John Palmer Art names The H.E.A.R.T. Program as 2017 Charity of the Year
Artist John Ross Palmer has a keen understanding that his success is dependent upon supporting the community that supports him. His humanitarian efforts to improve Houston further his life mission to destroy the stereotype of the struggling artist.

Artist John Ross Palmer says, "I believe everyone deserves a chance to succeed independently. Although I serve a very different population with my artist mentorship program, I'm very familiar with people being told 'they cannot do something' and then the training and confidence coaching it requires to undo those barriers. My two visits to H.E.A.R.T. headquarters have been unbelievably inspiring and I'm exhilarated to support their mission throughout 2017." Jane Cummins, Executive Director of the H.E.A.R.T. Program, shares Palmer's excitement, "Everyone at The H.E.A.R.T. Program is thrilled to partner with John Ross Palmer through his Charity of the Year program and to join the impressive list of charities selected in the past. We are very excited about his commitment to our work benefiting people with intellectual challenges in our community. We are honored that he sees the beauty in us, and we thank John Ross Palmer from the bottom of our hearts."
