Heart, Home, & Community was born out of love for the Baldwinsville community. Shelley Hoffman, the founder of HHC, moved here from Pittsburgh ten years ago and realized right away what a special place it is. In the decade since, she’s been active as a resident, local business owner, and enthusiastic volunteer in many organizations.
While she loved being so involved in different aspects of the B’ville community, Shelley realized that these different threads didn’t overlap very often. Residents didn’t know about new businesses, business owners weren't aware of upcoming events, and event organizers didn’t know about all the people looking to get involved. She founded Heart, Home, and Community in 2019 as a way to bring all those threads together and begin weaving together a beautiful tapestry of interconnected community in Baldwinsville, New York.
