Logan's Heart and Smiles Welcomes First Executive Director

Family poses for picture after construction project

For 20 years, Logan’s Heart and Smiles has carried out the legacy of Logan Herr by spreading smiles to families across Dane County with children who have disabilities. Logan was born with cerebral palsy, so his father, Joe Herr, understood the financial strain families experience. He founded the organization because he believed that being able to easily get a child in and out of the home should not be a luxury.

Logan’s has helped more than 200 families with custom home modifications including ramps, fences, handrails, bathroom renovations and accessible walkways.

Logan’s always has been a completely volunteer-based organization. However, with the grant from MCF, it hired its first full-time Executive Director, Angela Wallace. Wallace has been an active volunteer with Logan’s for many years and is deeply invested in the organization.

“I am honored to be the first paid employee to help set the organization up for the next 20 years,” shared Wallace. She is excited to establish “a roadmap of how the organization runs from how an application is received to how we raise funds.” Wallace continued, “Having documented policies and procedures in place will set Logan’s on the path to long-term sustainability.”
