About HeartSmiles

Born from the pain and heartache of the Freddie Gray riots, HeartSmiles is all about providing youth from underserved communities with real opportunities to succeed in life. We know that too many forgotten neighborhoods are over-run with drug addiction, crime, prostitution and low expectations for life. Not only do we provide hope for youth who want to rise above their circumstances, we provide caring mentorship, leadership skill building, access to internships, careers and more.  

Our Heartbeats are proving every single day that it doesn't matter where you come from, there is purpose and value in every life.
