Words of Inspiration: Helping Homeless in Killeen

Helping Homeless in Killeen (HHIK) provides a warm and welcoming environment for the homeless and less fortunate individuals in the Killeen community for over five years now. This God led outreach ministry is an extension of Anointed Christian Church located at 333 East Avenue D in downtown Killeen. Every Monday morning from 7am-8am this ministry focuses on those in need by providing a hot meal, lunch to-go, and fellowship. HHIK also offers prayer, counseling, socks, under garments, and hygiene products. All resources are donated and served by loving volunteers. Anointed Christian Church is not state funded nor receives any assistance from the government. HHIK functions solely due to the helping hands and love of others. Current volunteers consist of families, groups, clubs, ministries, sports teams, schools, and businesses. Since the recent reopening of the Friends In Crisis homeless shelter; the average number of people served on Monday mornings is 50 adults. Children are rarely seen on Monday mornings, but when they are “Snuggle Packs” are given to each child consisting of hygiene items, snack, book, and a toy.

 

Helping Homeless In Killeen encourages those they assist to get to know and keep a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Spiritual literature is given in every hygiene bag which often leads to conversation and prayer requests. The scriptures state the less fortunate will always be with us, Deuteronomy 15:11 “For there will never cease to be poor in the land. Therefore I command you, ‘You shall open wide your hand to your brother, to the needy and to the poor, in your land.” Anointed Christian Church has provided opportunities for everyone to be able to help our fellow citizens by caring, and providing resources for basic daily needs to be met. Information is provided below to connect with this amazing ongoing effort.
