about heavenly hands
meeting needs one hand at a time
Bethel's Heavenly Hands was birthed to assist individuals with the basic needs of life, in an effort to create stability upon which to grow. We provide vital resources to support individuals and families by meeting basic human needs for food, clothing, and shelter assistance. By creating a foundation, we aim to promote economic self-sufficiency, empowerment, and overall improvement. By assisting the individual, we in turn empower the community.
The motto of Heavenly Hands is "meeting needs, one hand at a time" and we are a community outreach program that strives to serve Southwest Houston and surrounding communities. While we serve everyone with compassion, love, dignity, and respect; we provide for low income clients, households with children, the underprivileged and the underserved. We are NOT zip-code restricted and we do not receive any federal grants. We rely solely on the funds generated from our Blessed Again resale store and donations from individuals such as yourself.
We distribute over 40 tons of food and household supplies every month - to individuals and families in our community!
We serve 3,000
hot meals every month!
In 2020, we gave out over $2,100,000 worth of food and supplies!
a heartfelt testimony
jesse, a tsa employee
During the 35-day partial government shutdown, federal workers and contractors across the country found themselves without paychecks -- many having to make the impossible choice of either paying the rent or
providing three meals a day for their families.
Thanks to the support from generous friends like you, the Houston Food Bank jumped into action to help government employees get the food and help they needed. We added several food distribution events for
people affected by the shutdown and served more than 10,000 meals to more than 1,950 of our most vulnerable neighbors. Neighbors like Jesse.
Jesse has been working for the TSA for 16 years. Though this isn't his first government shutdown, he said "this one seems different." He was afraid that he'd have to choose between his diabetes medicine or paying the mortgage. Jesse was able to turn to one of the Food Bank's food distributions. Getting the food he needed left him with "one less bit of stress."
From emergencies like the government shutdown to the everyday struggle of hunger, the Food Bank is dedicated to being there for neighbors like Jesse. Because of you, we can continue to provide the nutritious meals and programming that our community needs now and in the future.
