About MORE THAN A HANDOUT

Location:

7757 CEDARBROOK AVE, PHILADELPHIA, PA 19150, US

Mission Statement

Our mission is to empower the homeless, hungry, and hovering (working poor) to become self-sustaining and more productive residents in their communities-at-large.

Description

More Than A Handout (MTH), Inc. was established as a pioneer life-changing organization to serve communities-at-large by assisting the Homeless, Hungry, and Hovering (Working Poor) by providing expanded essential human services.

To accomplish these goals we form partnerships, create programs and build projects which provides our target clients with education, encouragement, and everyday essentials to help rebuild the lives of those persons suffering from systemic or generational poverty. We provide the following free, fast, and ineluctable services:

  • Advocacy (Public Support)
  • Basic Needs (Food, Shelter, Clothing, Income, etc.)
  • Community Resources Information (Local, State, Federal, etc.)

The name "More than a Handout" was inspired by a homeless man when he stated to the Founder that "he needed more than a handout". The homeless man helped the Founder to understand that food and clothing giveaways were not permanent solutions for changing lives but just temporary fixes for everyday basic needs.
