Mission Statement

Children of Fallen Heroes provides retreats, education, and special programs to children and families of fallen military and first responders designed to create an escape from grief, helping them to survive and thrive in spite of their loss.

 

Vision Statement

Children of Fallen Heroes seeks to increase public awareness and appreciation of the sacrifice of fallen military and first responder heroes as well as the sacrifice and needs of their loved ones, through an increasing range of healing educational and recreational activities.

Statement of Need

Child survivors of fallen military and first responders experience complicated grief, involving not merely the loss of a parent, but also the loss of a hero, and the loss of their familiar sense of belonging within a community. Participation in skill-building activities with others who have experienced similar losses is beneficial to the healing process. Research shows that children of fallen heroes who participate in peer support activities experience an increased sense of hope, positive role-modeling, and greater trust, understanding, and empathy.

Children of Fallen Heroes seeks to increase public awareness and appreciation of the sacrifice of fallen military and first responder heroes as well as the sacrifice and needs of their loved ones, through an increasing range of healing educational and recreational activities.

Program Description

Children of Fallen Heroes is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, founded in 2015 by Kenneth Wasley. We provide various types of retreats, education opportunities, community outreach, and special activities for children and families of fallen military and first responders. All activities are designed to provide a respite from grief as well as a new learning experience in an atmosphere in which their hero parents are remembered and honored for their service. These activities have included but are not limited to: STEM Flight for Heroes Day Camp, Equine Retreat for Heroes, Golf Day Camp, Fishing Day Camp for Heroes, Canine Rescue Class, and Wildlife Rescue Class, Photography Class, Wedding, and Special Occasions and Skydiving Angels Program.

Golf & Family Club

Built on property that was once a famed horse farm, the golf course at Longleaf Golf & Family Club has raced to the top of the “Must Play” lists in the Sandhills region. Our Dan Maples-designed layout is a mix of risk-reward holes that have proven to be worthy of some of North Carolina’s biggest events. A 2015 renovation by Bill Bergin has led to Longleaf’s annual inclusion in many “Best Conditioned” and “Top Courses You Can Play” lists.

National Academy

The U.S. Kids Golf Academy is the benchmark for junior golf development worldwide and a leader in bringing new players into the game. Utilizing a holistic approach that provides properly fit equipment for every player to use, games-based learning that emphasizes fun and friendships, and a Player Pathway development program that provides clear goals while rewarding achievement, our Academy is the epicenter of training coaches, developing young players, and creating lifelong family experiences.
