The Children’s Heart Program Volunteer Council Mission
Supporting children with special hearts, their families,
and those who care for them.
How can you help?

The Children’s Heart Program Volunteer Council is a non-profit organization and depends on the generosity of friends and businesses in the surrounding communities. Since CHPVC is a volunteer organization, 100% of all donations support programs that benefit children with special hearts and their families.
