The National Law Enforcement & Firefighters Children’s Foundation (NLEAFCF)
The National Law Enforcement and Firefighters Children's Foundation (NLEAFCF) is a non profit organization dedicated to help children of law enforcement and firefighting personnel by providing financial support to both children who have lost a parent in the line of duty or had a parent become permanently disabled in the line of duty, as well as families enduring significant financial hardships due to tragic circumstances. The NLEAFCF also supports, promotes, and facilitates educational activities and programs created and operated by law enforcement and firefighting organizations whose purpose is to benefit children or the community at large.

In the aftermath of 9/11, NLEAFCF Founder Al Kahn recognized that "many families across America have little support in surviving the immense impact of a line of duty loss. Especially over the subsequent years as the children of these fallen heroes grow up and any limited emergency funds have long since disappeared. There was a clear need for an organization that could be there to help all these families over the long haul." NLEAFCF recognizes that the loss of a parent impacts a child for a lifetime. They are committed to providing long-term support to ensure the needs of these children are met during not only at the initial time of crisis, but into the future.

When the ultimate sacrifice has been made by a first responder, the Foundation believes it is our responsibility as a society to ensure that their children achieve their full potential as active citizens and thriving members of the community. Through grants, college scholarships and family-friendly events, the NLEAFCF serves the needs of these children across the country regardless of how long ago or how recent their loss. The Foundation's long-term commitment is a promise to the people who defend and protect us, a major investment in our nation's future and in tomorrow's heroes. Visit NLEAFCF Facebook Page HERE
