SAN BERNARDINO, CA- Hearts R Us is made up of a team of five dedicated future social workers in the Bachelor’s of Arts in Social Work program at the California State University, San Bernardino. Since the group’s implementation, they have assessed the need in San Bernardino with troubled youth and low-income families. They have acknowledged that this low-socio economic community represents a cycle of poverty within our youth and families in need. Instead of looking forward to a brighter future, most of these youth simply allow themselves to become another statistic. They continue the cycle of violence, criminal association, homelessness, poverty, and substance abuse. As future social workers, Hearts 4 Us strives to reach out to these youth and families in need to ensure that they are privileged to earn a college degree and break the cycle of poverty within the San Bernardino community.
Some of the resources that the team provides include assistance with college and scholarship applications, resume building, applying to benefits such as cash-aid, food stamps, and medical. Hearts R Us has a primary mission of assisting the community and enabling all individuals to succeed.
Hearts R Us and Hope In The City will be having a weeklong event where they together will be making dinner to feed the families within San Bernardino County during the week of February 22 and February 23 from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. There will also be a resource fair along on Friday, February 23 from 1 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Everyone is welcome!
