My Joyful Heart serves local children who live in impoverished areas. Every child enrolled in the My Joyful Heart program is disadvantaged in one way or another: some are in special education, some have families that cannot afford life's necessities, many are from single-parent or grandparent-led households and some are homeless.

Currently, My Joyful Heart provides over 3,700 Gift Packages to children ages 3 to 13-years old each year. While it brings joy to our hearts to help these children, there are still many more who could benefit from inclusion in our program.

You can help by sponsoring a child and investing in their future. Working together, we can make a difference in the lives of children who are struggling to overcome poverty.

Sponsoring a child is easy!

If you are renewing a sponsorship, you may skip to Step 3. There is no need to fill out another Enrollment Form.
