About Us

Who We Serve

Empowering youth and adults to make a difference

Heartland Foundation’s primary service area is northwest Missouri and the surrounding counties in Kansas, Nebraska, and Iowa with our offices located at our emPowerU campus in downtown St. Joseph, Missouri.

Our programs empower youth to realize that their voices are important, education is valuable, and they can make a difference in their communities now.

Adults also benefit from Heartland Foundation’s work.  We engage adults in meaningful conversations through collaborative programs and events.
