Hearth's Strategic Plan: 2010 - 2014
Hearth is a non-profit organization dedicated to the elimination of homelessness among the elderly. This mission is
accomplished through a unique blend of prevention, placement, and housing programs all designed to help elders find and
succeed in homes of their own. To this end, all housing operated by Hearth provides a creative array of supportive services
that assist residents to age with dignity, regardless of their special medical, mental health, or social needs. Hearth
believes these goals are best accomplished through respect for elders and staff, with the desire to see both achieve their
highest degree of potential.
