Heartstrings Paying Employees and Staff During COVID-19 Stay Home Order

March 23, 2020 – Olathe KS – Heartstrings Community Foundation has announced that they will pay employees and staff during the Stay Home Order in effect throughout the Greater Kansas City Area, Missouri and Kansas. 

Heartstrings Community Foundation is a licensed day service for nearly fifty adults, living in Johnson County Kansas, who have intellectual/developmental disabilities. The HCF staff teaches and coaches the employees we serve as they work in the Heartstrings businesses. The individuals HCF serves are not able to achieve independent employment in the community and rely upon HCF for their day service and employment. All 12 full-time, 9 part-time staff and 47 employees will benefit from this decision.

“Thanks to our generous donors and supporting businesses over the years, we’ve been able to establish a reserve for emergencies like this.” – Bunny Higgins, Executive Director.

This move aligns with the core mission and values of the organization and demonstrates our commitment to the Heartstrings family and community.
