Our ultimate goal is to address the needs of military connected children offering programs/ services and support, in order to improve their lives.
MCCG gathers children for a Day event. The children learn about the arts, science and real life lessons. Providing a hands on experiences allowing the children ways to de-stress, have fun gaining knowledge, and receive support. MCCG Child’s Day Event enables children to unite together experiencing the same challenges at home. These children’s parents experience Post Traumatic Syndrome, Traumatic Brain Injury , wounded and loss of parent killed in action.
MCCG Kids learn skills to cope with the challenges they have on the Home front, by receiving ways to expand their minds, visualizing future possibilities and helping them obtain goals they would like to achieve.
MCCG Kids begin to gain a sense of self worth, pride, and improves their self stem. The children gain support from one another. Removing their sense of isolation.
