Started in 2015, the P.S. You're My Hero Non-Profit helps victims of crime in St. Clair County, Michigan.
Comfort Room- The St. Clair County Prosecutors office is in the process of remodeling the waiting room in the victim's rights office. P.S. You're My Hero is supporting the remodeling project with comfortable furniture, a refrigerator, a child play section and other comfort items. The waiting room in the courthouse is reserved for those who are the victims of crime. It is a place to rest, regroup, and stay strong.
Support Packages- From therapy sessions, temporary shelter, to something as simple as buying lunch for families during their trial period, P.S. You're My Hero has developed a series of support packages that we can deliver to those victimized by crime in our area.
Comfort Dog- We are happy to announce that we are pursuing a partnership with the St. Clair County Prosecutors office in providing the availability of a comfort dog to those who have been recently victimized by crime.
