In 2014, a group of individuals from St. Ann Parrish in Phoenixville sought for ways to re-purpose the vacant Sacred Heart School to support the Phoenixville community. The group decided to form a secular non-profit that would seek to listen to the community, identify needs, and utilize this and other spaces on the Sacred Heart Campus to fill gaps in services. The group formed Ann’s Heart, a public non-profit 501(c)(3) charity organization, with a mission to provide a place of welcome and human services for all Phoenixville area people.
In partnership with the community, Ann's Heart is working to re-imagine the Sacred Heart site as a space open to the community. The Sacred Heart Church Hall has been transformed into the Code Blue Overnight Emergency Warming Center, serving our neighbors in need. The Sacred Heart School is being re-purposed as a community education center - The HEART - which will provide non-profits, community groups, and individuals the space to teach, share, learn and grow in the heart of downtown Phoenixville.
Join us as we work towards our vision to create a space FOR the community, BY the community.
