Harvesting International Ministries, Inc. was founded in 1987 in El Paso, Texas, as White Harvesting Ministries. Our goal was simple; provide hot meals to the homeless. Today, our name has changed and we have relocated our corporate office to Mansfield Texas, but our goal remains the same; feed those in need.
Harvesting International Ministry Center provides emergency assistance to children and families affected by natural disasters and works with communities to develop long-term solutions to poverty. We serve approximately 100,000 people in over 25 counties throughout North Texas. Our work is evident in over 75 communities, where we join with local people to find lasting ways to improve the lives of impoverished children and families.
To achieve sustainable transformation, Harvesting International Ministry Center is dedicated to building the capacity of individuals in need and the groups that serve them. In fiscal 2008, Harvesting International served approximately 500,000 people-more than 250,000 of them children.
Our goal is to give every child the chance to thrive and experience life in all its fullness. Children and families unable to afford necessities that many of us take for granted are being helped by local partners that include schools, churches, food pantries, homeless shelters, and others nonprofit agencies who share our passion for serving those in need.
We strive to:
Provide opportunities for young people to participate in mission trips to increase their global awareness and cultural sensitivity Train and facilitate local missions Further develop and expand our outreach programs Enable, mentor, and enhance the outreach efforts of other local agencies. Provide a haven for the hungry
