Dorcas Heart is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that supports the underserved in our local communities. We provide essential items (hygiene supplies, sleeping bags and blankets) to the homeless, deprived individuals and families to ensure they are clean, warm, dry and well.
Our vision is to prevent humiliation, restore hope and human dignity by providing the basic needs of homeless and deprived individuals (sheltered and unsheltered). We do this by providing some necessities to live, a warm blanket, a sleeping bag, toothbrush, soap and some food. This not only brings the basics to survive, but it provides hope for another day.

Dorcas Heart Team,
As the 2022 ice storm approached, my staff and I were distressed that several of our students might not have winter weather gear. We were deeply concerned about them staying warm. We contacted the Dorcas Heart Team and expressed our concern. Within days, the Dorcas Heart Team provided hats and gloves to our students in need. Our students were so excited to receive the items, and our staff was relieved to know that the students would have some extra protection against the winter weather.
From the bottom of our hearts, Thank You Dorcas Heart for providing for our students, and #MakingAnImpact.
One of my students was incredibly excited to receive the gloves and hat. They said that it made them feel cared for and like they mattered to someone.
Thank you so much. The gloves and hats could not have come at a better time.
An elementary student who received a hat and gloves from Dorcas Heart said, “Now that I have a hat and gloves, I can throw snowballs outside.”
I gave the hats and gloves to a young man who in addition to going to school also works to help support his family. Most of his work takes place outside. He was so thankful and appreciative. The items were much needed and much appreciated.
