Make a difference in the Life of a teen

There are no words to describe the surprise and joy on one teen’s face when he walked into our storefront and saw the brand new cruiser bike waiting for him this holiday; perhaps the best part, though, was how excited he was to have a way to get himself—and thanks to the brilliant donation of a pet trailer, his beloved dog Luna—around without needing to rely on anyone else. This is the magic of Howard’s Heart, and it’s a magic that you helped create.

Please consider opening your heart for Howard’s Heart by making a donation!

Please consider opening your heart for Howard’s Heart by making a donation! While we know a large gift may not be possible for everyone, every size gift helps:

  • A monthly pledge of $5 provides internet for our office at Lloyd Center.
  • $30 each month keeps the Essentials boxes fully stocked.
  • A one-time donation of $600 can send a teen to summer camp!

If you have any questions about how your donation will be used, please don’t hesitate to reach out. We are so very grateful to have your support!

We also accept checks for donations! Please make out all checks to Howard’s Heart and mail to the following address:

Howard’s Heart

There are two ways to donate items to Howard’s Heart:

  • Special Requests are the primary way we support our teens, every day of the year. We receive and fulfill Special Requests every week. Follow us on Facebook to see current special requests!
  • Essentials Boxes are there when teens first arrive in care or transition from one placement to another. Since there are new arrivals all the time we always need donations to keep these boxes filled! Contact us to hold a drive!

We’re always looking for volunteers and partnerships! We’re seeking:

  • Inventory sorting and cataloging in our store front.
  • Keep donations flowing with pick ups and drop offs.
  • Help us share our mission at an event booth or table.

There are many more opportunities to help!
