Description


Heartland Alliance for Human Needs & Human Rights helps people living in poverty or danger improve their lives and realize their human rights. From a refugee fleeing violence and torture to a resident of public housing trying to escape the cycle of poverty, Heartland Alliance helps people in the toughest of circumstances—who often have no place else to go. We bring a human rights perspective to our work. We believe human rights are both about issues abroad as well as issues in our own backyard—including freedom from poverty, access to health care, a roof over your head, and fair treatment in the justice system. For more than 100 years, Heartland Alliance has provided hope, opportunity, and solutions—through both services and advocacy. Our work spans across four key areas, creating paths from crisis to stability and on to success: Housing We build and advocate for safe, high-quality housing and supportive services for people experiencing homelessness, poverty, or chronic illness. Health Care We work to ensure comprehensive health care—medical, dental, mental health, and substance use treatment-- is fully available to people experiencing poverty or trauma. Economic Security We help people threatened by poverty build the skills and gain the tools to improve their well-being and enjoy the success of reaching their goals. Legal Protection We provide legal protection for people in danger, including refugees, migrants, victims of trafficking and other vulnerable populations facing discrimination or violence. Heartland Alliance for Human Needs & Human Rights is an independent, non-sectarian, non-profit organization serving more than 200,000 people annually. With relationships across the Midwest region, nation, and world, Heartland Alliance creates hope for a hurting world for hundreds of thousands of people. Invest in our efforts to assure human rights for all.
