The H.E.A.R.T. Program seeks donations to help acquire a minivan to help transport participants of H.E.A.R.T. from home to training sessions and jobs.

Without H.E.A.R.T.'s transportation program, they will be unable to travel to their jobs.

The Glenda Jean Mostyn and Joe E. Moreno Educational Foundation has awarded a matching grant valued at $5,000 to the H.E.A.R.T Program of Houston, Texas. The grant will match every donation the HEART Program receives toward their “Give These HEARTs a Ride” campaign from April 2, 2014 to May 29, 2014.

The “Give These HEARTs a Ride” campaign is seeking donations to help the H.E.A.R.T. Program acquire a 2014 KIA Sedona LX minivan. This vehicle will be used to help transport participants of H.E.A.R.T. from home to training sessions and jobs. Many of the members have jobs, receiving minimum wage or above at Houston’s BBVA Compass Stadium, where the H.E.A.R.T. Program has been the exclusive vendor of Papa John’s Pizza since 2012. Transportation is vital to the success of our programs and helping adults with mental disabilities achieve their full success.

“Right now, H.E.A.R.T.'s fleet is limited and unable to transport the many people who desire this service”, says Jane Cummins, founder and executive director of the H.E.A.R.T. Program, “The H.E.A.R.T. trainees are adults, but they are unable to drive due to their disabilities. Many of them are also not able to ride the bus independently. Without H.E.A.R.T.'s transportation program, they will be unable to travel to their jobs.”

The H.E.A.R.T. Program has drivers on standby ready to launch this next level of their transportation program and trainees ready to ride! All that is needed...a minivan to take them there!
