Have A Heart Mission:

The purpose of Have A Heart is to provide direct relief to East End residents in times of individual and/or family crisis. A request for "emergency" funding, from either one of our partner organizations, the individual/family seeking assistance or an interested third party, is made to Have A Heart in the form of a Grant Request Application (GRA). If the GRA is approved by the Board of Trustees, the funds are either sent to the requesting partner organization (which has certified the legitimacy of the request) and sent to the individual/family or if the request is by the individual or an interested third party, then an area partner organization with a relationship with Have A Heart is identified and that organization affirms the need and receives the funds from Have A Heart and sends it to the needy party.
