Heritage Foundation Inc. (HFI) is a non-profit organization that was established in the state of Georgia in 1989. The organization provides prevention, education, intervention, and treatment services throughout southwest Georgia. HFI was originally created to promote a positive image for African Americans and to enrich their lives through cultural programs within the community. With the discovery of far more deeply rooted generational, psycho-social and behavioral issues plaguing the family unit, in 1994 the organization broadened its focus to develop initiatives that address the proliferation of drug addiction among youth. These initiatives spawned nationally recognized programs that included drug prevention, in-home counseling and case management programs for adolescents and their families who faced substance abuse problems. Since its inception the organization has received in excess of $3M of both private and public funding to support these programs.
Our vision is to afford all persons within the South Georgia Community an opportunity to achieve a rewarding, healthy and productive life, free of substance abuse. The Heritage Foundation is dedicated to providing the highest level of dignified, safe, confidential, therapeutic, effective and targeted programs to our clients every day.
