Donor Testimonials

“You have a very clear picture of who you are helping, a young person, who is making a start on their own. It’s a big step in life. How nice to have a new set of the essentials to get this young person started off on the right foot.”

Maureen Clark


“I first became aware of Hearts to Homes through a friend who serves on the Board.



After taking a look at the website, I was very touched and moved by the impact Hearts to Homes has on young people’s lives as they step out into the world on their own. Providing these young adults with the basic necessities that allow them to call a place home has the potential to impact their lives forever.



I am a believer in the phrase “the journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.” I cannot think of a more meaningful and impactful first step in life, than that being taken through the efforts of Hearts to Homes with these young adults.”

Dennis Doherty



“I honestly can say that I never thought of someone ‘aging out of foster care.’ I can’t imagine starting out in a new apartment without all the basic necessities. Hearts to Homes is assisting these young adults and is giving them the support as if they were their own family. It gives us great joy to know that the Foundation in memory of our son, Frank III, is able to assist these young adults. Franky was always such generous person and would be very proud to know that we are able to make this donation.”

Laura Sinatra; President, Franky’s Field of Dreams Foundation


“Everyone deserves a place that makes them feel at home. I give to Hearts to Homes, because they make this a reality for so many young adults who lack that familial support system that many of us take for granted. I endorse this organization knowing that the individuals who run it are caring, passionate and determined to provide every child with a sturdy foundation and a fresh start.”

Steve Bendit


“Within the last 2 years, my 4 children have moved a total of 8 times, with more moves on the horizon. Each move required significant manpower and dollars for success. When all of these moves were transpiring in our lives, the Hearts to Homes program began, and I thought to myself, ‘How in the world would a young adult be able to accomplish all this on their own?’ Thank goodness Hearts to Homes was established. There was minimal impact for me to add one more item to the Bed Bath & Beyond shopping cart, and it is so easy to share this great program with friends. Knowing we could help someone in some small way, paying it forward, was gratifying. Seeing the video of the young adults, lining their shelves, placing their new household items in their new home, was simply heartwarming. To all of those who implemented Hearts to Homes, and to all those who benefit from Hearts to Home, I hope this little bit of help leads to even more success.”

Cathy Franzetti


“Hearts to Homes allows me to make an immediate difference in a very concrete way. There is no guessing on how my donation is being spent. I can even select the items from a wish list if I want to. Knowing I may have made someone’s day a little easier is a wonderful feeling.”
