Good Morning America!
As Everyone walks into their Individual Future of yet another year, please remember to Visit, See, Love, and Actually Reach Out and Hug Those That are Near and Dear To You. Please spend quality time with those Whom You Highly Regard In Your Hearts... Artificial Intelligence is a Wonderful Tool when seeking your Loved Ones Out and Making Contact with Those You haven't seen in years or are trying to help from a distance.... But Please Do Not EVER Forget that Human Contact and Interaction is a Gift From God. More and more with Recent Generations it’s Being Lost To Machines... Help!ComeHome!, No matter how long it Takes, tries to use that Vehicle which was here in the Beginning Of Mankind To Help Countless Souls In Need... Actual Love Through Human Contact... That Which Seems Tedious is actually the way Normal Life is and was meant and shall always Be Held As The Perfect Way for Us... God Bless Everyone No Matter Which Way You Choose or Have Chosen... If you choose The Robots God Bless You, Or The Way It Was In The Beginning, God Bless One and All... You Are In Our Thoughts, Hearts, And Prayers… Amen

REMEMBERING AT ALL TIMES THE PLIGHT OF THE WEARY AND DOWNTRODDEN IN AMERICA...

Good Afternoon One and All,

Thank God for Anyone who has The Blessing of Being surrounded by Loved Ones, Having a Roof over Your Heads, and Food on Your Tables Every Day of The Year, Especially During Your Seasonal Celebrations... Some Americans aren't that Blessed and Must Depend on The Kindness of Others Because ofBeing Handed a Horrible Set of Circumstances Through Their Fate.... This is how some of our Beloved American Family Who Are Still Reeling From Natural Disasters are Living Through These Times... in Tent Cities... Thank God For The Patient Love of The Panama City Police, The Love of The Non Profit Samaritan's Purse, The Love Of Pastor Andrews of Panama City and Trisha Brown From Tallahassee Florida Who Represents The Florida Poor People's Campaign Assoc. God Bless Them and Countless Others... 😔🙏🏾

Take Care and God Bless

WISHING OUR AMERICAN FAMILY THE BEST AT ALL TIMES.....

Never forget the Blessing of being on American Soil.... and whether you have a lot or a little Thank God you are not in a country such as this trying to live and celebrate anything❤️ Please remember our own citizens of natural disasters!!

HCH TRAVELING THROUGH SOUTHERN AMERICA AND HURRICANE AFFECTED AREAS

Good Afternoon,
The Charity has been working in areas of the US ravaged by Hurricanes. Here, we have given our Love, our Time, our Tithes, and a Truck Load of Supplies. The Aftermath, Clean-up, and Rebuilding is just in its Infancy Stages. It’s Truly Heartbreaking... Many People take so much for granted. You never know what a Day Might Bring as we each walk in Our Lives Before The Lord... anyone could find themselves facing a Tragedy such as this... you just don't know.... We will dedicate our next posts to our American Family affected in these areas... The Press brings so much to its viewers and readers, Thank God, but there's nothing like the Naked Eye, hearing stories, giving hope, and drying Tears along The Journey in The Name of The Great King...

God Bless and Take Care

WORKING TOGETHER WITH THE PINE STREET INN!

Good Evening!
As this year winds down, many people find themselves without homes, jobs, a car, their health, and the list goes on and on. Nonprofits and Charities are now needed more than ever before. Every year, HCH partners with various organizations but none makes quite an impact in New England like The Pine Street Inn in Boston, which Aids 1000's of Americans every year. Here are some memories from when we recently worked together with their Volunteers! God Bless and Take Care... Special Thanks to Terry Flower, Darla Dee Gould, Alice Derochemont Richardson, Allen Ramsay, Mark Shelton, Sarah Cooper, Lynnette Nicholas (me lol), Tony Peppers, Karen Howe, Carolyn Thomas, and Coleen Mayo and our Wonderful Chairwoman: Ellie Mayo

HCH and Burlington Stores

Good Evening, America!

For those of you who don't know, Help!ComeHome! has been chosen to become a Community Partner of Burlington Stores (formerly Burlington Coat Factory). Burlington Stores provide both new and gently used clothing to the nonprofit organizations with whom they partner; HCH is now qualified to receive donations from the 524 nonprofit organizations within their charity network.

This new partnership will help us to continue in our mission to meet the needs of the homeless, destitute, and afflicted in the Name of Jesus.

Burlington Stores have already given us a literal truckload of new winter clothing items, kitchen supplies, and other assorted merchandise to distribute in our annual winter outreach efforts. Many of these items will go directly to hurricane victims in Florida and the Carolinas.

Take a look at some pictures of the HCH crew at the Burlington Store opening and ribbon cutting ceremony :-) Many thanks to all of our volunteers!!

Shout out to Mark Shelton, Allen Ramsay, Michelle I. Mayo, Coleen Mayo, Larae Cantave, Darla Dee-Gould, Alice DeRochemont, Shayna DeRochemont, Terry Flower, Lynnette Nicholas, Karen Howe, Renee Anderson, Carolyn Thomas, Mike Damour, Kevin Murphy, Matthew Walsh, Terry Risden, Evon Cooper, Sarah Cooper, and of course our chairwoman, Ellie Mayo.

MEMORIES FROM CALIFORNIA LEG OF JOURNEY PART ONE! =-)

Good Morning,
HCH would like to continue to share our memories from 2018. Here are some from our travels through California, where we met many new organizations and partnered with some as well! Many Members of our American Family helped along the way in Jesus's Name... Special Thanks and Love to Darla Dee Gould, Lynnette Nicholas, Matthew Walsh and Dear Friend William, all of our New Friends, as well as Lydia Demi and The Lovely Nina DeRochemont who filled all hearts with Hope and Peace in The Journey.

