Help for children and youth of a CAF member who died while serving

As a parent of a child who has lost a loved one, it can be overwhelming to know where to find appropriate information to support them. Here you will find resources for children including publications, scholarship information and more. 

If you have a teen in your family that is looking to connect with other youth from military families, the Family Information Line (FIL) is hosting a moderated forum where they can connect and support one another as only peers can. The FIL will also schedule live chats just for teens. 

It is recommended that parents read and discuss the Youth Chat Guidelines and the Youth Forum Guidelines with their teen prior to use.
