Our mission at AHEART is to provide emergency assistance to infants in crisis, prevent out of home placement, decrease infant mortality by providing essential infant items, and partnering with community members and organizations to advocate for the lives of infants and their families.
AHEART is open to families with infants and children under age 2 that are in serious need. Participants must bring in their child and a referral to receive assistance. We provide educational classes on a variety of topics because our aim is to build our participants up and not just be a family service agency that gives "hand outs".
AHEART’s main focus is to mentor and support teen mothers. Often these young girls find themselves homeless and in desperate need of daily support. Many times infants fall subject to government welfare programs due to long waiting lists, waiting periods between birth and assistance, and the lack of basic baby supplies.
