We are also supported by over 600 volunteers in the local area that help to cover the daily shifts, provide the evening meals, and work with staff in various ways to provide for the operation of HCHS.
HCHS takes a pro-active approach to ministry and has created partnerships with local agencies to aid people in finding stability and hope in their lives.
It is through the love of Christ that we exist and it is through the love of Christ we share with those in need of hope and a hand up.
