Join us to end illiteracy and poverty.

Hale Empowerment and Revitalization Org (HERO)

HERO works as a catalyst for community development in areas of the Alabama Black Belt to end rural poverty. As a non-profit, HERO provides economic development, community resources, housing education, and affordable housing construction. When funding is available we also provide youth programming.

Children and mothers living below poverty lack access to decent education and magazines provide a link to making reading fun and relevant. Most teens graduating from high school are reading at 3rd to 5th grade reading level. With the high levels of poverty and unemployment, magazines bring a link to the world outside that can create passion and opportunity for learning.
