Heart House

About Heart House

Heart House is an afterschool nonprofit organization. We serve some of the most vulnerable in our community: refugee children. Most have experienced trauma beyond their years, coming from war-torn or poverty-stricken lands. At Heart House, we provide a safe place where these students can come to study after school and in the summer. Our holistic model meets kids where they are, taking into account their background and current emotional state. This social emotional learning approach has been proven to increase academic performance, improve mental health, and establish a pathway to success for each child—in school and in life.
