Our objective is to work with children of honorably discharged veterans, active military, or any military designation recognized as a disabled veteran, who do not have the necessities to succeed in life or school. This program is designed to meet financial burdens of the neediest first, but will strive to serve any children who meet our criteria.


The 2018 federal poverty level income numbers below are used to calculate eligibility for Medicaid and the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP). These same government established numbers are the first measuring stick we will use, but the human condition and one's station in life are equally iimportant. If there is any way we can help you, we will. If we need to reach out to our sponsors and donors, we will.

Families have to reach out for assistance. Cincinnati has other charitable organizations that specialize in advocating for only military children, but they get overburdened quickly.


Our Director of Female Veteran Care, Kirstin Thomas, has taken it upon herself to establish, fund, and administer this program; however all final fiscal decisions will be made by the CEO, Executive Director, and Advisory Board.


We have many corporate and military contacts in the Cincinnati area. We participate in quality functions and are prepared to run programs for the children of our military tailored to their specific needs.

Thank You Senator

Senator Joe Uecker took me to lunch when I was fourteen to discuss high level military service and a career in government service. He is a regular speaker at My GI Foundation banquets and is always ready to lend a hand to support my philanthropy and service to veterans. He has represented the 14th District since 2013 as a Republican member of the Ohio Senate.
