We help air force
combat controllers

First There Foundation is a passionate 501(c)(3) non-profit organization devoted to supporting all Combat Controllers during life’s most challenging moments. We understand the pain of feeling abandoned, and aimless, and the profound grief of losing a cherished one. 

Our mission is to offer wide-ranging assistance, covering mental, financial, career, and substance abuse support for the Combat Controller community.

Our unwavering pledge to our teammates and their families includes:

  • Providing steadfast and round-the-clock support, ensuring they know we are there for them 365 days a year, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
  • Diligently working towards eliminating suicide among our teammates, creating an atmosphere of hope and solidarity.
  • Reigniting a sense of self-confidence, purpose, and self-esteem in those we serve, enabling them to overcome adversity and thrive.


Our one misson is to provide Air Force Combat Contollers with what they need to thrive.
