F.B. Heron Foundation
Since 1992, Heron’s mission has been to help people and communities help themselves, especially those at the bottom of the economic ladder. Its goal is to help people in the United States escape poverty, thrive, and enjoy the benefits of full livelihood, opportunity and community. Heron’s strategy is to invest capital to expand reliable employment and economic opportunity for those on the margins. Without reliable work for a growing number of people, poverty and other ills undermine America’s promise of “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” Heron believes poverty is a toxic but fixable problem, and that through the creation of jobs there is an opportunity to empower people so that humanity can reach its highest potential.
