MANSFIELD, OH- Healing Hearts Counseling Center at Parkside was one of several organizations that received an Award from the Mansfield Branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP).

Mansfield NAACP President Geron Tate presented the award Saturday evening to Healing Hearts VP of Operations and Director of AOD Services DeWayne Lee and Owner and Executive Director Maja-lisa Anderson Lee during the organization’s 33rd Annual Freedom Fund Banquet at the Mid-Ohio Conference Center.

“We need to continue to work collectively and stamp out drugs in the community – because it is killing our kids and killing our parents.” DeWayne Lee, Co-Director said. Healing Hearts Counseling Center was recognized for their work in the Mansfield community. “I would like for there to be no need for some of the things we do.” Co-Director Maja-lisa Anderson Lee said.

The annual banquet raises funds for the branch’s scholarship program and the local branch. The banquet’s keynote speaker was Ray Miller, current publisher of the Columbus African American News Journal and former Ohio State senator and state representative. “Don’t Hate. Appreciate.” was the title of his address in which he shared the importance of speaking the truth and the challenge of living out the message to “love your enemies”.
