HeartShare Human Services Logo

The Boards of HeartShare Human Services of New York and St. Vincent’s Services, both located in Brooklyn, NY, have approved an affiliation of their respective agencies. St. Vincent’s Services will be known as HeartShare St. Vincent’s Services

With similar histories and strongly aligned programmatic goals, the two organizations will leverage shared expertise and resources to serve at-risk New Yorkers more effectively and more efficiently. We believe that this strategic affiliation will enhance the lives of the children, adults and families in our care.

Learn More About Our American Dream Program

The American Dream Program (ADP) helps foster care youth overcome their personal challenges and break through to success. The ADP supports the financial, emotional and employment needs of youth in foster care. With the combined strength of HeartShare and St. Vincent’s Services, we have relaunched the program with the goal of tripling the number of youth who will benefit over the next three years.
