Hill Country Daily Bread MinistriesCONNECT EMPOWER TRANSFORM
Our mission is to transform the lives of those in poverty through the love and saving grace of Jesus Christ.
Twice a month (every other Thursday) approximately $80-100 worth of canned food, bread, dessert, non-perishables and produce are delivered to hundreds of families and individuals in need by family mentors from our outreach partners. The families we serve at times must choose between keeping their utilities on, buying medicine for a sick child, or buying food. Our boxes can ease the need to make those terrible decisions.STAND BY ME MENTORING Stand By Me is a mentoring program that matches a Christian adult with an at-risk child from the Hill Country in grades K-12. These kids need another adult in their lives to provided extra spiritual, emotional and educational support. Mentees and mentors commit to make a one year commitment to the Program and receive careful screening, ongoing support and training.
