Our Causes

We all have a mom, dad, grandparent, family member or close friend that needs help as they age. Hart Felt Ministries vision is a community where frail seniors no longer fear where and how they age. Using a network of community volunteers, Hart Felt provides the following services: friendly visits, grocery shopping, transportation to appointments, light housekeeping and laundry, telephone reassurance, respite care, yard work, minor home repairs, and wheelchair ramps.

Did you know that 38,000 of Jacksonville seniors live alone on less than $18,000 a year? Many of them don’t have support networks and therefore have needs that go unanswered. Hart Felt Ministries responds to these calls of desperation and helps nearly 550 seniors a year.

  2. Wheelchair Ramp Construction

    Help build a quality wooden wheelchair ramp for someone who cannot leave their home due to steps that they can no longer maneuver after a fall, amputation, or chronic pain. We provide the volunteers and a licensed contractor to draw the plans and oversee the project and YOU help by paying for the lumber and hardware.

  3. Food Gift Card

    Did you know that 38,000 seniors in Jacksonville live off of less than $18,000 a year?

We also provide the volunteer who will shop for the client when they can't get to the grocery store by themselves.

    $1,000.00 donated of $10,000.00 goal
  5. The Hart Felt Veterinary Fund

    The Hart Felt Ministries Veterinary Fund helps buy food and help pay vet expenses for our clients, most of whom live below the poverty line. Pets are great source of companionship and offers health benefits as well – from serving as a stress relief to promoting physical activity and encouraging routines for seniors. Your $100.00 donation will allow us to make sure that a mobile vet can provide shots and other needed medical services to both service animals and companions of our seniors. The donation can also provide for a mobile groomer to provide much needed services to our disabled seniors' pets.
    $1,810.00 donated of $2,000.00 goal
  6. Sponsor a Hart Felt Volunteer

    It takes about $200.00 per volunteer to recruit, train, provide training materials, and provide ongoing retention assistance. What a small price to pay for volunteers who contribute up to 52 hours each (1 hour per week) during a year - that's equivalent to approximately $1,151.28 per volunteer in return per year!
    $1,900.00 donated of $5,000.00 goal
  7. The Hart Fund

    The Hart Fund was established in 2015 to meet the growing need in the community to provide minor home repairs and emergency assistance to our clients. The Fund was launched by a generous gift from the Jim Moran Foundation. Through your generous donations, Hart Felt Ministries is able to help Jacksonville seniors stay independent and age gracefully in their own homes. We utilize donations made to the Hart Fund for emergency financial assistance, minor home repairs, provide gift cards for groceries and other essential services.
