Heart Haven OutReach (H2O) needs to raise $20,000 to purchase a 12 passenger van to give free transportation to more local youth in need of support and mentoring.

This past year, H2O’s programming has expanded into five middle schools. Since the number of students coming to our support groups has doubled, often the demand for our mentoring programs exceeds our current van capacity. We feel terrible having to turn students away, as lack of transportation can be a barrier for our students and their families to access our support programming. This transportation is offered at no cost to our students. Rides are available to teens living in Bolingbrook and Romeoville. Additionally, with this new van we will be able to offer existing programming to Plainfield East students and continue to expand middle school outreach.

For over 15 years H2O has transformed the lives of over 3,000 local students through caring relationships and programs that support healthy development on an emotional, physical, mental, and spiritual level. Please help us continue to reach out to the hearts of these youth!

Your contribution will make a difference. Donate to H2O online today!

So Much More Than an After School Program

H2O youth are empowered through a variety of research based programming including Support Groups, Life Skills & Character Education, Recreational Activities and Field Trips, Service Opportunities, Mentoring, Tutoring, as well as Focus groups ran inside the Valley View School District 365U Middle and High Schools.


These programs offer a balanced approach to meet the Emotional, Physical, Intellectual, Social, and Spiritual needs of our youth.
