In Honor of Lori Heron

The Board of Project ECHO encourages all who knew and loved Lori to join us on Wednesday, June 5, 2024 at Jefferson Patterson Park Pavilion from 1:00p – 4:00p. This will be a time for the family to meet with all who wish to share condolences and memories of Lori.

For 30 years, Lori served as the house manager/ Executive Director of Project ECHO. When she started, it was a small shelter for eight people on St. John Vianney Church grounds. Under her direction, it grew to a 40-bed, 90-day shelter for men, women, and children. It became a shelter whose atmosphere is unique in that it is a family atmosphere whose mission is to give the residents time to regroup, put their lives back together, and move on as productive members of society, rather than the all-too-frequent institutional atmosphere of many shelters. She was an exceptional and caring leader and instilled a spirit of caring and compassion in those carrying out Project ECHO’s mission and vision.

During her 30 years at Project ECHO, Lori touched the souls of many, not only the residents but also the volunteers and staff who worked with Lori and supported Project ECHO. She will be deeply missed. In honor of Lori’s commitment to Project ECHO, we kindly request that, in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the shelter in her memory.
