Is a Regional Resource Center. We have been helping transform the lives of our neighbors in poverty. We have done so in collaboration with churches, agencies, sponsors, and ordinary people who know first hand that each of us has the power to help change a life. Our process is designed to foster long-term, meaningful Christ centered relationships between people in need and people who are called to help…family to family, neighbor to neighbor, a community united to end situational and generational poverty in our hometown.
Bringing help and hope to our neighbors in need. HCDBM administers programs, manages donations, mobilizes community resources and trains Churches, Mentors, and volunteers from more than 60 ministry partners and agencies who deliver food, clothing, furniture, diapers, school supplies, children’s books, and bibles, to struggling families in an eight-county area. Because every family registers their sizes and special needs with us, our support is highly targeted and no donation is ever wasted.
Transforming a life takes more than a meal. Along with food and household supplies, Mentors bring compassion, encouragement, dignity, God’s love, and a profound sense of hope to every family they visit. HCDBM also provides vital services such as mentoring for at-risk youth in the Hill Country, a children’s literacy program, special assistance for babies and seniors, holiday food and gift programs, and connections to other local resources that can help to address each family’s unique needs.

StandByMe was created in 2006 to support at-risk youth in our community in search of support, guidance and God’s love.
Our mission is to help transform the lives of Texas Hill Country kids through 101 Christian mentoring relationships.
StandByMe is a mentoring program that WORKS by matching a Christian adult with a student who has asked for a mentor. StandByMe has an incredible track record of success as we have seen God transform the lives of the students and the mentors alike! A unique aspect of SBM is that families of the children in SBM, benefit from all the resources of HCDBM Family Mentoring Ministry. We believe that when our families are strong, so are the kids!
We hold firmly to a 6 pillar framework that leads to successful mentoring:
- Case Management - Ongoing match support and training of Mentors
- Summer Camp - Christian camp opportunities for Mentees
- Summer Leadership Academy - A Summer program teaching leadership skills
- Enrichment - Life skill opportunities for matches
- Celebrations - Mentor and Mentee recognition and appreciation events
- Family Support - Strong families, strong kids! Families are eligible for HCDBM Family Mentoring Resources
