A Fresh Start

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.

Schwindt Foundation
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.

Day Center
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.

We provide:

  • Structured case management
  • Mail distribution and use as a stable address, vital for engaging with
    government agencies and potential employers.

Opportunities 

Volunteering

How do you pass the time when you have too much of it? What are some healthy ways to use your time that you could share with someone? There are so many blessings we take for granted every day that we can share with our less fortunate neighbors. Examples of these are music, conversations, Scripture, board games, and more.

Learn to do it yours self workshops

Anyone can learn new skills, bit it’s easier if you have someone to serve as an instructor.  One of the biggest ways to save money through the years is to “do it ourselves.”  We offer hands on workshops. In the following areas.  There is a wonderful sense of accomplishment and empowerment that comes from knowing that you can do things like this for yourself. That feeling grows with each new skill you master.

    Faith Family Hospitality (FFH)

    We provide backpacks, school supplies, and clothes to help homeless children who are starting or going back to school. The Servant’s Heart, Corp. also holds photo sessions for their families as pictures aren’t something they can afford, not even school pictures. We make sure they have school pictures and family pictures.

    Every child deserves to be happy on Christmas day. That is why our organization hosts a Christmas drive, Christmas party, and a visit from Santa for homeless kids to make them feel the holiday cheer.
