Reviews for Joshuas Heart Foundation Inc
I love working with Joshuas heart mainly because they teach other kids how to be charitable and I think that is great for humanity.
I first encountered Joshua's Heart foundation a few weeks after my daughter started middle school . We were going through the transition of a new school experience and almost immediately we were informed that the school was having an event to help families with food, uniforms, and school supplies! All I could say is wow what a wonderful new school ! My family was so surprised that at the event kids of all ages were packaging goodies , backpacks, and essentials for all of us families. Our school had the need and Joshua's Heart Foundation really provided more than food, they showed our students that they too could help make a difference ! My daughter joined Joshua's Heart Foundation ! I want to say Thank you to the dedicated volunteers and partners, who make Joshua's mission possible.
My son and I have been a volunteer with Joshua's Heart for over 4 years and as volunteers we have witnessed first hand the dedication and commitment that Joshua and team have put into this non profit foundation in giving back to his community and surrounding communities. It is an honor for my son and I to represent such a wonderful foundation that has put their heart and soul into caring and sharing with those who are in need.
What started out as supporting a golf tournament for Joshua's Heart sponsored by my company, CNLBank, has now affected and transformed my life and the lives of my children. Since my girls have become members of Joshua's Heart Board for 2015-2016, I am constantly amazed at the difference children can make in the lives of the less fortunate. Our involvement with Joshua's Heart has been a life altering experience for us, both individually and as a family, and on different levels. First, we no longer just "talk the talk", we are truly able to "walk the walk". My girls are participating in service to others, something they have always wanted to do and we have found the right organization for that. The meal packaging event allowed the girls to find and develop purpose and meaning to life at an early age. Additionally, they have a deeper appreciation of their lives. They also now feel there is more joy and blessing to give than to receive. The girls are eager to volunteer and cannot wait for the next event. As a parent and a volunteer all I can say is way to go Joshua and Joshua's Heart Foundation, keep doing the great work in the community and changing lives one family at a time.
Outstanding work by Joshua. I'm proud to see the young man he has become and the amazing things he has done and continues to do through the organization. Joshua is definitely a young man with a clear vision of what he wants to accomplish, compassion and perseverance as he continues to provide for the needs of the less fortunate.
Joshua lights up the room everywhere he goes. His commitment to his cause is contagious and the wold is a better place because of him, I know that I am.

I wish to thank the folks from JoshuasHeart Foundation for allowing me to volunteer at last Saturday's Share a Meal Event. For me, the experience was uplifting and humbling at the same time. It is clear JoshuasHeart demonstrates their genuine love for humanity. The energy and enthusiasm of the hard working staff, volunteers and sponsors helping to feed and assist those in need is contagious. This nonprofit has the compassion and empathy that makes a real difference in the lives of those less fortunate; character traits that are sorely lacking in our society. The world could learn a great lesson from these folks.
It was a wonderful experience volunteering with Joshua's Heart Share A Meal. I love how the children had an opportunity to get involved and give back to the community. Families received a Christmas grocery bag, wrapped gifts for the children, books, picture with Santa and we served the families dinner. I look forward to that awesome experience again. Seeing how pleased those families were was a blessing in itself. Our holiday spirit has been fulfilled through Joshua's Heart.
Joshua William's is a young man with compassion for helping other's beyond any young person I have ever met. His tenacity with Joshua's Heart Foundation to "Stomp out Hunger" is the drive and motivation for the foundation.
Joshuas's Heart Foundation ensures that the community in South Florida has food for their families. I have volunteered on several occasions and when I see the determination in Joshua's eyes giving food to the less fortunate brings me to tears. This is a young man with a Foundation that strives to take on "Stomping out Hunger" around the World. I pray to see the day when Joshua's Heart Foundation can receive an endowment to feed more people around the World.

I started doing some charity events with Joshua's heart about 1.5 years ago. I was trying to find a local charity that gave back to the community and I could be hands on with. I found them online and liked what I read about their vision. When doing the events you get to feel the gratefulness of the individuals and families receiving from Joshua's heart. I have met some wonderful people and children helping out here. They are the BEST charity I have ever worked by far! I am proud of the work Joshua's heart does in Miami and beyond. The kids who work side by side are pretty amazing. It's a joy to see so many young kids wanting to do good for others. Joshua and his vision are a great inspiration to me and reminds me what happens when you have love in your heart!
