Last year, HSVS pledged that it would have 100 enrolled scholars by 2020. Many of our scholars attend SUNY and CUNY schools, so with the Excelsior Scholarship, HSVS will be able to exceed that goal.
Since its founding in 1914, HeartShare and its Family of Services has expanded to over 100 program sites in Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island and extends to 60 of the 62 New York counties through energy grants. HeartShare’s responsiveness to the needs of the New York community guides its innovation. When the community needed special education classrooms, HeartShare opened a school for children with autism. When young adults aging out of foster care needed a safety net, HeartShare St. Vincent’s Services created the American Dream Program to help youth achieve their college and career dreams.
