Supporting our local Heroes. Donate and/or join in.
HEROES AMONG US is a not-for-profit organization that's sole purpose is to provide assistance for the bravest among us. LOCAL men and women who have patriotically and voluntarily risked all to provide you and me with the defense of our freedom that is so easily taken for granted. We are 100% volunteers. NO SALARIES, NO RENT....NO OVERHEAD. 99%+ of all of the donations that we are privieged to receive, go right back out to the Veterans, Active Duty and First Responders that may need our support.
Also, we often make decisions to provide support, in hours, NOT WEEKS and MONTHS!!!
1% of the United States population serve in the Military. They are the true 1% in America.
We are not a national Warrior support organization. Our goal is the support for active and veteran heroes that are from or reside locally.
Let us NEVER forget the sacrifice and courage of these young men and women.
Heroes Among Us, along with Catholic Charties, Kansas City VA AW2 Advocates and Point Man International Ministries had the very distinct privilege and pleasure to host 110 of America's finest Veterans and Active Duty and their families at Worlds of Fun and Oceans of Fun on Father's Day, June 21, 2015. It's a very humbling activity to provide these families, that have sacrificed so much, can now share some much deserved downtime with each other. It's remarkable to be part of that. Please consider sending a check for a fully tax deductible donation. Practically 100% of every dollar goes right back to support these HEROES.
