“How can I help MH&HO Ministries?”

We’re glad you asked!

 

FINANCIAL DONATIONS:

MH&HO Ministries requires funding to provide emergency response and to meet the ongoing needs of those we serve such as funds to purchase tents, sleeping bags, phone cards, bus tokens/vouchers, laundry cards, meals, meal cards, haircuts, identification fees (photo ID, Birth Certificates, Social Security), prescription drug assistance and work-clothing/boots.

We also require funding for ongoing operational costs (e.g., monthly storage facility rent, consumable feeding supplies, website hosting, accounting and audit services, registered agent fees, liability insurance, post office box rental and recurring state registration fees). MH&HO is Tax Exempt under IRS code 501(c)(3) so your donations are tax deductable as allowed under the teax code.
