. They provided our family with financial support shortly after loosing my husband when things were very uncertain along with help for college. It's simple...Becky and CFSRF cares about military families and tries to help them any way that she can.
Review from Guidestar
I have seen first hand the work that this organization Children of the Fallen Soldiers Relief Fund has done. They have helped so many veterans and their families when they had no where else to turn. The VA itself takes so long to get any help from. CFSRF has not only financially helps these families but they support them at all hours of the day and night emotionally. The stories that they hear and the tears that they cry along with these families is heart wrenching. CFSRF is an organization that I am very proud to support and be a part of. They are truly a blessing to all troops and their families.
