HEROES, Inc. has a singular goal: to honor the supreme sacrifice made by law enforcement officers and firefighters who give their lives in the line of duty while ensuring the safety of citizens in the greater Washington area. They honor these fallen heroes by assisting their spouses and children, beginning within 24 hours of the tragic loss and continuing indefinitely.
HEROES, Inc. believes that spouses and children of fallen heroes have enough urgent concerns without having to worry about financial ones. So, acting in strictest confidentiality, they offer financial assistance to ensure that housing and other basic needs are met. They also offer other assistance and advice as needed. They offer financial and legal expertise free of charge — again, in confidence — to help the spouse make smart decisions, protect against loss, and stay on solid financial ground.
Mission Statement: HEROES, Inc. is dedicated to aid families of law enforcement officers and firefighters who have died in the line of duty in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area.
Family Discretionary Grant. Serving your community, in whatever way you can, is admirable, and in this method of service, potentially dangerous. Because we believe in family helping families, we wanted to do what we could to help those families who are struggling through the loss of a loved one who died trying to protect those in need.
