Our Mission is to alleviate hunger and poverty, by providing nutritious food, cooking classes, and clothing to low-income families and people in need. We are also committed to addressing the huge public health burden of drug use and overdose in our community. We strive to provide high-quality services to the people we serve with compassion, dignity, and respect.
Our Vision is to reach out to men, women and youths who have lost their sense of dignity, confidence, self-esteem and pride, due to abuse (physical or mental), homelessness, drug addiction, hunger or simply lack of love. We envision a society where men, women and youths can fully live out their dreams in a non-judgmental environment, and becoming all that God has created them to be.
Our Purpose is to meet the spiritual, physical and emotional needs of men, women and youths in our community. HHEC is designed to foster and encourage partnerships and to provide people with the right tools and skills needed to empower them in reaching our community for Christ. Our hope is that everyone who comes in contact with HHEC will have an unforgettable encounter of encouragement and hope, as we reflect on the power and grace of God. Relationships do not just happen. They are nurtured and produced through love and sincere affection. God has revealed His love to us through His Son, and it is our passion to share that love through genuine care and concern for others.
