Our Founder - Pamela L. Iles, Superior Court Judge (retired)

In 2004, Judge Iles met with the officials at the Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton to discuss ways to impact young Marines struggling with PTSD who were appearing in her courtroom. As a result, the Heroes and Healthy Families program was formed. To date this program has served over 20,000 Marines and their families across the United States at eight different military installations. Judge Iles served as a Superior Court Judge and Deputy District Attorney in Orange County for 35 years. She now serves on the Advisory Board for the Heroes and Healthy Families Program.
