The For Paul Foundation supports First Responders, EMS, Ambulance Personnel, Medical Flight Services and their families. When a first responder or their family members need support or assistance The For Paul Foundation steps up to help as needed. Through donations, services, or any other areas our first responder families could benefit from.
Since our foundation was founded from the tragic line of duty death of Paul Besaw we have a special connection and focus on families that have suffered the same. In the event of a line of duty death the For Paul Foundation will reach out to the department or directly to the family and try to fill a need they may have... ( helping with groceries, continue children activities, mental health, support, etc.). You may also contact us at anytime to request help for yourself or a family that has lost a loved one in the line of duty.
We were honored in July of 2021 to provide comfort bags for families at The National EMS Memorial and meet with families to provide guidance and support.
We have also started a Nationwide Peer Support Group for Families that have experienced a line of duty death. For more information on joining the peer support group please call Dawn at 954.540.0268.
The holidays are not an easy time for everyone especially the families and children who have lost their loved on in the line of duty. December 2021 we will be kicking off our annual "Be a Hero for the Holidays" program to help bring cheer to families that have lost a loved one.
We are currently organizing a yearly retreat for families of fallen first responders to enjoy a few adventure filled days in Central Florida to relax and recharge.
