As an elementary school counselor that has worked with military children for many years and was a military brat, the Comfort Crew has made a major impact on my school and students. Trevor Romain did a presentation a couple of years ago and met with several of my students from our Military Brats Club personally. His compassion for military kids is amazing. The Comfort Crew embodies this compassion in their support for military families. The materials provided for the kids and parents is insightful and understanding in what families go through during deployments and reintegration. I have also volunteered with the Comfort Crew and have seen first hand how the organization works to assist our military kids no matter the branch of service, national guard or reserve unit their parent may be a part of.

I have spent several years working with non profits and I have to say that it is a joy to work with CCfMK. Everyone in the office is always excited to find new ways to spread the word about the organization and works tirelessly to do so. The work they do is essential to the well-being of often overlooked military children.

My family has worked with the Trevor Romain Foundation for several years, volunteering and as a military family in need to there services. They do an amazing job of helping Military child. They help military children all over the world learn how to cope with the stresses that everyday Military life can place on them at a young age and last there whole life as a Military child. My children know first hand of the stress military life can places on Military children. The Comfort Crew has given my military children the tools they have needed to servive deployments, military moves, cope with bulling as well as gain the confidence they needed to understand why they were feeling the way there were and how to express it in positive way.
