Executive Director Letter 2017

Ladies & Gentlemen, Four years ago, my first year-end recap was more of a wish list for what I wanted to happen at HPF and I admit, I didn’t know what I was getting myself into. We were new, we were finding our sea legs and we were trying to figure out how to create a community. We didn’t know what direction HPF was going, but we knew there was a need for what we were trying to accomplish. Now, that I have had some time to watch HPF grow, this letter has become my favorite part of the year. [...]

HPF Heroes – Tonya

Hi my name is Tonya, and I am a very proud mum of a very brave young man who was sexually assaulted by someone he trusted.

Executive Director Letter 2016

HPF as an organization witnessed this first hand through the number of people we helped (children and adults), the number of impressions we made and the amount of money that we raised. Spoiler alert: all were our highest totals since we founded this thing back in 2013. That does not happen without your participation and there [...]

Sixth Year Anniversary – Oprah 200 Men Episode

It’s been six years since the landmark episode of “200 Men Molested” aired on the Oprah Winfrey Show where I had the honor to stand alongside 199 other men and Tyler Perry and give testimony of my history of child sexual abuse!  From there – the stigma of shame and the secrecy had been shattered and my goal to help others began and my life changed forever in the best of ways! Today, I/we share the link of that amazing episode for two reasons. It’s time to have a discussion. If you have children, take a moment to watch the [...]
