Improve the lives of children, youth and families facing significant health challenges or social isolation.
One Heartland is a 501(c)(3) organization that funds programs for children who are homeless, living with or affected by HIV/AIDS, those seeking a healthier lifestyle, and youth who identify as LGBT. In all, One Heartland provides 10 weeks of camp to hundreds of campers every summer; of which more than 75% live below the poverty level.
Camp Heartland is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for people of all ages. It is a place of hope; of love that knows no race, religion or age; of acceptance for who one is and what one's goals are; and most importantly of support and guidance through the good and bad times of one's life. I have never met a group of people more dedicated to the idea of hope, nor to each other, than I have met at Camp Heartland. It is a place that attracts people who have a positive attitude about life, who bring out the best in one another and most importantly, who show love for one another.
