HURRICANE KATRINA WAS A WAKE-UP CALL


After Hurricane Katrina, FOLLOW YOUR HEART delivered 37 truck and trailer loads of goods to Louisiana. Traveling across the United States nineteen times, we saw slums, Indian reservations, ghettos, people young and old who need help. To see our government spending money on war and weapons and not helping these people gave us the momentum to do something to help our country. For this reason, we founded Follow Your Heart Action Network.
Ten men traveled to New Orleans and the surrounding communities as volunteers. Several gave testimonies that their lives were transformed by following their hearts and doing this work.
Since 2005, as the principle founder of Follow Your Heart, I, Curtis Reliford, have dedicated my life to encouraging and supporting people who are in need and not receiving proper help.
In 2007, Follow Your Heart Action Network received 501c3 status as a non-profit organization. We made a stand for helping people in Santa Cruz, Watsonville, and the surrounding Bay Area, building our headquarters in this community. We collect and distribute donated and purchased items to migrant workers in the fields, low-income apartment complexes, recovery centers and soup kitchens. Follow Your Heart brings hope in the form of labor, inspiration and goods. It is a network of caring individuals banded together to provide grassroots community service.
Since 2007, we have continued to do this humanitarian work. Now we have expanded to the Navajo and Hopi Indian reservations in Arizona. Between 2007 and 2014, we made 7 trips there. We are also expanding our capacity to serve those who need help the most with grants and new sources of funding. With the help of God, we will continue expanding throughout the USA.
Our vision is to spread this journey of kindness. We have all ready witnessed people’s lives changing because of our work, our positive messages, and our caring and sharing services.

Successful deliveries have also been given to people in

  • Santa Cruz, CA
  • Watsonville, CA (migrant workers)
  • San Juanico, Mexico
  • Hopi and Navajo reservations in Arizona

Follow Your Heart Action Network’s goals are to expand here in the United States. Are you with me?
