From the Alexandria Gazette Packet – Voices to be Heard

“We are extremely grateful for Heard’s continued outreach and engagement with those in our custody.”

— Sheriff Dana Lawhorne

And we are grateful to the Alexandria Gazette Packet for promoting the winners of our writing contest with the Alexandria Adult Detention Center. You are always so supportive of our work! Btw, did you know that you made Mr. Pixley and Mr. Talbert’s day? They were each given a copy of your article and were sooooo happy! Thank you for allowing them to be heard! Scroll down to page 7 to see our winners or read it here:


“It is a Phenomenal Program”

“…it is a phenomenal program.” Why, they’re talking about us! The best testament to the power and positive impact of our work is when our program partners praise us. It makes our day. Here, Friends of Guest House executive director Kari Galloway mentions Heard’s work as part of how they are keeping their residents safe and sane in a feature posted in the Alexandria Gazette Packet.  Thank you Kari! You are the best and we love working with you!
