Program Information:

The Auxiliary's Children and Youth program provides care and strives to improve conditions for all children. The program works to preserve the integrity of the family unit and takes a realistic approach to the needs of children by considering the physical and spiritual, as well as the emotional and educational aspects, of each situation.  the Children and Youth program cooperates with many other public and private community agencies and organizations and supports essential legislation for children at the national, state, and local levels.  In some cases, the program offers direct financial assistance and services to individual children or to the families of veterans.  Auxiliary members also contribute to The American Legion Child Welfare Foundation, which was established in 1954 to fund special programs and projects which emphasize preventative solutions to difficult children's issues.  Educating members and the general public about these issues is a primary goal of the Auxiliary's Children and Youth programs.

Purpose Statement:

To work collaboratively with The American legion to direct and sponsor programs and services that provide care and protection for our nation's children, especially those of our military and veterans.
