Kerry Brock

Volunteer with Women’s Healthy Environments Initiative

“There’s a saying that goes… ‘I give, not because I have much, but because I know what it’s like to have nothing.’ I’ve been blessed in this hard life to be given hand ups, handouts and everything in between. So, in my 20s, once I realized that I had something to offer that could maybe lift someone’s burden, as mine had been, I felt compelled to give of myself in my community. That was 25 years ago. I hope I give 25 more.”
