What is the HEART Organization?
We are a one of its kind, unique intervention program assisting youth 12-18 years of age in Will County who are in need of court ordered community service compliance. Our program has taken the formerly used methods of serving community service and transformed it into a life changing experience for youth at risk! Our program meets every Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday evening at the new Village of Bolingbrook Community Center. We teach and counsel our students in juvenile law and its consequences, social & life skills training and we offer anger management classes. Our program opened its doors in 1999 and to date has serviced over 1900 children in the Will County area. We are supported with in-kind donations from the Village of Bolingbrook, DuPage Township, public donations and private contributions. Our program works in unison with the local court system to help juveniles avoid convictions, regain focus, build confidence and gain respect for self, home and the community in which they live! Our main goal and mission is to:
“HELP KEEP THE CUFFS OFF KIDS”!
