Heartland Alliance, one of the world’s leading anti-poverty organizations, works in communities in the U.S. and abroad to serve those who are homeless, living in poverty, or seeking safety. At Heartland Alliance, we believe everyone in society benefits when people who experience disparities are able to exit poverty, heal from trauma, achieve stability, secure their rights, and shape policies that respond to their needs. Our 129 years of work in safety, health, housing, education, economic opportunity, and justice are foundational to achieving a more just global society.
Heartland Alliance provides effective, responsive primary, oral and behavioral healthcare services in our health centers, and we go outside our health center doors, bringing healthcare to those who need it most – on the streets, in shelters, in our grocery centers and in our own housing facilities. Our HIV/AIDS programs have been connecting participants to nutritious food and counseling services as well as oral and other health services for decades.
Please consider supporting our mission by making a donation, or even better, sign up to join as part of our team. If you can't make the event on the day (October 1), there is a new option this year to register as a 'virtual' team member, and still raise crucial funds for us.
