Relief

From its founding, Helping Hands Ministry has focused its resources on relieving the effects of poverty in Belton. The ministry offers its clients a client-choice food pantry, clothing department, rent and utilities assistance, care for newborns, and other necessities for living.

Development

Helping Hands Ministry gives some unemployed clients the opportunities they need to find a job through the employment mentoring ministry. In addition, all clients are encouraged to attend free education classes at Helping Hands’ facility to improve their financial, health and other essential skills.

Advocacy

Open your mouth for the mute, for the rights of all the unfortunate. Open your mouth, judge righteously, and defend the rights of the afflicted and needy.  Proverbs 31:8-9 Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.  Philippians 2:4  Learn to do right; seek justice. Defend the oppressed. Take up the cause of the fatherless; plead the case of the widow.  Isaiah 1:17
