Mission: TO MAKE DIFFERENCE BY ENGAGING THE LIVES OF THE DISADVANTAGED UNDER SERVED OR THOSE REQUESTING ASSISTANCE TO MEET THEIR BASIC NEEDS BY PROVIDING THEM WITH RESOURCES TO HELP THEM REACH SELF-SUFFICIENCY.
Programs: The corporation's mission is to provide programs that address the basic needs of underserved populations in san antonio and bexar county, texas. In 2014, the corporation operated three programs that included: healthy babies, incontinence gap and hunger relief. The corporation is able to accomplish much of this through its approach of partnerships with other nonprofit agencies and health services providers to provide such programs. The corporations staff expertise is enrollment and procurement of services for their client population. Through this one-stop shop approach to services the corporation helps break down language, transportation and other barriers that may stop someone from seeking services. The corporation also develops and coordinates sites from which the services are to be delivered. The sites have included partner churches, non-partner churches and other entities located in the poorest sections of the city. A brief description of those three programs are as follows:healthy babies programpromotes the well-being, healthy growth, and development of babies through the provision of diapers, nutritional items, other baby items and child wellness education. Incontinence gap programpromotes the well-being and healthy living of children with disabilities ages 5 and older and senior adults through the provision of incontinence items such as diapers, wipes and bed liners. Hunger relief programthe hunger relief program assures that families are able to meet their nutritional needs through emergency food assistance.
My church operated a small Food Pantry out of the church building consisting of mostly canned food donated by the congregation. Our targeted recipients were those who came to the church seeking immediate and temporary assistance with food. However, as we began to serve more people, we realized we needed to expand our food ministry to keep up with the demand. When we approached the Hispanic Religious Partnership for Community Health, we learned they just happened to be looking for a new distribution site in our Zip Code. With minimal advertisement, we had our first Mobil Food Truck from the Food Bank, sponsored by the HRP, come to our church parking lot. We understand the usual turnout for a first such event is around 70 people. We had 125 come for food! HRP's sponsoring the Mobil Food Truck in our neighborhood has been an immediate success and blessing. We look forward to a long relationship.
I am a member of a church that parner with HRPCH about 7 months ago. we are so happy to been able to serve the comunity through the mobil food pantry and the diaper bank. we help about 200 families each month with food and about 110 famies with diapers each month. all this we can not be done without the support of ameilio and this ministry. thabks for all the support and help you give us
I was looking to help families who struggled to keep up with the diaper demands when I came across the HRPCH's website. I called and spoke with a person not a machine! The gentleman exuded enthusiasm and a real commitment to the cause he worked for. And, he was SO welcoming when he found out that I wanted to help by having a diaper drive in my neighborhood. This was my first real Drive and I needed guidance. He went out of his way to support me through the whole thing. Afterwards, he was so grateful (along with the rest of the staff)! This is a wonderful group who truly want to serve the community!
