The goal of our organization is to serve our community with dedication, compassion, integrity, and love. Our mission is to not only provide support; but to also focus on creating avenues of prevention and sustainable solutions.
Hearts United for Good is committed to addressing and identifying gaps and needs within Mecklenburg County and its often overlooked and marginalized populations. We aim to offer the access and assistance necessary to ensure each and every human we encounter is given the tools and ability to succeed - regardless of educational, historical, financial, and societal barriers. HUG believes that ending stigmas and the perpetuity of failure and oppression through advocacy, understanding, and devotion is the foundation for effecting the greatest impact on the needs of our community.
Together we can build stronger communities and ignite hope by removing structural barriers that perpetuate poverty, and by providing guidance for healing the challenges of inter-generational trauma.
“I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”

It’s our mission and commitment to our community to be the conduit that allows those in need to access the available assistance offered through state, county, and city programs.
We accomplish this by providing supplies, resources, and direct support ranging from safe & dependable transportation, to employment and resume training, to groceries, clothing, personal care items, tents, tarps, sleeping bags, and so much more. Our targeted programs currently focus on Food Insecurity, Homeless and Housing, Animal Welfare, Veteran Assistance, Senior Care, LGBTQ+ and Trans Advocacy, with several other programs in immediate and constant development.
Hearts United for Good envisions creating a new perspective and approach to service; We believe that instead of requiring the people to adapt to the system, our society and social services should have the ability to assess and pivot - and begin enabling the system to adapt to the people.
It's through these contemplative and experienced assessments that we can start seeing the needs of our community in a new light; one that is bright enough to allow every human to be seen in the glow of love, potential, and equality.
