Heart To Heart was established June 1, 2000 as a result of an invitation from God to partner with Him in work that He was already doing in Flanagan, IL. Because of the ministry perspective, it was decided that all services at H2H would be provided on a donation basis, based on need, rather than ability to pay fees. The plan was for the financial funding to come from private donations, church gifts and grant monies. A Board of Directors was developed and began providing leadership to the ministry. The agency was started as a ministry service to the rural area communities surrounding Flanagan, and over the years the service area has grown exponentially. Our first satellite office was opened in Normal, IL in April 2011.
The agency founder, Sandy Egle, had a special heart and passion for supporting & encouraging those individuals who were "falling through the cracks" of the established social service system due to their economic status.
Sandy was well aware of the fact that many people were financially "over qualified" for special services, but yet not financially stable enough to be able to access the services at the current fee levels of $100 - $130 per session. With these individuals in mind, Heart to Heart Support Services, N.F.P. was established.
