Since its inception, Heartland Community Action has been dedicated to helping people help themselves and each other. With a mission of "Building stronger communities by providing opportunities that empower people in need" across the heart of Minnesota, Heartland Community Action has a 40 year history of delivering community-based services for low-income families. Heartland Community Action provides services to meet their basic needs and move to greater self-sufficiency.
Heartland Community Action's Value Proposition:
Helping People. Changing Lives.
Heartland Community Action's Strategic Plan impacts the future and focuses on Family, Community, and Agency where:
- Education is a top priority for children, parents, and community leaders.
- Community leaders and members are engaged in advancing community well-being.
- Basic needs are transformed into opportunities that enhance quality of life.
Heartland provides services to households (families) that range from emergency/crisis prevention, education, family development, and asset building. Heartland Community Action strives to help at-risk populations, such as the elderly and children.
Heartland organizes and facilitates partnerships so its communities can be responsive to the needs of its poorest residents. Heartland Community Action partners with multiple sectors of the community to ensure families' needs are addressed.
Just as Heartland Community Action is keenly aware of the challenges our families face, Heartland Community Action recognizes its responsibility as an agency to strategically utilize resources (financial, culturally diverse staff, partnerships, etc.) to ensure that Heartland is able to assist its families and communities to their fullest potential, both now and in the future.
"All people have enough money, meaning and friends to thrive; all community members thrive, communities are fully engaged in ending poverty and the Agency is a respected, credible leader engaging the entire community."
