H.E.R.O.E.S. Care Inc. via Crowdrise
June 10, 2015
Who we are:
H.E.R.O.E.S. Care is a national charity serving Military Members, Veterans and their Families through a network of specially trained caregivers. Since 2003, H.E.R.O.E.S. Care has provided material, financial and other support to more than 100,000 military families.
Why does your gift matter?
Here's one reason: A proud, hard-working, partially disabled post 9/11 Veteran, married with six children, had been struggling for some time. When circumstances finally became too much for his family to bear, he contacted us for assistance. We were able to bring his past-due utility bills up-to-date, provide food assistance, diapers and other baby supplies, repair his vehicle through one of our trusted facilities, and arrange and fund his relocation from a house trailer in extremely poor condition into a rental home large enough to accommodate his family. Our Case Manager connected him to counselling providers and assisted him in completing his application for VA benefits. Through one of our network of veteran friendly businesses, he now has a real and meaningful full-time job and earns enough to properly support his family. Just one example of how your monetary gifts provide immediate relief and long-term solutions for families coping with the complex effects of military service.
What your gift can do:
$10 buys 100 pounds of non-perishable foods so that a Military Mom doesn’t have to send her kids to bed hungry
$25 provides a gift card for emergency travel so that a family can be near their Wounded Warrior during recovery at a medical facility
$50 provides a baby supply kit for a new Military Mom
$100 provides for the training for a Hometown Support Volunteer to care for a military family before, during, and after deployment in the community where they live
$250 prevents disconnection of utilities
$500 prevents the repossession of a vehicle
$1000 prevents an eviction or foreclosure
$5000 provides supplies for major home repairs or modifications to accommodate a wheelchair
We promise to make your gift work hard. Just under 99 cents of every dollar we receive is made available to military families. Few charities are as effective at financial and material stewardship.
Integrity is our watchword. We are a Gold Participant of Guidestar, A+ rated by the BBB, are rated Best in America by the ICA, are listed as a 2014 Top rated Non Profit by GreatNonprofits (one of only 32 of the tens of thousands of military support charities eligible to receive this national distinction) and have received perfect independent audits for the last five years.
Make no mistake. Your gift matters. You will provide help and hope when it's needed most. They have given so much. Now's your chance to give something back.
