Hello friends!

I’m Brandy, Mental Health Director for The Janice Hart Foundation (TJHF) and I’m so honored to be a part of this beautiful, heart-centered organization whose mission is to support the needs of caregivers in our community!

I met Ashley, our founder, years ago through a mutual friend and immediately felt how passionate she was about helping people. That is something I immediately connected with since I work in the mental health field and am passionate about helping people as well. Little did I know we would reconnect years later and I would have the opportunity to work together to create a community for caregivers! Ashley has created a wonderful team here to accomplish our shared goals in supporting you!

My journey into working in the mental health field stemmed from my own experiences of needing support in challenging moments of transition in my personal life. I understand what it feels like to go through difficult times alone and with very little support. It makes those times much more challenging without the connection and support from other people who understand what you’re going through and can offer emotional support, guidance, and resources. We were never meant to live in isolation from others or to operate in an overly independent way as our society has unfortunately taught us. I firmly believe we survive trying times, heal, and thrive in our life when we are connected with others, and this is exactly what TJHF is built on…a foundation of connection and support.

It's often a universal experience that caregivers are left to navigate caring for their loved one(s) in isolation. Caring for a loved one in their time of need is one of the more difficult experiences to go through in life because of the toll it can unfortunately take on our mental, emotional, physical, spiritual, and even financial health. Being a caregiver is still difficult to manage even in the best-case scenarios where there are supportive family members who are able to share in the responsibilities. However, there are a lot of families where this doesn’t happen for one reason or the other. That’s where TJHF steps in to fill in the gap; that’s our mission! We want you to have the supports YOU need to be able to take care of yourself through this so you can focus on what’s most important…being there for your loved one.

It is our greatest hope that you and your loved ones will join us on this journey of creating a support network for those who love so big that they’re willing to make sacrifices to support a loved one during their greatest time of need. We want to give back to you, our caregivers, who give so much of yourself to care for the ones you love the most. With deep gratitude, and I speak for all of us here, we just want to say thank you for all you do. We’re honored to support you!

Love + Light,
