Why Happy Hearts Working?
Jack brings clarity in few words...
"I going Happy Hearts Working!"
Inspired by Jack
We are truly inspired by Jack, who has Down syndrome and has lived with unique challenges as he matures, while his twin brother, Nick, leads a typical teenage life. Instead of heading off to college like his brother soon, Jack and others who have intellectual and developmental disabilities are at risk of becoming disconnected following high school, after completing years of education, life skills training and social development.
We refuse to let that be Jack's story.
A Plan for Success
Our love for Jack and so many others in his situation has led us to develop a unique business model, specifically designed to fulfill the needs of each individual with intellectual and developmental disabilities. It is the plan for success after high school. Happy Hearts Working offers:
LIFE SKILLS TRAINING & CONNECTIONS TO PAID EMPLOYMENT
VOLUNTEER WITHIN THE COMMUNITY
ENVIRONMENT TO BUILD
Our goal at Happy Hearts Working is to provide an enriching Christian day service program for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. HHW is committed to implementing opportunities for our associates to enjoy a purposeful, meaningful life shared with others!
You can help us reach our goal!
Opening in the Fall of 2018
We plan to initiate our program during the Summer of 2018. We will continue developing our systems, procedures and program and officially open our doors to associates in the Fall of 2018.

Partner for Jobs
We are seeking partnerships with schools and businesses to identify part-time jobs that could be successfully completed by intellectually and developmentally disabled associates. Opportunities will be requested for HHW associates who qualify, to “intern” at your school or business, practice their targeted job skills towards positive outcomes, and ultimately secure a part-time job position.
