The Matthews Help Center does an amazing job of ministering to those who are experiencing a crisis in their lives. The staff is very committed and compassionate and treats each client with the respect they deserve. Volunteers are crucial to making the organization operate efficiently and effectively. The combination of the staff and volunteers truly make MHC "the house with a heart."

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

I delivered boxes of food from the Help Center to an aquaintance who is struggling. Seeing the relief and gratitude on her face when I arrived with the food was very rewarding.

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

Increased space.

In this time of great economic distress, The Matthews Help Center responds to families in crisis with resources of financial assistance, clothing, food, additional referral sources and hope. Clients are no numbers, but welcomed guests into the 'house with a heart".

Dedicated volunteers work in the thrift shop which is the primary funding source for the Help Center. These volunteers come from every walk of life, every age and every econonic background, but all are joined in the quest to make life better for those in need.

The Matthews Help Center is a place of refuge for those in crisis and for those with a heart to serve others.

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

Talking with volunteers and hearing about the work of the excellent staff to aid people in need.

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

Enable growth of services and in the physical location.
