  • The Herocare Platform Rewards Discount Program Housing & Financial Program Supplements Income Creates Homeownership The Herocare Platform Herocare is a Platform for helping essential services workers, the heartbeat of our communities, attain homeownership and financial security Herocare’s Housing & Financial Program provides comprehensive resources, services and solutions aimed at helping heroes attain homeownership. The purpose of the Herocare Rewards Program is to help heroes save money on a monthly basis by providing them with discounts at all types of retail and service based businesses both locally and nationally. As heroes save money at these participating businesses, they can offset lower wages and reallocate those dollars to savings or retirement accounts or help ease the dramatic increases in the cost of living. This results in greater financial security. Copyright © 2008 Herocare, Inc. All Rights Reserved.
