Save the Date: AUG. 26, 2023

You fit in here.

Heartspring's CAREfest is a fundraising festival packed with fun and events for everyone.

Thank you to everyone who made our first in-person CAREfest possible!
Because of you, we were able to raise more than $115,000 for the children and families of Heartspring.

Make sure you save the date for another day of fun, celebration, and advocacy on August 26, 2023.

Heartspring lifts up children with a variety of intellectual, developmental, physical, and behavioral needs through therapeutic and educational services. Funds from CAREfest help all departments at Heartspring succeed, including the Heartspring Therapeutic School, Pediatric Services, and Autism Services.
