Families of the Shield, Inc., is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that was the brainchild of a retired Melbourne Police Officer, in efforts to garner support and raise public awareness for police officers killed or injured in the line of duty or meeting the needs of their family members, as well as assisting other First Responders and our community members in today’s most troubling and difficult times. It was in January 2010, the long-lived vision became a reality and Families of the Shield, Inc., was born. Whether its financial or other monetary valued items or emotional support, we are here to help. If you would like to financially show your support for this most outstanding and noble cause, please select our "DONATE" online link above. Thank you for your most generous and appreciated contribution.
