The BackStoppers® provides ongoing needed financial assistance and support to the spouses and dependent children of all police officers, firefighters and volunteer firefighters, and publicly-funded paramedics and EMTs in our coverage area who have lost their lives in the line of duty.
In addition to our mission of supporting the families of fallen heroes, BackStoppers provides assistance to
first responders who suffer a catastrophic injury performing their duty.
The BackStoppers supports families of fallen heroes by paying off all debt, providing health and dental insurance, reimbursing for out-of-pocket medical expenses, covering tuition and educational costs from daycare through university, and assisting with miscellaneous extraordinary expenses.
Currently supports approximately 80 families with 70 dependent children
The BackStoppers’ assistance is immediate and ongoing. Upon the death of a police officer, firefighter, publicly-funded paramedic, or EMT, his or her family receives a check for $10,000 from The BackStoppers with an assurance of further help.
Within a few weeks, The BackStoppers’ representatives meet with the surviving spouse to identify the family’s other financial obligations. The organization’s goal is to make the family debt-free and provide ongoing support for education and other extraordinary expenses.
