Mission Statement

The mission of H.E.R.O. for Children is to improve the quality of life for children infected with and affected by HIV/AIDS through enriching programs, unforgettable experiences, and connections with the community.

Description

H.E.R.O. for Children is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life of children infected with or affected by HIV/AIDS.

We define 'Quality of Life' as the degree of physical, social, and emotional well-being an individual enjoys while being able to envision and attain unlimited future success and fulfillment. At H.E.R.O. for Children, Inc., quality of life programming seeks to achieve the following:

  • Bridge gaps, created by personal and societal factors related to being infected with or affected by HIV/AIDS, which can diminish a child's potential to succeed
  • Expand life exposure through a wide range of opportunities and events that allow children to experience the normal joys of childhood
  • Increase social, interpersonal, and academic skills so that children are able to accomplish age-appropriate milestones, compete with their peers, and perform normal tasks of living
  • Improve children's perceptions of their future prospects and overall life possibilities
  • Create opportunities that will increase children's ability to function effectively, despite being infected with or affected by HIV/AIDS, and become contributing members of society.

Would you recommend H.E.R.O. for Children, Inc.?

by Matia "Tia" W. (August 25, 2016)
It is a wonderful place with a great vision. I would come back to volunteer with the children rather than be in the office setting. I was looking to learn a bit more of the ins and outs of how a non profit operates and I still feel I could have gotten more. It was a friendly laid back environment. Working with the volunteer coordinator was just fine. Due to outside business, there were times I was not needed to come in.
