How to Enroll at OneHeart

Thank you for your interest in OneHeart!  In order to become a OneHeart program participant you must be actively working with and referred to us by a Partner Provider agency.

Becoming a OneHeart program participant is not for everybody. OneHeart is not a shelter, but rather a transformation campus where job, skill, or education and healing unresolved trauma is the focus. The goal is to rebuild lives, instill confidence, and create self-sufficiency. If this is what you desire, please reach out to one of our partners.

If you are ready to transform your life, we hope to see you on campus soon!
