THE STORY:

MISSION  |  Children Mending Hearts is dedicated to empowering disadvantaged youth through educational and arts programs that build empathy and global citizenry.  Our goal is to directly engage the youth of America in global children’s causes where they can positively impact the life of another child and ultimately realize their potential to effect change both in their own community and around the world.

ABOUT  |  When CMH founder, Lysa Heslov, was exposed to the tragedy of the genocide in Sudan, she wanted to help.  Her idea was to empower children in the war-torn region through the gift of art.  She made kites with a group of children who beamed with rare smiles as they watched their creations soar in the air.  Moved extraordinarily by this powerful experience, Heslov's mind turned to the disadvantaged youth in the US.  Soon, Children Mending Hearts was born. Her dream is to empower at-risk children in the United States by giving them a global education and connecting them internationally to children in need.  She imagines the day when all disadvantaged youth are proud global citizens who realize their ability to effect change not only in their own lives, but also in their community and around the world.

HIGHLIGHTS  |  CMH has served over 10,000 children in the past 4 years. We have reached youth in Los Angeles, New York and Las Vegas as well as Darfur, Congo, Haiti and Japan.  CMH Global Arts After School program launched in 2012 with one class reaching 40 students weekly.  By the end of 2013, the program will have reached over a 1,000 at-risk youth through weekly after school programming.  The program provides students with focused arts learning, awareness about a specific country, empathy-based social skills and opportunities to connect with youth in the country of focus.  Currently, classes in photography, fine arts, textile arts and anime are offered.  

CMH also facilitates global arts exchanges between children in the US and children living in disaster/conflict areas abroad.

Children Mending Hearts programs reach at risk, low income, chronically ill and gang affected youth, primarily throughout the Los Angeles area.
