Origins of Here Tomorrow

Joe Kenney was helpless when his son, Gary, was hopeless. Gary battled depression by shutting out the man he called his only friend in the world – his father. Despite connections across the country from a successful business career, Joe found that mental health resources were not only insufficient, they were nearly nonexistent. “I couldn’t find any help here, I didn’t know where to go or what to do, and I know everybody. How’s the average person supposed to find help?”

In April 2019, Gary died by suicide. At Gary’s funeral, Joe vowed to create something new that would save others from such a loss. By April 2021, Joe was front page news, having opened the doors of Here Tomorrow just two months prior.
