Who We Are

 

 

Our Mission

The Healthy Mind Happy Heart Foundation is a 501c(3) non-profit organization based in Central Florida providing financial assistance to individuals seeking treatment for mental health.  Benefits are based on a sliding scale.  Financial assistance can be provided for short or long term residential treatment, out-patient treatment and group or individual counseling sessions.  Grants are offered depending on household income and size.

The Beginning

The Pay It Forward Agape Group was founded by Evelynn Rivadeneira.  Evelynn’s passion for the helping field stems from a quote by Jay Oord:  “I believe we have an intentional responsibility to promote well-being when responding to that which has caused ill-being.”

To “pay it forward” – it is an expression for describing the beneficiary of a good deed, repaying it to others instead of the original benefactor. It is simply an active expression of a Good Samaritan (someone who helps strangers).

“Agape” – a Greek word for unconditional love.  This form of love is totally selfless and does not change whether the love given is returned or not; it is a sacrificial love.  It devotes a total commitment to always seek your highest best no matter how anyone may respond to you.

We are serving the community DBA Healthy Mind Happy Heart with a devoted commitment to assist financially those in need of mental health treatment. The foundation is diligently working on educating the community on the importance of including a wellness plan for mind, body and spirit for the whole family unit.
