Arms of Hope

Arms of Hope is a Christian care organization that assists children and single-mother families in need. Residents at Medina Children's Home (20 miles from our KCC building) are a part of our community. Through its Residential Child Care, Together, College and Career, Right Start, and Outreach Ministry programs, Arms of Hope is committed to providing a safe haven and Christian environment for children and single-mother families by helping them avoid homelessness, poverty, abuse and neglect and by leading them to lives of sustaining and productive citizenship. The residents attend public school, nearby universities or trade schools and participate in school, campus and KCC church activities. AOH is a focal point of our ministry at Kerrville Church of Christ.

Heart to Heart

Designed to empower moms with older children to support moms with children in 8th grade and younger.

Experienced moms mentor mothers with younger children and serve as Christian role models. Meetings are generally the second Tuesday evening of every month during the school year in the home of Donna Houston. Dinner and fellowship is followed by a time of prayer and devotion. If you are a young mom with small children, we would love to have you join us for our next meeting. For more information on times and dates of upcoming get-togethers, please email Donna Houston.
