Who We Are

 Heartbeat's mission is to strengthen and support families by providing educational and supportive programs and events. Heartbeat believes it is essential to provide innovative programs to meet the needs of our community. It is important to remain independent to be able to be flexible and change strategies as the needs of the community change. Heartbeat's philosophy is that of collaboration and partnering with others. Sharing resources and expertise maximizes resources and is cost effective. What makes our group different than others is, some of our current Board members are alumni of the foster care system and committed to supporting children in care. Youth play an important part in our efforts, our elders strive to teach the next generation the importance of community and helping one another. This is what we call our "Legacy of Caring" and strive to teach our youth this tradition of serving others.
