Where We Came From

 

In 2002 a team of professionals with over 100 years of social services experience came together ( Foster Parents, Therapists, Social Workers). Driven by their passions to serve the community, dedication to keeping families together and supporting children in out of home care, they created Heartbeat. This Heartbeat team works to develop programs with the sole purpose to support and strengthen families. Heartbeat began by providing foster parents needed trainings and being available for consultation and support. In 2006 Heartbeat formally became a non-profit and 2010 received its tax exempt status .  Then Heartbeat increased its community partners and began to provide cultural events for Native American foster children.
