The Father's Heart Ministries provides services to the unemployed, at-risk youth, immigrants, and those without social or family support.
Our volunteers serve breakfast to 700+ guests, tutor kids and serve dinner at KidZone, and teach GED classes to adults.
Our funding supports the Hunger Prevention Program. Guests of the Father's Heart are served a hot all-you-can-eat breakfast on Saturday mornings, and can take home a pantry bag of food items for the week.
In 2014, Father's Heart participated in workshops on program effectiveness. After visiting other HFNY affiliates, they initiated a new check-in process that allows to track more information about their guests.
The Father's Heart literally is a light in the darkness, its neon sign symbolizing how God is at work in programs like KidZone. During my time there, I have seen His love touch the hearts of volunteers, comfort families, and fill children with laughter. All too often, I walk around with blinders, focused on my superficial problems, but KidZone pushes me to look beyond myself and find joy in helping others. It is a privilege to serve with the Father's Heart community, and I am very thankful to be a part of it.
