The HH Story
Twenty Shoeboxes and Orange Carnations
May 2020. Worldwide Pandemic. The burning desire to help other women couldn't wait any longer. A pandemic was no longer going to stop Hagar's Heart. So a post on Facebook and many women, filled the desire to help others. We had created this idea of an I SEE YOU box: a shoebox filled with luxury items for women in domestic violence shelters and flowers for children to give to their moms. A local catering company prepared a special brunch too.
On Saturday, May 9th, 2020, 20 shoeboxes, a handful of orange carnations, and a brunch for 16 women, was delivered to a local domestic violence shelter.
Two weeks later, the nonprofit 501(c)3 became HAGAR'S HEART.
We've grown from 20 unlabeled shoeboxes, to serving 4 domestic violence organizations (7 shelters) across the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex, in multiple ways. We've provided bikes, car seats, strollers, and meals, all so that women can take care of themselves.
The vision of Hagar's Heart is to become the GO-TO nonprofit for Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex women's shelters, providing self-care support for women. When women are in need of more than the necessities: tools to help women rediscover they are seen, valued, and loved, Hagar's Heart works to provide these things.
