Welcome to Heartland Helpers!
As a schoolteacher, I have worked with 1000’s of students throughout my years of teaching. However, when one of my nephews was diagnosed on the Autism Spectrum, I wanted to do something to bring awareness to this special need. We began by doing fundraisers and donating to other special needs groups. Within a few years of doing these awareness activities one of our friends found out his son would be born with Down syndrome, so we expanded our activities. Add in a college roommate that has throughout all of this become a Special Education teacher and you have Heartland Helpers. As our non-profit grows, we will continue to strive to change and grow as the needs in our community continue to change! This includes adding members, so if you are interested please let us know!!
