Healing Hearts Ministries was formed to provide Biblical counsel and discipleship to individuals who suffer emotionally and spiritually from the pain, trauma, and affliction of their past. Approximately 50% of our clients suffer from post-abortion trauma. Approximately 5000 individuals have been served requiring approximately 150,000 volunteer hours.
We live in a desperate, dying world that needs the hope and healing of Jesus Christ. This hope is shared by Healing Hearts through Bible-based studies.
