Florida

Operation: Military Kids (OMK) in Florida reaches out to youth with a deployed military family member through a variety of ways. OMK state and community partners are proud to provide support to Florida citizens and communities addressing the issues facing military families.

Through state and local partnerships involving UF Extension 4-H Youth Development Programs, National Guard, Army Reserves, Tyndall and MacDill Air Force Bases, Veterans Affairs, American Legion, Boys and Girls Clubs, local school districts, and numerous Community Civic Groups, we are able to extend a helping hand as well as an educational arm in helping Floridians learn about the issues facing a military child faced with an absentee parent through deployment.
