Smart Love Family Services

Celebrates 20 Years of Care!


Inspired by the research, clinical experience, and writings of Martha Heineman Pieper, Ph.D. and William J. Pieper, M.D., Smart Love Family Services was formed to help promote the inner well-being of children, parents, and families. From our initial offering of parenting seminars we have expanded our services to what they are today. Guided by the Smart Love™ approach, Smart Love Family Services provides the highest quality of care to all those who come to us for help.

Since opening our doors in 2002, we have helped thousands of children and families build healthier and happier lives and futures.

Smart Love's 20th Anniversary Gala

On Friday, March 11, 2022, we celebrated this milestone year at our Annual Benefit Gala to mark our two decades of service to the community and recognize Dr. Martha Heineman Pieper for all that she continues to mean for our mission and programs. The evening was an incredible success as our highest grossing fundraiser to date!
