Liam’s Anchor

It is Hope That Anchors the Soul

Liam’s Anchor was started in 2019 by the Cunningham family in honor and memory of their beloved son, Liam who was kind, charismatic and funny. Liam was lost to a drug overdose on September 27, 2016.

In 2014, Liam and his friend, Mark Franks, started a small apparel company, using an anchor Liam created and patented with the hooks in the shape of Cape Cod. Liam’s dream was to have his own apparel company one day featuring his Cape anchor. Sue, Phil, and Katie Cunningham, along with Liam’s girlfriend, Sara, started Liam’s Anchor to honor his spirit and carry on his legacy of helping others.

Baseball hats and car decals are available with Liam’s anchor in purple, the color of addiction awareness and recovery with Herren Project inscribed on the back. The net proceeds of all sales are donated to Herren Project in order to support our mission of education, outreach, advocacy and treatment for addiction and recovery.

Jefferson Parish

By Michael W. Hull

Michael has partnered with Herren Project by donating 10% of the profits generated by his novel, Jefferson Parish.

Jefferson Parish is the story of a boy, Matthew Laurent. Born during the post-desegregated south but before full acceptance of races “other” than his own, the white race. While much of the overt racism of the old south was gone, it was not totally eradicated. In fact, in the early 1980’s there were still plenty of racist holdouts, unwilling to let their old, oppressive way die.

Voices for Non-Opioid Choices

Herren Project is a member of Voices for Non-Opioid Choices (“Voices”) and proud to endorse The Non-Opioids Prevent Addiction in the Nation Act (“NOPAIN Act”), a bipartisan piece of legislation designed to increase patient and provider access to non-opioid approaches to acute pain management.

Voices is a nonpartisan coalition dedicated to preventing opioid addiction before it starts by increasing patient access to non-opioid therapies and approaches to managing acute pain. Acute pain patients, including those experiencing surgery-related pain, often receive powerful medications to manage their pain. The surgical setting, in particular, has become a potential path to opioid abuse, misuse, and addiction in America.
