The majority of individuals with I/DD are on a fixed income far below the federal poverty level. Cuts to federally funded programs during economic recessions, the pandemic, wildfires, and the serious lack of affordable housing in California have deepened the negative impacts to this already vulnerable population. HeartRight Foundation helps to mitigate those negative impacts by providing funding for household needs, moving expenses, accessibility modifications to existing housing, travel, recreation, hobby enrichment, medical/dental care and medical equipment not funded by MediCal such as corrective shoes, hearing aids, and speech devices. We rely exclusively on donations from the community to support the population served and because our board members are volunteers and our administrative costs are paid through other revenue streams, nearly 100% of all money donated by the community goes directly to the assistance of the I/DD individuals we serve. Donations to HeartRight Foundation ensure these individuals are able to continue to live the healthiest, most independent and fulfilled lives possible.
