The Servant’s Heart Corporation
Is a community outreach to individuals, families, and Veterans struggling with homelessness and facing a range of obstacles. The goal of our work is to help each individual reach their full potential. Our approach is to meet each person where they are and support them as they work toward a life of stability, productivity, meaning, hope, and self-sufficiency.
Many individuals need short-term stabilization before they can find housing that will meet their long-term needs. That’s why Schwindt Foundation, will provide up to12- months of housing at an affordable rate to homeless individuals looking to obtain self-sufficiency.
We encourage and hold each person accountable as they strive to address and overcome the issues that they face. An individual does not become homeless overnight. They do not go from having a home, job, and family to living on the street in an instant. Their life unravels over time. It takes time to stitch that life back together. Everyone must be ready and willing to do the hard work (reflection, healing, and focus) to step back to a life of stability, productivity, meaning and hope. The Schwindt Foundation Center supports them on that journey, providing guidance, tools, encouragement, and love.
The Day Program is well-structured and welcomes guests into the Center each day to meet their immediate needs while providing case management and other support. The Program is designed to support homeless individuals on their journey through homelessness, in keeping with our mission of Meeting Needs… Reclaiming Self-Sufficiency.
