Nonprofit Overview

Mission: As a faith-based organization, My Joyful Heart endeavors to be a positive influence to children in need by remembering them with basic life essentials, school supplies, clothing, toys and encouragement throughout each year until their situation improves or they move from the area. My Joyful Heart provides the little things that may often be missing in the life of a child in need. By providing these gifts regularly throughout the year we extend love and hope to these children, making them feel special and letting them know that people do care.

In 2013, we hope to increase the number of children served to over 600. We can do this with your help! Please help us Bring Hope.

I was a teacher at a school where the students received "Gift Bags" from My Joyful Heart. The students couldnot wait to receive their items. Diane Carroll and her volunteers work tirelessly to make sure the needs of all the students are met. She is really making a diffeence in the lives of these students. My Joyful Heart is an Amazing Organization! I am proud to be a part of it. Barb M.

I'm a school social worker at a local school. Our students come from 4 different and diverse communities, 85% of our students come from poverty. My Joyful Heart has been involved with our students for several years. Each year, Diane Carroll reaches out and takes on more of our students. My Joyful Heart represent true joyful hearts when our students receive their " gift bags". But it's not just about the gifts My Joyful Heart provides to our students, it's about the love they feel knowing that people in our communities care about them. My Joyful Heart is an amazing agency!
