About Us
OUR MISSION
Preserve the Family

Providing support and resources to Navy SEALs and their families. The goal of the Charles Humphrey Keating IV Foundation is to research, develop, and implement evidence-based solutions to maintain family unity while improving the transition from Front Lines to Home Front.

One can only imagine the stress of being an active duty Navy SEAL. The distance and pressure of deployments, the buildup, and workups prior to leaving, the time apart from your loved ones, the theater of war, and the ambiguity of the return home can be, at times, emotionally insurmountable. Our goal is to prepare for and minimize the consequences of those stresses in order to keep the focus of the warrior on the things that keep him focused on his job and a peaceful family life.

It is our purpose to fully understand, lengthen, and customize the decompression process for the life of Navy SEALs and their families. We challenge you to join us in our mission as this problem needs immediate attention.

Let’s create an environment where these warriors thrive on the home front – they our are best, and they deserve our best.
