Building Resilience in Military Families

Supported in partnership with the NFL 

The Armed Services YMCA (ASYMCA) provides free and low-cost programs and services for military families, promoting youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility. With this NFL-BWF Healthy Lifestyles and Creating Community grant, ASYMCA will

  • train teachers and staff to support military children in childcare centers who may have complex needs related to stress, fear, and/or loneliness.
  • start a Mobile Market stocked with fresh and frozen food in addition to pantry staples, and
  • maintain childcare programs that provide military spouses the opportunity to pursue certifications, higher education, or employment to ease the burden on their military family.
