Minding Hearts has public groups, “Hearts and Minds” in each state. The groups are created to raise awareness, educate, and advocate for those that might not otherwise be heard. We are here for encouragement, education, and support. We cannot give legal advice, but we can try and direct you in the right direction with your case. Links to legal services are listed with their states. Please share and let’s grow our groups. We are here to support families and develop resources that maintain family integrity. We look forward to your support. If you would rather become active by donating then visit the donation page. Thank you.

We talk about issues that affect everyone; criminal justice, family court, divorce, parenting, healthcare, mandatory reporting, justice reform, and more.

If you are looking for resources you can find them here. This is a work in progress so if you know of any resources that should be listed please comment on this website or join the state group and list the resources and information that people need to know about. Thank you.

I tried to organize the website by topic but it didn’t work the way I hoped it would. There is this #cradletothegrave thing going on that has the courts and medical systems involved from birth until sometimes generations after death. and then there is the #schooltoprisonpipeline and the #schooltofostercarepipeline and the #fostercaretoprisonpipeline. Everything that is wrong revolves around what happens to the family unit, and the individual. Stronger families grow stronger individuals and strong families grow stronger communities.

Hearts and Minds is on Facebook, and Twitter. and has a group for each state where everyone can comment and talk about issues in your state that affect you and your family and friends. If you know of resources that you feel are helpful please comment on this website or join the state Facebook page and post the resources. Thank you.
