Care Hometown Support Program is an affiliation of program partners working together to provide one-on-one dedicated care for military families in the communities where they live. A specially trained, gender matched volunteer is assigned to a primary care receiver or PCR (spouse/significant other/other adult family member) designated by the deploying service member. This Hometown Support Volunteer (HSV) monitors the family situation and coordinates community support. The HSV also has dedicated access to national organizations that can provide for financial needs and job placement services. The HSV is specially trained to detect the need for professional mental health care and can refer the PCR to the affiliated partner organization to intervene.All of this care begins before deployment, continues through deployment, and up to two years post deployment at the discretion of the family. There are no contracts to sign and all services are free of charge.

It is my privilege to volunteer with the Hometown Support Program here in CT. We received exceptional training for the work we do, and the support staff in St. Louis is constantly available to us for for advice/encouragement. H.E.R.O.E.S. Care is an organization run by the highest quality people with sky-high standards. It is the avenue by which I can finally do my part to serve those who so selflessly serve our nation---what an honor!

HEROES Care is an amazing organization, from the lady in the warehouse to the guy in charge of the whole team. I highly recommend them as a place to do business with. They're growing at crazy speeds and their only goal is to help Veterans and their Families! I have no doubt that everyone of them would give the shirt off their backs if someone needed it. Keep up the great work! I'm proud to have been able to meet them all and even more proud to Know that such an incredible mission exists in today's society! Thank you all, from the bottom of my heart, for what you do every day!

I have volunteered with this organization in the past and have involved my Army Reserve unit to assist as well. Great people and organization that's truly focused on the veteran and their families.

I am a heroes service volunteer and I think this program is fantastic. I only wish more men and woman of the military would join this program and have a caregiver walk with you or your spouse through this time in your life.

While H.E.R.O.E.S. Care begin in Missouri, it stretches all across the United States. I am privileged to be a trained Hometown Support Volunteer and Outpost Leader here in Connecticut.

I am a civilian, and it is entirely my honor to come alongside members of the military and/or their loved ones and provide one-on-one, local, long-term support, for as long as needed and in any way possible: before, during and after one's deployment.

I am so grateful for the avenue of H.E.R.O.E.S. Care as it provides me with a way to give back; to serve those who so selflessly serve me. In addition, I have discovered a whole army of people who want to help--they just did not know how or where to start.

Additionally, I must note that this organization is what it says it is, and does what it claims to do. They have their priorities in order and truly deserve GREAT Nonprofit status. I am proud to be part of their efforts.

At least once a year, a group of staff, family and friends from my place of employment gather at H.E.R.O.E.S. Care to put together care packages for troops who are deployed. It is a friendly competition between us to see how much we can put in the box and still close it. Last year, we set out to collect enough donations for 101 care packages to send to a unit deployed through Christmas. H.E.R.O.E.S. Care allowed us to use their space and when we ran out of donations, they gave us items to continue packing boxes. We finished with 103 boxes, but H.E.R.O.E.S. Care wasn’t finished. They ensured the boxes were addressed and shipped. We paid for the postage, they did all the coordinating and delivering to the local post office. Dave, Jon and the rest of the H.E.R.O.E.S. Care folks are wonderful people. They started years ago with a little girl’s dream and today, are positively impacting the lives of our military around the globe, their families and veterans. I’m a veteran and my life has been impacted just by volunteering. This is an organization focused on serving our military and their family; at times the support provided is life changing.

We learned about how once a month they have a free furniture giveaway day where families can come and pick from couches, chairs, and several other types of items that were donated. It is a first come first serve basis and the volunteers are really nice and helpful. Most of the items were rejected by the main furniture company and were given to heroes care. Each piece may have a small blemish from being a floor model or a scratch from shipping. These items are still in almost perfect condition. For families that need help being able to come and get a really nice piece of furniture for no cost can really make a difference. The organization also has a toy day and several other giveaway days throughout the month.

They went out of their way in a downpour to deliver free Blues tickets to me at a bus stop 'cause I didn't have a car to come to them. Also they steered me to the right person in Jefferson City to help a fellow veteran who needed help.

This organization stands for everything I believe in - supporting military families in the communities where they live. I have been and will continue to support this organization any way I can.
