A Heart For Humanity

Nov 2, 2009 by

Melody Thacker looked out the window of her office in Phoenix, Arizona, USA each day to the disturbing sight of homeless women and men walking along the street and standing idly in the empty lot across the street.  One morning as she watched homeless people shivering in the cold without any warm clothing she decided it was time to give something back.

From a simple starting point she created A Heart For Humanity.

Little did Melody know that unforeseeable twists in the fabric of her own life would cause A Heart For Humanity to evolve to serve two very diverse populations.
