Heart Ventures collaborates with United Boys & Girls Club of Santa Barbara, Direct Relief & the Santa Barbara Music & Arts Conservatory. Educating people & raising the level of awareness of equality & wholeness as human beings is core. Teaching people they are whole human beings, beautiful creations, with full & equal universal human rights is essential. Then we empower them with the ability to take control of their own lives, guiding academically & vocationally into a career of self-sustenance & quality of life. Evidence of a broken society is when people strike out in theft, crime, turn to drugs & alcohol & are taken advantage of by dealers, pimps, crime lords & traffickers.
Our fight is against this poverty, lack of education, & the roots of this broken culture, embedded in the social fabric of impoverished & oppressed people. We must start by embracing the broken souls of our sisters & brothers & break this cycle of victims of human rights violations. We focus on celebrating freedom, sharing the keys to our success in combating human rights violations & leading young people to freedom & independence with practical & effective programs! Our collaboration provides services to people below the poverty line in the USA & globally.
