Heartland Alliance works in communities in the United States and abroad to serve those who are homeless, living in poverty, or seeking safety. Its mission is to advance human rights and respond to the human needs of endangered populations through the provision of comprehensive and respectful services and the promotion of permanent solutions leading to a more just global society. As part of its Rapid Employment and Development Initiative, Heartland Alliance engages men who are most highly impacted by gun violence, and connects them to paid transitional jobs, cognitive behavioral therapy, and support services. This award provides travel assistance to enable Heartland Alliance staff to attend the MBK Rising! convening in Oakland, California which will bring national practitioners who serve boys and men of color together to share best practices and examine solutions to the complex challenges of serving this population.
