Why support Heroes at Home? Heroes at Home is one of fifteen NYS funded PFC Joseph Dwyer Peer to Peer Programs. We provide peer support to anyone who has served in the military, as well as their families, regardless of discharge status, era in which they served or combat experience. Since 2012, they have partnered with the VA, the VFW and American Legion, and community providers to ensure that Veterans have access to services, and to provide support as they navigate the reintegration process. All of the money raised will be used to support our local Veterans through the efforts of Heroes at Home.
