Joseph Andrews

The WALK OF HEARTS award was founded by one of our civic leaders, Joseph Andrews, an active business member and President Emeritus of the Canoga Park/West Hills Chamber of Commerce. Inspired by the hard work and dedication of his mother, who worked at one of the schools he himself attended, and the positive influence that certain teachers had during his formative years, Joseph created the WALK OF HEARTS Foundation. A way of bringing overdue recognition to those teachers and individuals who have the unique ability to inspire, mold and perhaps - with a word or two of encouragement—change a life forever. The concept of the WALK OF HEARTS was presented to the Canoga Park/West Hills Chamber of Commerce in 2003, after Joe read an article in the Daily News about the great work the City of Los Angeles Community Redevelopment Agency was doing in downtown Canoga Park. The inaugural ceremony was held in 2004 with 10 teachers honored. View Guest page

By the time she left, the organization’s total combined affiliate and national organization annual revenues approached one billion. Her call to "fight forward" scored insurance coverage for contraceptives and accessible emergency contraception.
