Light Your Heart with Heartspring benefits the Heartspring Financial Assistance Program, which provides free and reduced fee therapies for the children with special needs served at Heartspring.
Many children with special needs benefit from more than one type of therapy, multiple times per week. However, not all insurance companies consistently cover the therapy costs, potentially causing difficulty for families to keep up financially. To ensure those served receive the services and therapies needed, the proceeds from Light Your Heart with Heartspring are used to award free and reduced fee therapies and services to these ever-deserving children. In FY16, the Heartspring Financial Assistance Program was able to award more than $618,000 in free and reduced fee therapies and services to 474 children. That equates to each child served receiving just $100 per month on average, while therapy costs for a child receiving three therapies per week at pediatrics services costs approximately $1,140 per month, or almost $14,000 per year on average. This is why events like Light Your Heart with Heartspring are crucial.
With the continued support and generosity of our community partners, Light Your Heart with Heartspring will continue to raise funds for these inspiring children so they can continue on their path towards greater independence. We invite you to learn more about these amazing children and the obstacles they overcome here: Heartspring Success Stories

We are grateful for the generosity shown by our community partners who help make this event possible. Because of their support, Heartspring is able to continuously offer financial assistance to the children of Heartspring so they can continue to receive the therapies and services needed on their path to greater independence. Together we are changing lives. Together we are Heartspring.
Thank you to all of our supporters!
When you purchase a ticket, it’s more than an evening of drinks, food and music; it’s a child telling his or her parent “I love you” for the first time in a speech therapy session, taking his or her first steps in a Heartspring hallway or even being invited to a birthday party for the first time because of a friendship made through Autism Services. These aren’t just scenarios; these are everyday occurrences at Heartspring because of the generosity of our community partners. With your ticket purchase to Light Your Heart with Heartspring, you are guaranteeing children’s opportunities to overcome their obstacles and exceed milestones never thought possible. Thank you for playing an active role in ensuring their future success!
