We Answer the Call When Tragedy Strikes

When first responders need us most, we’ll be there!

Supporting Heroes responds to line-of-duty deaths of first responders in all of Indiana, Kentucky, and Missouri. We provide significant support to families and assist agencies as they also support the families, their personnel, and their communities.

Foundational Principles

ULTIMATE SACRIFICE

No life is more important or less important than another. Whether a first responder works for a small department or large, is paid or volunteer, or how dramatic the circumstances of death, when one gives his/her life, it is the ultimate sacrifice.

ULTIMATE HONOR

Ultimate Sacrifice makes one worthy of Ultimate Honor -- which means that the highest symbolic and traditional respectful honors of a field of service are rendered -- not because someone is watching, but because it is what a fallen hero deserves.

PEACE OF MIND

Those who routinely risk their lives serving and protecting others should have comfort in knowing that, should they fall in the line of duty, those they love will be well cared for.

ADVOCACY

We advocate for the needs of survivors from the time of tragedy forward. From how they should be notified, their privacy and safety, their voice in the funeral planning process, the rendering of professional honors, benefits, etc., we do not stop.
