In 2011, The Herren Project was founded with the goal of helping one person, one family at a time touched by addiction. Please help us continue our mission and programs by getting involved!

Make a Donation

The Herren Project develops and sponsors initiatives in three specific areas of focus including education, treatment navigation and mentoring. All programs and initiatives are funded through private donations and grants. Each and every dollar counts as we work to positively impact families and individuals affected by addiction. >>Donate Now

Start a Community THP Project Purple Initative 

The Herren Project launched the THP Project Purple Initiative in 2012 to enable volunteers to bring the THP Project Purple Initiative message to their community. A national anti-substance abuse campaign, THP Project Purple Initiative, empowers youth to stand up and make a difference. Going Purple gives students motivation and support as they embrace a message of education and awareness. Students learn that they do not need drugs and alcohol to meet life’s challenges; that they are perfect the way they are. Visit for more information on how to bring awareness to the issue of substance abuse to your community or within your school. >>THP Project Purple Initiative
