TESTIMONIALS


Heather Mother

I knew that my son needed counseling. I also knew it would be a process, but I’m sure I would have been lost on how to even get started or who to go to if it had not been for His Heart Foundation and my friend who referred me to them. I know for certain the difference it has made having this entire process covered in prayer. I am positive and have hope, and I believe my son does, too.
