Our History

 

Fighting Hunger Since 1983

Beginning in 1983 out of a need to feed the hungry in the Pearland, Texas area, a ministry was born.  Nine local clergy welcomed the idea to have a Christian organization that would aid and service the growing problem of hungry people.  The original nine churches provided the core of such an organization and it was officially born on April 30, 1984 and was in operation by July 2, 1984.

Christian Helping Hands is operated by an ALL-VOLUNTEER staff. The member-churches have grown from nine to over twenty and from all denominations.  They all follow God’s command “….therefore I command you, You shall open wide your hand to your brother, to the needy and to the poor in this land.” Deuteronomy 15:11

A 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, Christian Helping Hands has assisted the needy residing in Pearland, Friendswood, Brookside and Manvel (Texas) with food, rent and utility assistance, clothing vouchers, gasoline and medical vouchers as well as emergency lodging.
