Our Mission



To inspire transformation of the Boiling Springs community
through mindful growth and development
that supports convenient choices for an active healthy lifestyle.



For a vibrant, connected, and healthy Boiling Springs
that attracts families, businesses, and institutions
who contribute to building our community by embracing health,
and, in doing so, leave a legacy for future generations.

The Heart of Boiling Springs is an outgrowth of Upstate Forever’s “Building a Healthy Boiling Springs Cohort,” a 2017 initiative that convened a small group of community stakeholders concerned about the health and quality of life impacts of unbridled growth and predominantly automobile-oriented development in Boiling Springs.

In late 2017, the Cohort expanded its outreach and launched its new brand “Heart of Boiling Springs: Building Community, Embracing Health, Leaving Legacy” to engage the community-at-large.  Both the Heart of Boiling Springs and its predecessor Building a Health Boiling Springs Cohort were made possible through Mary Black Foundation grant funding awarded to Upstate Forever.
