Interview

Brad Hearst- Founder/ Executive Director from Survivors Joining for Hope

Ashley Thuringer- Director from Survivors Joining for Hope

Survivors Joining for Hope was founded by survivors, for survivors. Knowing firsthand the impact losing a loved one has on those left behind, we strive to lessen the hardship experienced by individuals and families who have been affected by suicide.  With the help of generous donations, grants, and partnerships with local businesses, our organization provides access to financial assistance, grief counseling, and other services so survivors can focus on recovery. In addition, we believe in increasing suicide awareness in the hopes of inspiring greater attention to preventative measures and means of support for those in need before it’s too late.  While suicide may never disappear, we pride ourselves on speaking out on behalf of those who have been lost or need help so we can help those who are still here. Together we can make a difference.
