Taya's experience with service members who are suicidal and/or fall to addiction when their last safe place, their marriage is ending, propels her forward with the mission. The success in these marriages is different than in the civilian world and requires different tools. At Chris Kyle Frog Foundation, Taya's passion of changing the world by fighting for the marriages of those who fight for us, is having a life--changing impact on military and first responder couples and their children. With a team of people behind the mission, CKFF is helping these families not only survive their life of service, but thrive.
