As Union Presbyterian Seminary student Tom LaBonte says, “There are so many issues facing our youth in today’s society that many search for hope,
for support and love because they either do not find that at home, are not part of a Church, and make decisions that lead them astray. Where the Heart Is provides inspiration for each of us to be compassionate and to doing more in placing the needs of others on at least an equal level with our own.”
