Heartwood Center is proud to be partnered with these organizations whose activities expand our mission to promote health and wellbeing.
1. The Heartwood Women and Cancer Program provides free holistic healthcare for women in financial need living with cancer. The services include:
- a choice of 6 free acupuncture, massage, bodywork or psychotherapy treatments
- a choice of 12 free yoga, tai chi, meditation, or exercise classes
- an educational speaker’s bureau program to cancer support groups
- transportation for participants without options
advocacy, if needed
These are for women over 18 years of age with a cancer diagnosis – who are lower income (260% of poverty level); women who could not otherwise afford to receive integrative therapy services – who live in the greater Chicagoland area. Practitioners and teachers are located in Beverly, Evanston, Forest Park, Hyde Park, Lakeview, Lincoln Park,Logan Square, Oak Park, Pilsen, Rogers Park, and West Town.

2. Heartwood partnered with Erie Family Health Center, which delivers high quality care to nearly 70,000 medical patients and 12,000 dental patients in the language of their choice and with respect for their cultural values and beliefs. Nearly all of our providers are bilingual in English and Spanish. Our community-based health centers are portals to high-quality care—and a higher quality of life—regardless of a patient’s ability to pay. Erie Family Health refers their patients to the Heartwood Center for low cost to no cost holistic healthcare.

3. Two years ago, Heartwood launched a Kickstarter campaign raising $50,000 in a few weeks to bring Curt’s Cafe South across the street from the center. The cafe is an opportunity to “dine with purpose”, by enjoying great food and helping the community at the same time. Curt’s South is quickly becoming the neighborhood gathering place, serving good food and doing good things for Evanston’s at-risk young women.
