Mission: Hill country daily bread ministries is a faith based ministry whose mission is to help unite and equip the hill country community with food, resources and training necessary to transform our communities and the lives of those in poverty and need.
Programs: Hill country daily bread ministries (hcdbm), a faith-based organization, serves impoverished families/individuals living in eight rural, underserved counties in the texas hill country. Our programs offer a full range of support and resources to give low-income families the tools they need to move out of poverty. Over 5,000 volunteers are involved in all aspects of program operations. Our programs include: the family mentoring resource program, community resource program, and programs for children. The family mentoring resource program (fmrp) is a christ-centered, relationship driven program that produces deep, measurable and lasting change in the lives of impoverished families. Family mentors come from partner churches and both are trained to understand the dynamics of poverty. Those we assist receive intentional case management, physical assistance of food, clothing and other items, and referrals to local community assistance agencies. Family mentors share the gospel and encourage the hope of jesus christ. Case managers help those we assist set long and short term goals toward becoming self-reliant. Through the community resource program, hcdbm partners with over 170 agencies in our service area and provides bulk food and other inventory items to support their programs. The development of these varied partnerships allows us to serve more people, expands the impact of our programs, provides more resources, and strengthens all organizations involved. Hcdbm has two programs that directly benefit children. The kingdom kids program provides children from families served by fmrp with christmas toys, easter baskets, birthday in a bag, back- to-school outfits, and a children's book club. Stand by me matches at-risk youth with trained mentors who encourage character development, emotional stability and academic success. Other program aspects are: our summer academic academy- teaching responsibility and offering remediation in math and language arts, and summer camps. All hcdbm programs are dedicated to helping low income families/individual gain stability, improve their quality of life and break the cycle of poverty. All programs are free of charge.
Since 2006, I have been a donor, family mentor volunteer and I also contract with HCDBM as their Development Consultant. This Ministry has helped me become closer to the Lord God though my hands on experience with the HCDBM mission. HCDBM helps those who are in poverty and crisis with one to one family mentoring. Each client is provided with a relationship with a volunteer family mentor who brings provisions to each family in the form of food, clothing, household goods. Most importantly HCDBM Family Mentors bring a loving, patient relationship that provides hope and faith that brings the family up and out of poverty and into self sustainability.
I have been a financial supporter of Hill Country Daily Bread Ministries for several years. I currently support several non profit organizations and none are more worthy of my financial support than HCDBM. I am delighted to have the opportunity to help them financially and will continue my support in the years ahead. There is not another ministry in the Hill Country that reaches as many people with needed food and clothing. HCDBM is in need of a larger facility to expand their operations. With much needed additional financial support they can fund a building project that will allow them to reach out to so many more people in need.
Hill Country Daily Bread is a wonderful organization that provides so much more than just food to their clients. Being faith based, they are much more focused on building relationships and effecting all areas of life as opposed to many other organizations that just provide a meal. I consider donating to Hill Country Daily Bread an excellent use of resources given to me by the Lord.
