Salute to Families 2023

For almost 40 years, Heartland Family Service has been hosting this event to celebrate strong families and individuals in the community who place a high priority on building and strengthening their bonds, while encouraging individual growth and community involvement.

Join us at our Salute to Families event as we honor these families and family advocates.
