PTHeart is short for our full name: Philanthropy from the Heart, Inc of Miami, Florida. Yes, we help homeless individuals with much needed nourishment, along with other services. But we do a lot more.
You see, being homeless cuts deep. When a person loses their home, they almost always feel helpless and hopeless. They lose all self-esteem. They even feel like they no longer belong to the human race.
This isn’t just some kind of mental illness or state brought on by substance abuse – although it sometime is. Homelessness comes to millions of Americans every year. The homelesss come from all backgrounds. Some have college educations and once held good jobs.
But a lengthy illness, divorce, a lost job – any of these things, or a combination of factors can quickly make any one of us homeless.
It’s a real shame that homelessness exists today in our proud, well-developed, highly advanced country. In a nation with so much wealth, giving just a small sum to help good folks get back on their feet is so little to ask. That’s our mission, it’s our passion, but we can’t do it without you.
Charitable organizations like PTHeart are desperately needed to step up and fill wide gaps in the so-called safety net.
And because homelessness and poverty are inextricably linked, we are working hard to do everything we can to ease poverty. In the past few years there has been a sharp increase in the percentage of American’s who live at or below the poverty line. These people, of which many are families, have too little to eat for many days of the month. Some can’t afford new clothes so their children have basic dignity at school. Parents are challenged with various barriers to applying for jobs or succeeding at the jobs that they already have.
PTHeart frequently organizes events to not only help homeless individuals, but also to bring awareness to the wider community. Singers, bands, and other artists gather to help us raise more funds to feed and clothe the homeless and hungry.
