Why we do it
The driving motivation behind every effort the Quietly Working Foundation undertakes is that we want each of these children to know that the citizens of the United States of America recognize their loss, and are committed to helping them achieve their highest potential in life. Who we serve
Our only pre-qualification for recipients of our services is the tragedy of losing a parent or guardian while in United States Military service.
Our programs and services are designed to directly benefit the children. We do serve the needs of the surviving parent or guardian through our Family Support Programs. We recognize the value of a strong and healthy home life as a foundational building block in a child's journey toward achieving their dreams.
How we serve

Each one of these children has a goal and a dream. The America's Dream Mentorship and Vocational Assistance program will open doors through mentor relationships and present opportunities to the child that match their goals. This program is designed to help every child whose parent has made the ultimate sacrifice, to achieve their own personal American Dream. To one it may be becoming a doctor, to another a business owner, to another an airline pilot. Each one will be unique and an honor to assist them in achieving. Appreciation Days
A series of events throughout the year ranging from an annual nationwide Back-To-School celebration to local sponsored days at an amusement park. These events are all designed to share our appreciation, provide for an existing need such as back to school clothes or recreational activities, and to present opportunities for families to come together for fun and community development.
