“35 For I was hungry, and you fed me. I was thirsty, and you gave me a drink. I was a stranger, and you invited me into your home. 36 I was naked, and you gave me clothing. I was sick, and you cared for me. I was in prison, and you visited me.” (Matthew 25:35-36)
Philanthropy From The Heart lives by this creed. Within our prosperous area, there are individuals who live in extreme poverty, unable to afford life’s basic necessities. PTHeart exists to serve the less fortunate, and focuses on providing services to the homeless population of Broward and Miami-Dade counties. We know how it feels to wake up with no place to go, feeling as if no one cares, and wondering where your next meal will come from. We strive to serve these individuals, letting them know they are not forgotten, and empowering them to make positive changes.
Philanthropy from the Heart, Inc. was established in May 2013 as a nonprofit organization in the state of Florida. PTHeart is a 501©(3) tax-exempt organization approved by the IRS. The company is managed by a Board of Directors and exists to assist the homeless living in and around the Miami and Broward area. Our Board of Directors work together to show disadvantaged members of our community that everything is possible!
By serving the needy, we are serving our Lord.
Goals and Objectives
The ultimate goal of PTHeart is to ease the suffering of the less fortunate, particularly the homeless, in Miami-Dade and Broward County, FL.
In the last decade, there has been an incredible increase in the number of families and individuals who live at or below the poverty line. Philanthropy from the Heart works to counter this trend, not only by providing necessary meals and clothing to those in need, but by offering one-on-one mentoring to ensure each individual has the professional decorum to obtain employment and give back to society in their own way.
When a person becomes homeless, it affects every aspect of their life. They feel helpless, hopeless, and powerless. The impact goes far beyond their health and self-esteem; it begins affecting their ability to provide for their family and build for their future. Homelessness and poverty are inextricably linked. People who are poor are frequently unable to pay for housing, food, childcare, health care, and education. Homeless is a complex issue with no “one-size-fits-all” reason, or solution. There are many reasons why a person can become homeless. And every individual’s situation is unique.
PTHeart offers several services for the homeless population of Miami-Dade.
Our three goals nourish the three important facets of an individual: Body, Mind and Soul.
- Provide nutritious meals.
- Provide assistance and skill development to empower individuals to become self-sustaining, contributing members of society.
- Provide HOPE.
By providing nutritious meals, we can nourish the body. Our assistance and support services help individuals nourish their mindset, set goals for themselves, and get back on the path toward a self-sustaining life. Our most important service, however, is offering hope. We give hope by showing those we serve that everything in life is possible, and they can once again become productive members of society. Our success depends on our attention to the needs of the individuals we serve, and a sharp focus on truly helping those who need it most.
The main goal of our program is to promote stewardship of personal assets, and to help individuals develop the skills that will help them succeed personally, socially, occupationally and financially.
We focus on developing the following:
- Respect & Morals
- Faith & Compassion
- Building Self-Esteem
- Responsibility & Integrity
- Organization & motivation
- Common courtesy
We offer education, workshops, children and family services, and job and leadership training, enabling our clients to develop these skills.
Our goal is to provide one-on-one mentoring to ensure each individual has the professional decorum to obtain employment and to give back to the society.
