Hometown Help for Heroes

The Hometown Help for Heroes initiative marshals the community's public and private resources to alleviate some of the practical burdens that families of a deployed head of household will face. 

Fishers Department of Public Works (DPW) manages the program, which offers families with deployed head of households services including driveway and sidewalk snow removal and lawn mowing and trimming services during the summer months. 

All families that meet the program requirements are encouraged to submit an application.
