Inspiring healing and growth through education
Heart to Heart
Life-changing education for people affected by incarceration and trauma.
Heart to Heart seeks to empower incarcerated people, those at risk of incarceration or who were incarcerated, families, communities, and others seeking freedom from destructive habits and patterns, both inside and outside of correctional facilities. Our programs serve individuals in Boston, Southern New Jersey, Philadelphia, and Baltimore.
Professional facilitators with extensive training in Nonviolent Communication, and meditation teach Heart to Heart classes in a number of locations.
Heart to Heart helps parents, caregivers and educators who are called to be a healing presence in their families and communities raise thriving children.
Schools & Communities
Heart to Heart operates in Southern New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Massachusetts, offering a variety of workshops, classes, and retreats.
What We Do
Heart to Heart empowers men and women to live free and fruitful lives in correctional facilities and in other community settings. Our work builds on Dr. Marshall Rosenberg’s Nonviolent Communication and other sources. Strongly influenced by Gandhi, Dr. Rosenberg’s approach offers a powerful framework for understanding ourselves, empathizing with other people, and communicating in a way that acknowledges and cares about everyone’s needs.
Take one or more of our workshops to grow the skills needed to do our work. Then help spread the knowledge in your own community/focus groups. Assist in connecting people and organizations to Heart to Heart’s educational programs.
Help with fundraising events, community research, and community outreach (may involve cold calling returning citizens and/or caregivers of children who have an incarcerated family member in communities in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Massachusetts, and Maryland/DC).
Team members are needed to go into the Boston pre-release center weekly (or less) in Roslindale to listen, learn and grow in the community through our educational programs.
