Heartland Alliance advances the human rights and responds to the human needs of endangered populations—particularly the poor, the isolated, and the displaced—through the provision of comprehensive and respectful services and the promotion of permanent solutions leading to a more just global society.

Heartland Alliance’s dedicated staff of more than 1,000 is made up of case managers, educators, health professionals, lawyers, housing developers, and project managers, ensuring we’re able to meet the needs of all their participants, regardless of circumstance. They are joined by an exceptional and dedicated volunteer corps of nearly 1,300, who donated 155,000 hours worth of their time and talent in 2013.

Together, their unique approach also yields unique impact. As a result of our work in 2013:

  • 1,022,927 lives improved.
  • 15,756 men, women, and children throughout the Midwest found a safe place to call home.
