The Front Line Foundation (FLF) is a Minnesota 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization that supports those who serve on the front line of public safety in our communities. The organization was founded by Joseph Strauss, who passionately believes in supporting the brave men and women who serve on the frontline of our society as Law Enforcement Officers, SWAT Teams, Firefighters, EMT Professionals, and the Minnesota National Guard.

They protect us every day. They face natural and man-made disasters and often deal with armed and dangerous criminals, injured or impaired individuals wielding weapons, and even emotionally charged and threatening domestic disputes. They are the Front Line Defenders of our neighborhoods, towns, and cities who face and diffuse the high-risk, frequently appalling situations we know or hear about, with disbelief, on the news.

Our organization was started by a distinguished Board of Founders and is led by an accomplished Board of Directors.

We were founded in 2018.
