The Children of Fallen Military and First Responders Leadership Team, which already provides STEAM programs across the nation, is now taking a bold step forward with the creation of the first-ever Retreat and STEAM Education Center. Situated on 82 acres in Moore County, NC, this initiative represents their ongoing commitment to empowering children of fallen heroes, foster kids, caregivers, and the wider community. By expanding their reach through this center, they continue to foster growth, education, and healing while honoring the legacies of our fallen heroes.
