What We Believe


Introducing ideas and leading action.

Initiatives are more than programs with a specific focus. They are introductory acts that set ideas and conversations into motion leading people to act. Heartland Foundation’s initiatives are described in further detail under “What We Do” on this website and include:

The global Healthy Communities movement applied to our region in northwest Missouri and the surrounding communities in Kansas, Iowa, and Nebraska.

A sub-set of the broad Healthy Communities movement is our (e2) education emPowers® initiative, which focuses on bringing awareness to the things that will help build better jobs, better wages, healthier people, and thriving communities.
