Testimony From our Clients

Learn About the Critical Difference that Donors Make 

You opened the doors that they had hoped for but had not been able to act on due to financial barriers. Perhaps even more powerful, however, has been Heart’s Desire’s role in acknowledging the efforts of these women and serving as a vote of confidence in them as individuals...For many of my clients this act of support and investment in their future goes much further than any dollar amount and has not been shown to them in many areas of their lives.

Before enrolling in Nurse-Family Partnership, Cindy was homeless and working 2 jobs. She started her day at 11 pm as a dispatcher in Queens. She went from there to work at a daycare center in the Bronx where she slept on the floor after work until her night shift started again. Cindy's nurse Joanne helped her get into a shelter. Joanne also recognized early on that Cindy's child Caleb was on the autism spectrum and obtained essential services for him. She also helped Cindy overcome a bout of depression.

A Heart's Desire tuition award subsequently enabled Cindy pay for certification to become licensed to run the daycare center that she now operates. Cindy created this amazing video to thank her nurse.
