Hearts & Minds - Information for ChangeSM

Important Notes about Our Website
How to use our advice, accuracy of information, reprints, copyrights and service marks

Hearts & MindsSM works to provide information that can make a very positive difference for your life, family, community and world. Though we make a strong effort to give you valuable, potentially life changing information, there are limits to what we can provide.

Please note:

  • All information in this website should be combined with other sources of information. Ideas in this website are always only suggestions. They are not necessarily the only or best possible answers for you.
         For a challenge of any kind, it is always best - and we strongly recommend - that you receive advice from many sources. Then you can then decide and take responsibility for what is really best for you. For difficult or possibly hazardous personal and group challenges, professional advice should also be sought.

  • Information and organizations presented in this website and in websites we link to are informational resources, but are not a substitute for psychological, medical or legal advice, diagnosis, or treatment. We are not specialists with this expertise. We cannot make any warranty on the safety of any organizations, activities, products or exercises in this website or any others. Also, for any potentially serious legal, medical or psychological problem, you should also consult a lawyer, doctor,  psychologist, or other qualified professional.

  • Listings of organizations in the Volunteering, Self-Help, and other sections of our website include descriptions of organizations in quotes. These have been edited by us, and are only paraphrases based on what each group says about itself. Of course the organization is the best source for a more complete description of their services.
         Under these quotes you'll usually find text in italics. These are reviews by our volunteers. They are not necessarily experts on the issues they review. Their ideas are only personal opinions, not final judgments on the value of any organization, its integrity or activities.

  • Listings and even favorable descriptions of organizations are never endorsements. The amount or positioning of coverage is not proportional to an organization's ethics or effectiveness. Groups that are not listed may be very worthy of support. Groups that we do list may have serious problems that we are unaware of or do not have resources to investigate.
          Additional helpful info on nonprofits (non-governmental organizations) is available from
    other organizations that specialize in this.

  • Views expressed in various parts of this website are not necessarily those of Hearts & Minds. We encourage a range of opinions.
  • Photos in the website include people who work with us, people who benefit from our services, the many kinds of people we work to help, and scenes and people that illustrate issues that Hearts & Minds addresses. People in photos in this website are are not necessarily direct beneficiaries, participants or endorsers of Hearts & Minds. They do not necessarily have any of the problems that Hearts & Minds addresses, even when they appear on a web page that is about a specific problem.

Hearts & Minds seeks to avoid any inaccuracies or copyright violations in our website and other publications. We give careful instructions to our many volunteer researchers, writers and editors. Nonetheless, mistakes are still possible. We make every reasonable effort to correct any errors brought to our attention.
