Professional with expertise in this field

Rating: 5

I worked with HFS for more than a year and still hold them in the highest regard. As an agency, HFS is dedicated to helping people in times of need without judgement. My program location had extremely dedicated professionals who did everything in their power to help our clients. As an employer, HFS prioritizes professional development, training on trauma-informed best practices, and well-rounded support for employees.


Client Served

Rating: 1

As an honorably discharged service-connected decorated disabled African American female veteran of the United States Air Force and a non-paid registered lobbyist with both Houses of the United States Congress, having successfully lobbied on behalf of the military and veterans community of the U S Armed Forces, as well as the President of a national veterans service association/organization, having recently sought the services of Heartland Family Service; I can say beyond any reasonable doubt, that Heartland and its staff, which purports to give veterans first priority in rental housing and utility assistance, in addition to being a racially-discriminatory organization - is a scam agency, extraordinaire, despite receiving tens of millions of dollars, each year in both federal, state and private funding and financial assistance.
