Compassionate Heart Ministry receives more than 50% of its support from individuals. We do not receive any state or federal funds. Your generosity allows us to reach young people with disabilities and their families to provide social opportunities. We all need and want to feel accepted, included, valued, and loved. This is and will continue to be our goal. With your help, we will continue to provide an inclusive mentoring program, encourage spiritual growth, offer social and community experiences, and support our Compassionate Heart families.
