Feeding Families. Changing Lives.
Shepherds Heart serves thousands of families protecting their children from being without food. They exist to meet poverty and hunger head on and overcome it. Hunger is often invisible, yet it exists among everyone. The poverty rate in the Waco area is twice the national average. In 2018, Shepherd’s Heart assisted 29,614 families with two-million pounds of food. Their efforts are to feed the hungry now and find solutions through their Empowerment Programs to provide people practical steps out of poverty. They also assist families with clothing and household items through their resale store, Things from the Heart. Each year their Toys from the Heart program provides Christmas to over 500 children that are homeless. All this happens with volunteers and by local donations.
