The Heart of Humanity Foundation, a 501c non profit organization, educates, supports and empowers the people of our community to become an active participant in their own well being. We offer classes, workshops, events and referrals that aid in building skills to sustain a healthy body, mind and spirit.
Heart of Humanity Foundation offers a range of seminars and programs to the general public and health care professionals.
We believe that health is a response to your lifestyle. Your genetics, emotions, life events, accidents and traumas all have the ability to create an imbalance in your health. Achieving health goals is a process and a journey.
As trained health practitioners, our intention is to identify the healing strength of your body and recommend steps to improve the quality of your life.
We provide hope and healing through support, education, advocacy and treatment.
Providing culturally congruent care can increase a sense of well being, reduce suffering and decrease morbidity among indigenous people, thus decreasing disparities in health care.
Heart of Humanity Foundation has a 20-year history of supporting and helping clients find alternative medicine and spiritual holistic healing.
