A Bit About Us

Turning Your Needs Into Action Plans

Here at Healing Hearts of Families USA, we’re committed to investing our expertise and resources into our communities meeting people where they are and guiding them to go a step further to change the lives of their children.

We started this journey in 2000 by 2001 we are driven by a  goal t keep moms safe from violence.  We expanded our services to include assisting families with loved ones incarcerated, providing a place for education along with behavior modification built into the program designed for children who were kicked out of alternative schools.  We also saw a need for children of mostly single parents to spend quality time with their parents and therefore we added a park for those experiences.  The park provided a place where parents can relax, decompress read a book, cook and watch their children play in the same space.  The American experience that the most affluent neighborhoods see is not the same one most Americans live in. We plan our activities and supports around the things that matter to the hearts of families and communities.  Our mission base centered on healing what tears and pulls families and communities apart and Healing Hearts provides mending programs, activities and family supports as we do our little part in making the the lives of children, their families or caregivers better and a healthy and safe place low income households and communities. 

We provide support to their parents as a means to stabilized the children and their futures. 

 

​Since 2000, we’ve been supporting our community in a variety of ways and measuring our success not by numbers and size, but by impacts and transformations of lives.  Its the long term impact that stabilizes those we serve our rewards are when they call back and tell us what we offered really help them, their thank you because now they see a future when they saw none.

 

Our hearts are in healing and helping families in times of crisis or need. 

 

We have created programs for family reintegration  and  programs as preventive measures to advert issues which could impact the success of children and their parents.

  • Our staff has worked and volunteered with municipalities, courts, state agencies and federal programs, creating business for public housing residents to support their communities need. 

  • Our organization have served over 1000 individuals impacted by various types of life barriers during their journeys and family life transitions. 

 

Some of the people we served needed a helping hand, a kind heart, a listening ear, a stern rebuke in thinking, just  someone to help them think through their crisis. Some needed loving arms to hold them and their children together because of their fear, trauma, grief or abuses and we help by walking through it with them to get their lives stabilized.

Planning the day of service with Home Depot

Since 2000, we’ve been supporting our community providing things like paying for bonds,  paying for storage so families can have a place to store belongings during their transitions and do not have to start all over.  We call apartments for second chances advocate for reduced eviction repayment plants, we call apartments and refer or bring therapist into our programs when those needs are identified. 

 

We help stressed parents think through their situations and help them to make a plan which would move their  family from  a sofa in a friends home to an apartment of their own,  from a hotel to more permanent or shared housing long term. 

We help keep families in place over the holidays through our financial commitments in rent drops which keeps the children stable during the school year. 

 

We guide parents to mentally shifting their mindsets towards resilient solutions where they can began to make their and their children's dreams a reality again.  Assist in getting moms and dads out of jails who are held on mostly traffic violations or other accusations which are not related to violence but, parents are lingering because they can't make minimal bails to get back home to their children sometimes placing them into a path of the system removing biological parental rights for good.

 

We provide people with life barriers support to become business owners or independent contract workers. We shift workers into bosses who contract back sometimes to the same business.  Life changes and we help people change their lives when they feel like life has them stuck.
