Support & Services

The Road to Recovery for Our
Community Heroes

Mission Statement

We provide peer-to-peer support and guidance to sustain strong recoveries in our community heroes. We offer veteran support and service, hope, and advocacy for heroes wanting to recover, so we can build resilience and thrive in our communities.

Vision

Heroes Comfort was organized to address the stigma surrounding PTSD and community heroes. Heroes Comfort provides support for individuals working as first responders, 9-1-1 dispatchers, correctional officers, ER and critical care nurses, veterans, and those who work or respond to critical incidents where exposure to external psychological trauma may be present.

Peer Support

Peer support workers are successful in the recovery process and can help others experiencing situations similar to theirs. Through shared understanding, respect, and mutual empowerment, peer support workers help their peers become and stay engaged in the recovery process. Peer support services can effectively extend treatment beyond the clinical setting and into the everyday environment of those seeking a successful, sustained recovery process.

Therapy Sessions

Participants in the Heroes Comfort program are eligible to receive up to three free sessions for mental health assistance from a licensed counselor. Care for concerns such as depression, anxiety, relationship, and family issues are available.

Grounding Groups/Education

Grounding is a practice that can help pull away from flashbacks, unwanted memories, and negative or challenging emotions. Grounding techniques may help distract you from what you are experiencing and refocus on what is happening in the present moment. Grounding techniques can help create space from distressing feelings in nearly any situation but are especially helpful if you are wrestling with PTSD, depression, anxiety, or other associated symptoms.

Support

HEROES COMFORT is a fully operational peer support survival group. We are dedicated to the men and women who put on the uniforms of first responders, correctional officers, 9-1-1 dispatchers, nurses, and veterans. Without our heroes, society would look much different – chaos, massive crime, and people suffering.

While we are up and running, it is only because of generous donations from board members, which cannot be sustained.

As a recognized 501C3 non-profit organization, we have expenses that are NOT related to the compensation of any board members that we are starting to dip into personal accounts to pay for things like the 800 support line, HIPPA compliant emails, etc.

We hate to ask, but if there is any way you could spare a donation until we get the funding through grants and private entities that have promised us some kind of sponsorship, that would be awesome! If you would like to donate, please visit the PayPal link below. Thank you in advance from all of us volunteers and the communities of people we serve. God bless!
