Programs: The H.E.R.O.E.S. 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.
