Heroes with Heart Postponed

Maine Behavioral Healthcare is closely monitoring the emerging public health concern involving novel coronavirus outbreak (COVID-19).  In the interest of the safety of our honorees, guests and community we made the difficult decision to postpone the 15th Annual Heroes with Heart Celebration scheduled for Tuesday, April 14.  We will communicate the new date once it has been set and hope you can join us. 

Our event supporters have several options: 

  • Event reservations will be honored for the new date
  • Convert your reservation to a fully tax-deductible gift to the Trauma Intervention Program (TIP)
  • A full refund of your event contribution

Please let us know your preference by contacting Lisa Bush, Development Officer, at 207-661-6101 or by email. We'll also be calling event supporters to ensure they’ve seen this message.

2020 Heart of Gold Honoree

Margo Walsh, Founder and CEO of MaineWorks
Margo founded MaineWorks in 2011 to provide employment for people in recovery from
substance use 
disorder, reentry from jail and prison, and returning Veterans
with obstacles to employment.  She attended the 2019 State of the Union address in
Washington, DC as the guest of Senator Angus King, who said, “By helping
Maine people in recovery and those reentering society after incarceration,
Margo is doing vital work on two of the most important issues facing Maine today:
the opioid epidemic and our workforce shortage.”
