Testimonials

“They made a huge difference in our agency… We will always be indebted for their compassion and all they gave without asking anything in return.”

Sheriff Phillip Wimpee, Meade County Sheriff's Office (Brandenburg, Kentucky)

“I have watched the organization work for years and have always been impressed. And when my agency suffered a line-of-duty death, they were amazing!”

Chief Pat Walsh (Retired), McMahan Fire District (Louisville, Kentucky)

“I can’t thank the Supporting Heroes staff and volunteers enough for their support after the loss of Chief Deputy Cash. They were here within hours for the Cash family, myself, and our agency. I was at a loss for what to do. They stepped in immediately and offered help and advice. This is a great organization!”

Sheriff Nicky Knight, Calloway County Sheriff's Office (Murray, Kentucky)

“When we experienced a line-of-duty death, I was so thankful for Supporting Heroes. They were onsite quickly and handled the logistics of the visitation and funeral – enabling me to focus on taking care of our agency and our deputy’s family. Everything was done to perfection! I am so thankful for this organization!”

Chaplain Mike Justice, Scott County Sheriff's Office (Georgetown, Kentucky)
