Hollywood Heartwww.hollywoodheart.org

The roots to Hollywood HEART (Hope, Education, Art, Recreation, and Therapy) began in 1995 as a not-for-profit organization founded to address the social and recreational needs of children affected by HIV and AIDS. The children are encouraged to make new friends, increase their self-esteem, talk about their fears and feelings. In some cases, for the first time in their lives, they learn what it is like to be embraced rather than rejected. Hollywood Heart includes, Camp Pacific Heartland, a summer camp program for children and adolescents infected and affected by HIV and AIDS, The Movie Team, a unique filmmaking workshop for at-risk children to write, direct, produce and star in their own short films, and Camp Hollywood Heart a visual and performing arts camp for teens impacted by HIV and AIDS.
