Our History...

Rosenberg-Richmond Helping Hands was founded in 1985 by churches in the West Fort Bend County area, as a non-profit organization that helps people in crisis by providing basic needs on a short-term basis. We strive to provide assistance until the individual or family becomes self-sufficient. We have a very close relationship with our partnering churches in West Fort Bend County. Covenant churches signed a pledge promising financial support and agreed to hold at least two yearly food and/or clothing drives. New churches are always welcome to join in our efforts.

 

We Believe...

It is apart of our Christian calling to minister to those in need. Some churches and organizations in our area have their own programs with successful histories of providing similar services. By coordinating all of the resources of our supporters, we are able to provide more efficient services. We do not receive state or federal funding. We are supported by food, clothing and monetary donations. The donations come from churches, private individuals, civic organizations, private foundations and corporations. We are a member of the Houston Food Bank, Feeding America, the Fort Bend Chamber of Commerce and the Central Fort Bend Chamber.

School Supplies

During the summer, we have a special program for providing school supplies to children who might otherwise go to school without any. The Fort Bend Collaborative Information System provides a county wide 'Back To School' event each year. Households who have registered receive a new backpack filled with supplies and a new pair of shoes.

Christmas Program

The Fort Bend County Collaborative Information System holds an annual 'Santa Claus Is Coming To Fort Bend County' toy drive. In December, households who have registered and meet minimal requirements are invited to select toys for their children. Kids enjoy a day with Santa Claus while parents receive wrapping paper and unwrapped toys for their kids.
