This is such an exciting moment for Heartbeet, and we still need your support! The construction portion of this building has come to a close–we are now turning our attention to filling this space with tables, chairs, kitchen appliances, bookshelves, and other furniture, fixtures, and equipment needed to make the Heartbeet Community Center a cultural hub for Heartbeet and the surrounding communities!
Please consider becoming a partner with us in this exciting new step for Heartbeet!
The Heartbeet Community Center – An Inclusive Cultural Hub
Heartbeet is building a community center! The Heartbeet Community Center will be the heart of Heartbeet and a community cultural center for the Northeast Kingdom. It will be a venue for gatherings, concerts, festivals, plays, conferences and many special events – a multi-purpose theater, seating 175 people, will be the core of the building. A conference room, library/educational resource center, administrative offices and a fully equipped processing kitchen/bakery are also planned.
The Heartbeet Community Center holds exciting possibilities for integration with the larger community, interactions that benefit and enrich everyone. Opportunities for friendship across abilities help to build acceptance and real inclusion in the world. Cultural, educational and artistic activities help to awaken and nourish the inner life, which is the wellspring of initiative, creativity, joy and good will – all essential for building a vibrant, healthy and truly social community.
In order to take this critical next step in our development, Heartbeet needs your help. By supporting the Heartbeet Community Center, you are supporting a vibrant and inclusive life for adults with special needs and helping to make a difference in the world.
