It all started when GOD spoke to Wilhelmina twice in HIS voice and said “FEED THE PEOPLE” while she was sleeping. The first time GOD spoke to her, she was not obedient because she was working a full-time job and thought that she was too busy. The second time GOD spoke to her, she was retired and decided that this time she better be obedient. At 2a.m. December 10, 2010, she got out of bed, went to her computer, she asked GOD what should she name the organization and the Spirit quickened in her to name it HELP; she questioned “help who”? GOD answered and said…”use the acronyms” and from there Helping Every Living Person was born and Incorporated as a Not-for-Profit 501 (C) 3 Public Charity.
So, since December 2010 we are consistent in going out monthly at 12 noon on second Sunday to NW 10th Avenue and 79th Street and serve a mid-day hot home cooked meal, ice cold drinks, donated clean clothes, shoes and personal hygiene items to some of our less fortunate neighbors. Although, we are not a church…we are still a Ministry that reads them Bible scriptures, the Daily Word, we join hands in fellowship and pray.
It is our mission statement to lovingly remain obedient and carry out GOD’s Will that’s in HIS Word: Matthew 25:35 says: For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you brought ME together with yourselves and entertained and lodged me. Matthew 25:36 says: For I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me and ministering care, I was in prison and you came to see me. Matthew 40 says: And the KING will reply to them, Truly…I tell you, in so far as you did it, for one of the least of these, you did it for me.
We presently serve anywhere from 50 to 75 people which includes children and adults on a given basis without discrimination. We are soon to start a scholarship program that will promote the need of advanced education to enhance the lives of our children.
H.E.L.P also provides Community Service hours to volunteers ages 16 and over.
