Founder & CEO
Our Heroes, Inc. founder, Ruth Jenkins, has always had a passion for horses. As a native of Brunswick County, she knows first hand the lack of resources many families in the area face. Also, as a military spouse, a retired Department of the Army civilian and someone who was working in the Pentagon on 9/11, she also has an understanding of the sacrifices of our veterans, military personnel, first responders and the families of these heroes. In 2013 along with her husband Phillip, a retired Army Vietnam veteran, they purchased 60 acres of land in Bolivia, North Carolina and founded our Heroes. Our Heroes continues to grow and our dedication to the community and those in need will always be our driving force!
