H.E.R.O.E.S. Care, Inc.
August 14, 2013

I love this organization. As a former soldier, wife of a current soldier, and also current FRG (family readiness group) lead they are always there when we need them. I was also a lead volunteer when the guys were on state emergency duty for a month for floods last summer. Another wife and I had spent the morning collecting items to take to Heroes Care after our FRG decided we would like to donate something to them for all they do. We arrived with a truck load and left with a truck load of items to deliver to the soldiers on SED. We didn't plan on taking anything with us, but of course they wanted to make sure we did not leave with an empty truck. That night the guys each got their own box of GS cookies as well as many other items and they also had a connection with a truck load of Gatorade to donate and helped me make arrangements to have it picked up and delivered to them on duty, what a surprise for them. My husband's work drove the truck and dropped off the pallets. They are also always there when we need items for soldiers families, every time I call or refer a soldier they are very helpful. My family and I (about 15 of us) decided to help them out one day and spent the day doing inventory and rearranging items, they were going to feed us, imagine their surprise when we had brought our own food too! All the kids had fun and expressed interest in doing it again when we are all together. I was able to help another wife get furniture while her husband was deployed and deliver it to her home, he was surprised to see the pictures and she was thrilled. Heroes Care is always doing something, big or small, to make sure needs are met and wants can be too. I love working with them and appreciate everything they have done for both units that I take care of.

SIDS Resources, Inc.
June 26, 2010

After our daughter Katie died we were lost, and then we got a phone call from Lori Ahrens (Behrens). She was a lifesaver. We were able to take our older two daughters, 3 and 5 at the time, to the SIDS office to talk to someone, and we were given the SIDS Survival Guide... I read it cover to cover and realized we were not alone. It was so good to go to the monthly meetings and know I had a friend there, someone who cared and worried about me. We are still friends 14 yrs later.
