If those of us who had a lot
would give to
those of us who have a little,
all of us would have enough.

Stewardship Project

The Stewardship Project has established a distribution network that connects and effects several communities. For the past twenty plus years, we have been collecting household goods, clothing, and more to recycle within our community. In 2011, our Stewardship Project got a jump-start when it became a member of the Good360 retail program hosted by the United Way. Through this membership and for a membership fee, our local Advanced Auto, William Sonoma, and Pottery Barn have adopted us. These stores give us returned, discontinued, and overstock items.

We now have a presence in Connecticut, Florida, and Vermont and as members of these communities have stepped forward to advance our wish to make a difference in the neighborhoods we live in.

We started out with a donated Jeep truck and utility trailer to pick up items. When the truck “died” we collected funds to buy a van to serve as our “pick-up” vehicle. We have just purchased a truck that can haul larger loads between Connecticut and Vermont and have initiated a fund drive to continue supporting our vehicles.  We are appreciative of donations and the people who have offered their services for storage, weekly runs to the store, maintenance of the vehicles when needed, tech support for laptops donated by the State of Connecticut, cash donations, and the construction of this web site. We continue to modify our “system” of pick-ups, storage and distribution, working out many of the bugs.

All donations go directly to this end and as we are a 501 c 3 non-profit corporation, all donations are tax deductible. We also accept donations of “time” – our most valuable resource. Thank you for all that you have given in the past and hope that you will spread the word to your friends so that they might share in this wonderful tradition. 

We will continue with this program in the years to come, reaching out to all our neighbors in an attempt to make life just a bit easier. Although money is important to sustain us, the extension of kindness and caring is always our first priority and the donation of personal time is our top resource. Thank you for your continued support over the years.”

Neighbor helping Neighbor


Healing Arts Institute, Inc. of Central Florida reaches out to help our neighbors. We are connected with a local food pantry and are able to setup ‘tents’ to distribute food, clothing, shoes and books to the community’s homeless, as they come out of the food pantry. Our community can always count on us when they have items no longer needed – items that they know we will place with other families in central Florida.

Our membership with Good360, allows us to partner with participating local corporations. Most of our work is accomplished through word of mouth and our dedicated volunteers. We are humbled and grateful for all their dedication, hard work and community outreach.

We especially like to assist our Veterans who have sustained severe injuries and require intensive rehabilitation and/or medical care, which is not available in their local communities. They often travel to central Florida for the specialized care. This can take a toll on our veterans and their families. Healing Arts is honored to provide some small comforts, like a home cooked meal.
