Hilma’s Heart Community Organization

Hilma’s Heart is an organization that is dedicated to serving people in need and helping others unpack from their pasts, develop an awareness of trans-generational trauma to promote trans-generational healing, and help them navigate towards maximizing their full potential.

Hilma’s Heart was developed in honor of our mother, Hilma who passed away suddenly. Hilma was known and cherished by her community through her role as a Pediatric Nurses Assistant for over 20 years. She was always pouring in to others, especially at-risk youth. The children and parents she crossed paths with connected with her like family. Our mom knew that it took a village to raise a child and the difference that extra support makes.

Our mother was a genuine woman with a huge heart. As a single mother of five children who didn’t have much, she dedicated her life to helping her children and others; simply because she wanted to see others thrive and maximize their potential. My mother’s life and our experiences have influenced my mission to help others break away from anything that can hold them back. Through this organization we can keep her heart beating, continue to donate/serve at shelters, build people in the community, offer targeted workshops for youth, single parents, children in single parent homes, etc., and continue her legacy by helping others do the following:
