About the Helping Hands Fund
Helping Hands is an Educational Fund for SAMM, San Antonio Metropolitan Ministries, Inc and Haven for Hope. Our primary objective is to empower people to help themselves through education.
Helping Hands provides financial support for training and academic scholarships that enable some residents of San Antonio Metropolitan Ministries (SAMM) and Haven for Hope to become self-reliant. Our overhead is 0% - every dollar contributed goes to the recipients.
The Fund has already provided more than 200 individuals with the financial help to pursue educational goals. Scholarship awards are made directly from contributions to the Fund or from an endowment that is being grown. An emergency fund also finances obstacles in the path of those trying to become self-sufficient.
