Heartland Alliance Health
Heartland Alliance approaches health and healing holistically. They know that factors such as income, education level, physical environments, and social supports are deeply connected to a person’s health.

Their goal is not just to meet basic needs, but  to provide more than a roof over someone’s head, more than a single doctor’s visit.
