WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING


Pastor Greg Young

We have utilized the counseling referrals programs at His Heart Foundation in order to serve our church members, especially when a specialized need arises. We would recommend their services without reservation.


Pastor Mandi McIsaac

I closed my counseling office in January of 2017 to go into full-time ministry as Children’s Pastor at Church on the Rock. However, I did not anticipate the counseling requests that still came to me through my transition. HHF has given me such peace of mind, as I have been able to work with them to find good referrals that I can trust for the individuals that were coming to me for care. Through HHF I have found a standard of excellence that I can be confident in. What a blessing HHF has been to this community and to me.


Wayne Sommers

My experience with His Heart Foundation was excellent. They worked well with the person that I referred to them and were able to do so in a concise and clear fashion. As a pastor, I greatly appreciated their thoroughness and follow through. I highly recommend them as an excellent and viable resource.
