Our Mission

Responding to the needs of families and youth in our community.

Our Vision

To offer quality programmes and services that recognize the community's strengths, diversity, and needs.

Our Motto

“Be the Best You can Be”

Working together to build stronger communities

At Heart Beatz, community is not just a word, it’s something we see come to life every day in the diverse and inclusive programmes we offer.

We see it in the strong bonds that form between the youth and staff in our after-school and summer programmes. We see it in the care that our early childhood educators take to connect with children through play. In the nutritious meals created in our community kitchens. In the connections formed in our EarlyON Child and Family Centres.

We know that the route to a deeper connection is caring people coming together every day with a common purpose. We’ve been active in our community for over 40 years and we are proud to continue to offer a foundation to help it grow and thrive.
