Don Heeringa

Don has been a volunteer, advocate, and supporter for numerous non-profits over the years and his commitment to the organizations he served has no boundaries. We, HELP of Door County, have been both honored and blessed when he chose to serve on our Board. We cannot put into words how valuable his leadership has been. It is through his knowledge, experience, and guidance that we have been able to grow our organization as we continue to provide services for victims of domestic abuse.

Don: It has been a privilege and an honor to work alongside of you. Learning, unlearning, and carrying forward the foundational work and leadership you have given to all of us connected to HELP of Door County. I admire you and am so appreciative to have started this journey as Executive Director with you by my side.
