Healing Our Hearts Foundation has been working tirelessly to support Black families since its inception. Amid the planning and piloting, the world as we knew it changed forever. COVID-19 hit, and the population affected the most was and is Black families. To support families through the pandemic, we shifted our focus to create supports specific to the needs of Black families and those most vulnerable and impacted by COVID-19.
We expanded our support services to include gift cards, additional rental assistance, utility assistance and help with food instability.

Dane County Collaboration for Black Service Providers
When our focus shifted, we were met with opportunities to develop coordinated services and supports through multiple partnerships and collaborations to support families efficiently and effectively. This includes a collaboration of 15 Black-led organizations, known now as Dane County Collaboration of Black Service Providers (“DCCBSP” or the “Collaboration”), which is composed of small, grassroots to mid-sized community-based organizations that have been mobilizing since early March to meet the needs of those most affected by COVID-19.
The Collaboration was awarded $200,000 from the United Way of Dane County’s COVID-19 Relief Fund and is managed by the lead-applicant, Brandi Grayson, founder and CEO of Urban Triage, Inc., and Karen Reece, Vice President of Nehemiah Community Development Corporation. DCCBSP represents an unprecedented partnership to mobilize coordinated efforts aimed at mitigating and minimizing the health, economic, and social impacts of the current crisis on communities of color.
The funds were divided evenly among each organization to serve individuals and families in their areas of expertise. The Collaboration will connect individuals and families directly to organizations that can best meet their needs as well as coordinate to provide wrap-around services efficiently.
The organizations represented in the Collaboration include:
- Urban Triage, Inc.
- Nehemiah Community Development Corporation
- Foundation for Black Women’s Wellness
- FOSTER of Dane County
- Freedom Inc.
- Harambee Village Doulas
- Healing Our Hearts
- The House Urban Arts Initiative
