Our Story

Tocando Corazones (Touching Hearts) is a Long Island-based international nonprofit organization that is focused on helping those most in need and those people that are too often forgotten worldwide. Founded by Nancy Martinez, this organization sprung from her realization of just how different the level of access to essentials such as healthcare and stable housing, could be between communities. Even in our supposedly connected world, many people are still sadly overlooked.

Our Focus

We want to be there for people who feel forgotten. While our Long Island based nonprofit organization is currently focused in the United States of America, the Dominican Republic, and Haiti at this time – our vision is international. Through our work, there is no limit to the hearts we can touch.
