2016 Heartland Alliance Annual Report
July 2015-June 2016
At Heartland Alliance, these are more than mere words. We believe that everyone in our society benefits when people are able to exit poverty, heal from trauma, and achieve stability; secure their rights; and shape policies that respond to their needs. We recognize that persistent disparities – in safety, health, housing, education, economic opportunity, and justice – keep millions of people throughout the country and across the world from participating, prospering, and reaching their full potential.
Every day, Heartland Alliance addresses these disparities through direct service, research, and policy change. Thanks to our public and private investors, our community-based partners, and many volunteers, we have directly helped 400,000 individuals and impacted the lives of more than 7 million people worldwide in 2016. On the following pages, you will see just a glimpse of the positive impact Heartland Alliance has had on the lives of so many individuals.
Despite these successes, violence is getting in the way. It is disrupting lives, getting in the way of reaching our full potential as a society, and hurting all of us. Heartland Alliance remains as committed as ever to drawing on our deep expertise in healing and justice to address pervasive violence so that we can move more fully toward equity and opportunity for all.
To achieve that vision, we need partners and advocates whose sights are set beyond the nearest horizon. We need investors who embrace experimentation to produce better outcomes. We need dreamers, analysts, thought leaders, and practitioners working side by side to imagine and implement new policies and programs that effect lasting change.
WE NEED YOU. ALL IN.
