April is the Month of the Military Child, a time to honor the sacrifices made by military families worldwide, especially children who give up so much as their parents serve. Military-connected kids are forced to contend with frequent moves, new schools, deployments and separations and parents struggling with combat injuries or trauma. That is why military children are so often used to diversity, can handle change well and develop an early ability to adapt to many situations.
Here are a few of the major service providers for military children:
Fort Bragg Army Community Service: classes, counseling for parents and children
Military Child Education Coalition: in-school support
Fort Bragg Child and Adolescent Behavioral Health: mental health counseling
Fort Bragg YMCA: Mentoring
Military One Source: Month of the Military Child resources for kids and parents/caregivers
Cohen Clinic: Behavioral Health Therapy
