Our annual Christmas with Dignity event took place on Friday, December 9, 2022. We served 395 families and 1,157 kids. We are so grateful for the generosity of those who donated the funds, toys, or gift cards that enabled us to provide 2400 gifts for these families.
We also had 175 volunteers work to make this event happen. Seeing smiles on the faces of the shoppers as they departed with their gifts assures us that their holiday season will be a bit brighter as they see evidence of God’s love and receive the support of their community.
Thanks To All Gift Donors and Volunteers

Super Student of the Month
This past month 11 of our students did an excellent job in their classes and doing their work. We held a raffle and Jenesis a 4th grader in Ms. Durant’s class won a bike as one of the Super Students of the month. Congratulations Jenesis!
Each week our teens get together for some food, fun, and fellowship. And they get together just to discuss life. Things have been pretty rough the past year on the North Side and at HH they have a safe place to gather and belong.
