AN EDUCATION NON-PROFIT
Helping refugee kids
Heart House is an education non-profit that serves refugee children with a holistic after-school and summer program utilizing social emotional learning to help them thrive in their new community. We’re located in the same residential areas as the families we help, and offer a culturally sensitive approach to each child’s needs. In short, we’re a place that moves the most vulnerable kids from a state of chaos to a sense of calm.
