We have served over
5,000 children and their families since 2011.  We're
on track to serve 4,000 in 2016 alone.

our mission

HHMD enhances the quality of life for children and families in the St. Louis area by meeting their immediate needs, then connecting them with life-changing resources that foster independence. 

the GOAL

We work to empower families in need to achieve stability in their lives. When a family is referred to us by our network of over 100 agencies, hospitals, and shelters, we first ensure each family has the clothing and other essential items necessary to parent effectively.  

We then assist families in finding stable employment and safe housing, while connecting emotionally through one-on-one life coaching.  We also connect families to other agencies that can meet their food, shelter and other emergency needs.

Our services allow social workers and nurses on the front lines to meet a need previously unmet for their clients. HHMD is viewed as the "glue" working alongside other agencies, and bringing in others if needed, to best serve families.

HHMD helps families break the cycle of poverty and works with them to find stability and independence.
