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've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

that I was a family mentor for two years and assisted five families become self sustaining. As a family mentor, I was the resource for families in crisis and poverty by bringing them HCDBM resources as I also connected them to community and church assistance. This brought me into the lives of the families I served and made them my friends. I have been able to see their children thrive as the family became able to stand on their own.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

provide them with a larger facility with all the needed staff, warehouse space and volunteer training space so that HCDBM can provide assistance to more people in need. This is a wonderful Ministry that needs to grow because the need is growing daily.

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.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Seeing the lives of people living in poverty changed. I have spoken with individuals that were once receiving aid that are now volunteering and no longer in need of aid. That alone shows me great success.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Give them a larger warehouse for food storage, update their facility and provide them with drive in freezer space to make their freezer stocking less labor intensive.
