Safeguarding Young Hearts & Minds
We help educate and equip to expose child exploitation
before it begins.
Child exploitation happens everywhere – even in our smallest, most peaceful communities. Unfortunately, it is often unidentified until it’s too late.
HeartMatters is a Bartlesville-based non-profit that helps teach school aged students how to proactively identify and protect themselves from dangerous content and potential predators they may encounter both online and in their communities. We offer in-school programs and also collaborate with area non-profits, homeschool groups and churches to provide exploitation prevention classes and workshops.
IS YOUR CHILD AT RISK?
If they spend time viewing online media, the answer is 'yes.' In today's world, predators look for any possible way to gain access to our precious youth. It's critical that parents and guardians are aware of how children are being targeted, approached – and exploited.
At HeartMatters, our goal is to prevent exploitation of our youth through proactive and educational programs.
