Editor's Notes

Did you know you can print Our "Quick Topics" section and carry it with you for easy reference.  It currently contains over 150 topics, listing goods and services that are needed by persons that are homeless and in and out of jail/prison.  Most Topics list the complete address, phone, fax email address and web site address of those Service Providers that can offer help.  Within the next couple of weeks HRH will have a smaller version, listing individual Service Providers for your particular needs.  These information booklets will be made available to the jails, prisons, pastors, case workers, and other Service Providers as "Pass Outs" for their clients.  For more information on this upcoming service, please give us a call, or keep checking your Weekly Newsletter.

HRH has approved Our Board of Directors and are looking forward to working with them.
