Hill Country Daily Bread MinistriesOur mission: To help unite and equip the Body of Christ with food, resources, and training necessary to transform our communities and the lives of those in poverty and need through the love and saving grace of Jesus Christ.
Poverty in the Hill Country
The families we serve are suffering from a crippling gap in access to basic needs due to a number of situational and generational factors. They live in rural communities undergoing desperate levels of poverty and often do not have the resources to pay for necessary provisions like food, clothing and basic sanitation products. Since most families served by HCDBM live in rural areas, they are estranged from community resources, furthering their struggle to reach self-sufficiency.
For families living in HCDBM service areas,
- 40% must choose between paying for utilities or heating and food
- 29% must choose between paying for rent or a mortgage and food
- 36% must choose between paying for medical bills or food San Antonio Food Bank, Trinity University Study
