I’m Holding Out for a Hero 11/20/21

Well friends, first I hope you are all well.  Second, I am looking for “Hero Stories”.  As Bonnie Tyler’s infamous ’80s song would say, “I need a hero, I’m holding out for a hero till the morning light.”  Bonnie’s Hero song  And for those of you like me, who can’t unpair this song from the 1984 film “Footloose,” I’m also giving you the Scene from Footloose 🙂

See below for a description of our Hero Highlights category. Material can be submitted  anonymously. Word expectation: 600-800 words is typical, we can talk about more words, and will always take less, as impactful messages can be very brief sometimes. Contact me or submit your blog entry for consideration at: madamchik@tristatetraumanetwork.org

Hero Highlights category of the “The Hope Chest” blog:

In our Hero Highlights posts, we will be focused upon trauma-informed “heroes” in our community. Professionals and/or agencies that exemplify what it means to be trauma-informed or trauma-responsive will be written about. These can be posts from consumers receiving their services or posts from the agencies or professionals themselves, sharing stories about what they did to be more trauma-informed or responsive in their practices and what impact that had upon those they serve or upon their fellow employees.

Thank you for being part of our Network! I look forward to your submission for this blog!

May your day be sprinkled with HOPE!

Melissa Adamchik, Executive Director, Tristate Trauma Network
