The H.E.A.R.T. Program (Housing, Entrepreneurship And Readiness Training) was founded to create new opportunities for adults with developmental disabilities achieve their potential. H.E.A.R.T. ‘s philosophy is that everyone deserves the opportunity to excel and experience the sense of pride and accomplishment that is achieved through education and employment.
The H.E.A.R.T. Program embraces its mission to promote structured independence for individuals with developmental disabilities by providing innovative education, training, housing, and employment programs.
The H.E.A.R.T. Program has a philosophy of life-long learning. It is not believed that education should end because individuals have aged out of the school system.
