Find out how Kids Rank not only understands the military culture but has developed opportunities for our kids to flourish regardless of their location.


"It's important to play our role in building communities of care for our military kids".

This podcast has been made possible thanks to the generous support from the Naval Academy Spouses' & Civilians' Club.

Kelcey Liverpool is the Co-Founder and Executive Director of Kids Rank, founded in 2012 as a nonprofit organization designed specifically to support the social and emotional well-being of military and veteran children. As a Navy spouse for 17 years, moving with her family a total of 9 times and volunteering in several roles at various military installation agencies, she understands first-hand the challenges that are faced by children and families of service members. Inspired by her own children’s resilience through many moves, separations and constant transitions Ms. Liverpool felt it was important to focus on the whole child recognizing both their strengths and challenges.


Over the past 8 years, under Kelcey’s leadership, Kids Rank has grown as a trusted organization in the Illinois military and veteran community with plans for expansion in the future strategic plan. In that time Kelcey has successfully built strong relationships and partnered with several organizations, such as the National Veterans Art Museum, USO of Illinois, the Red Cross, the Military Child Education Coalition and others in an effort to further the Kids Rank mission and awareness of supporting the needs of military connected children.


Kelcey was recently chosen to participate in a 2-year program as a Summit Fellow, a program that seeks to connect impact-driven leaders within the Summit community to affect positive change in the world and broaden their reach. Kelcey was also named as a 2019 Aspen Fellow.
