About Help Give Hope
Help Give Hope was established in 1981 to assist needy children and families in Southwest Missouri. Originally designed to only provide Christmas assistance, the charity now has a robust year-round mission and has become one of Southwest Missouri’s largest children’s charities. We serve Greene, Northern Christian and western Webster counties.
We assist families with utilities, rent, gas vouchers and educational help throughout the year. Our 2016 Christmas…provided Christmas to 212 families. Since 2006 we have assisted almost 2,500 families and over 8,000 children with a Merrier Christmas. We also offer a used car program that has become one of the largest in the Midwest…with over 125 vehicles donated to families in need since the program’s inception. We are excited about our new mentoring program that will provide positive adult role models for at-risk youth.
100% of all donations go directly to families in need. All donations are private. Help Give Hope receives no government assistance.
Fun facts: Since 2006 HGH has given away 4,544 Bikes, over 600 twin beds to children who did not have a bed, 82 cribs, 133 Kitchen tables.
