Mission
To improve the lives of children, youth and families facing significant health challenges or social isolation.
 
Goals
Since 1993, One Heartland has been creating life-changing camp experiences for youth facing social isolation, intolerance or serious health challenges. Our camps provide a welcoming, bully-free environment where children, youth and young adults can feel completely accepted for who they are—often for the first time in their lives. We serve youth infected or affected by HIV/AIDS, youth identifying as LGBT, youth facing homelessness and living in transitional housing, and youth working to achieve a healthy lifestyle.
 
The physical and emotional safety of our campers is our highest priority, so we provide one counselor for every two campers. One Heartland also offers hands-on learning and life-skills training—not in the classroom, but while planting vegetables, performing skits, swimming in the pool, painting murals, exploring the wilderness, writing poetry, dancing up a storm and lying under the star-lit sky.
 
At One Heartland, young people develop self-acceptance, life-long friendships and the courage to face the world.
 
Volunteer Opportunities
One Heartland offers service-learning opportunities such as maintaining trails and painting cabins to ASB (Alternative Spring Break) groups, high school students, and corporations. Volunteers also help out at our events, transport donations to camp, and more. Contact helpkids@oneheartland.org for more information.
 
Fundraising Events
Holiday in the Heartland gala, December 11-12 at the Dakota Jazz Club in Downtown Minneapolis, as well as smaller events throughout the year.
