Heards’ Heralds of Hope
Anne Heard & Heard’s Heralds of Hope
Anne Heard is one of our most involved volunteers and acts as one of the facilitators for our Family to Family education classes. Every year for our Step Forward Walk, Anne involved her family & friends to support our mission and the community by raising funds and being active participants.
“We are passionate about the education, support and advocacy work of NAMI LOUISVILLE, and we want to help them support family members, caregivers, and friends who have a loved one living with mental illness. Most of you know the personal story of our son, Thomas, and his lifelong struggle with mental illness. He’s the bravest person we know! It is because of him that we volunteer for NAMI Louisville. NAMI has helped us better understand mental illness and communicate with our son, and learn how to navigate the mental health system and fight the stigma that exists for persons living with mental illness and their families. Most of all, NAMI Louisville has given us unfailing support throughout our journey with our son. Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means so much to us!”
