The Heartland Family Service “So Everyone Can: Visions of Our Community” campaign brings awareness to our community through the visions of local artists who have painted their story of how a world without obstacles might look. Heartland Family Service is working toward this community of opportunity every day, and we’re so excited to share this vision with our community. So everyone can.

While Heartland Family Service aims for this community of opportunity, using it to guide our plans and actions, we know that there will always be someone in need, and those needs are always evolving.

Our work, both on the individual and systemic level, is never done.

That’s why we are inviting our entire community to share this vision — because a world where everyone can needs everyone’s unflinching support. Our client base is not lacking. Our staff is skilled and ready. Now, you can help us expand possibilities.

At Heartland Family Service, we help many people walk many paths. But our network of services, programs, advocacy and support share a common goal: breaking cycles of barriers. 

So everyone can.


Can what?
Can anything.

The question isn’t answered by us.

We’re here to open up a world of opportunity for each person we serve. It’s their statement to finish, we just provide the resources and guidance to complete it.

Our clients come to us with a need, and we guide them in addressing it.

Our services fall under three, trauma-informed categories:

Each program under these categories builds a stable foundation for those we serve so they can push past obstacles and find success, whatever that may mean to them.

Many of these obstacles are not self-imposed.
They are a failing of our system.

That’s why, in addition to resolving barriers in people’s lives, we work to eliminate the cause for good.

To increase the effectiveness of Heartland Family Service, ensure our future sustainability and support the systemic changes needed to truly meet our mission, our Advocacy Taskforce proactively and strategically educates government decision-makers. The Taskforce makes sure they hear and understand the needs of the people and communities we serve, and that they support our efforts to make positive, lasting change.
