Every organization has a story. Here's ours.

The HeartWay was born out of the work of our Founder and Executive Director Dr. Andrea Deerheart, which encompasses the issues related to optimal wellness of mind, body, and spirit during dying and death–grief and loss, and compassionate, mindful and supportive care.

Volunteers are the heartbeat of The HeartWay

Our volunteers offer vital support and are infused with understanding, empathy, unconditional love, generosity, and compassion. Their altruistic actions serve to bond our community and we very much appreciate their service to humanity.
