Your family is (hopefully) your built-in support system. They cheer on your accomplishments and encourage you when you are struggling. They listen to you when it seems like no one else cares what you have to say. Family is your first social connection when you enter the world and will continue to be there as others come and go.

A Culture of Philanthropy is not solely-focused on fundraising. It is especially important because it is part of our agency’s mission – to strengthen individuals and families in our community through education, counseling, and support services. Last year, our agency fulfilled its mission by helping to improve the lives of more than 52,000 individuals in our community through services provided within our more than 50 programs.

Dear Facebook friends and visitors,
If you’re here out of concern for our support dog, Meelo, please take a few moments to read our update.

We wish to take this opportunity to thank the entire community for the outpouring of support and kindness in recent days. Over the past week, the inflammatory accusations made against the children, staff, and our beloved dog Meelo, at our Jefferson House group home in Dodge County, have deeply saddened and concerned us.

Because of the dangerous, malicious, and threatening nature of comments we received and viewed on social media and in direct communications to our staff, Heartland Family Service has removed our dog Meelo from the Jefferson House and placed him in a safe and secure, family-centered home environment.

There are no facts whatsoever to substantiate the accusations of abuse. We say this not as a defense, but as the conclusion of professional investigations of Meelo himself, who does not show signs of distress, fear, physical, or emotional abuse.