Good Morning America! As The Charity prepares to depart from New England to embark on another Journey into our Dear Great Land helping to fill a never ending void, we now go forward to help those who are facing The Judgement from Florence and now Michael. We have our heads bowed in prayer for all and are eternally grateful for all Non-profits and Charities from The Greatest to the Smallest who have taken up The Cross to bring Love, Hope, and Life to those who are Fallen. In Jesus Name we come... Truly... Amen

God Bless xo

BEING MINDFUL OF THOSE WHO SUFFER EVERYDAY!!

Good Afternoon America!

We have so many in our prayers at this time, especially those who have been hit by The Judgement of Hurricane Florence and Her Fury... our hearts go out to all with great sorrow... Thankfully, here in The US, there are countless charities, nonprofits, and beautiful citizens that rally to help most of our American Family when needed!!! Help!ComeHome! will also be helping and partnering with sister charities and organizations to aid in a NEVER ENDING and Desperately Needful Cause... Wherever you may be, if you have a little extra to spare, it can make a HUGE difference in the life of a person with nothing!!

God Bless and Take Care!

The Dire Importance of Jesus and His Love

Why is the mission of Help!ComeHome! so important? This article (“Americans Want to Believe Jobs Are the Solution to Poverty. They’re Not.”) from The New York Times Magazine gives some answers. HCH and organizations like it will only become more relevant as American poverty becomes increasingly inescapable.

Passing judgement without having all of the facts can only lead to separations, divisive groups, and prejudice everywhere. Please try to follow the example of Jesus and His Charity in Brotherly Kindness. We try. Thank you.

HELPING OUR LOCAL FAMILIES IN NEW ENGLAND! :-)

Good Evening America!
I pray all is well for many... there are those in every Community that sometimes fall on hard times and must count on The Kindness of Charities... Remember The Unwritten Law Of Kindness From Above as we come into The Fall and Winter Months... if you have a little extra, help your Community by giving to your local Charities Nationwide...They are a Godsend for so many... In recent weeks, Help!ComeHome! has been back in New England and is Partnering with local Organizations to help feed and clothe Our Dear Citizens... One of those Non-Profits is The Seabrook Community Action Program which has Tirelessly helped 100's of Folks... A special Thank you to Larae Cantave, Naara Cantave, Johannah Cantave, Tommy Caswell, Michelle Cowles, George (Bear)Freeman, Mark Shelton, Shawn Day,Karen Howe, Michelle Mayo Impey, Lynnette Nicholas, Carolyn Thomas, Raymond Harris, Coleen Mayo and our Chairwoman, Alison(Ellie) Mayo!!

THE JOURNEY IN PICTURES CONTINUES.....

Good Afternoon!!

As we previously posted, Help!ComeHome! has made one of the most Life-Changing and Heart-Moving trips across our Great Land... In hidden and sometimes Forgotten small-town America, we introduced our Organization and brought Hope and Aid to the Weary... Because it was such a long Journey, we will tell it in pictures... One of the Most Memorable parts was the time spent in Oregon. The Chairwoman, Ellie Mayo and one of our Field Techs, Alice Derochemont Richardson, have a Beloved Childhood Friend there, Bobby Baker! A Beautiful and Tearful Reunion... Thank God for the Hospitality of His Amazing Wife, Leann! Our Prayers and Our Love are Forever with Them, Especially at this time when Bobby just underwent a life-saving medical Procedure!!

HCH Benefit Concert a Success in Jesus's Mighty Name!

Good morning, America!

Here at HCH we've been relishing in the memories of our very first major fundraising event. As team leader, I had been working with a dedicated team of volunteers, planning for, and anticipating the event for months. To see everything come to fruition has we had envisioned was a true blessing from the Great King Above. 

Last Tuesday, residents from the Greater Boston Area and beyond came to Bemis Hall in Lincoln for an evening of music performed by HCH volunteers Thomas Cooper, Sarah Joyce Cooper (myself), Roland Clark, Darla-Dee Gould, and pianists Rachel Goodwin and Tae Kim. Featuring a variety of selections and genres, the program reflected the diversity of the individuals and communities HCH serves on a regular basis throughout the country. All proceeds from the concert have been set aside to support HCH projects throughout the country and Navajo Reservation.

The concert would not have been a success without the many volunteers who gave time, energy, and heart to make Tuesday night possible. We'd like to offer our deepest thanks to Michelle I. Mayo, Mark Shelton, Coleen Egan, Lynnette Nicholas, Matthew Walsh, Alice Richardson, Darla Dee-Gould, Roland Clark, Thomas Cooper, Rachel Goodwin, Allen Ramsay, Carolyn Thomas, and Bear Freeman. Of course without Chairwoman and HCH founder Alison "Ellie" Mayo, whose prayerful guidance has directed this charity since its conception, none of us would have the privilege or opportunity to serve in such a worthy cause.

Many thanks to the Boston Collaborative for partnering with HCH, helping cover production costs, helping us meet deadlines, and spreading the word. We are so grateful for the crucial role you played in making this concert happen.  

Take care and Godspeed!

Sarah Joyce Cooper

A WORD FROM THE CHAIRWOMAN...

FullSizeRender21.jpg

Good Morning!
I can only pray this message finds everyone safe and well... This year sadly has come with great sorrow, as our Team has witnessed many loved ones who were seniors, family members, as well as old friends pass on in The Lord Jesus... many parts of our Agenda were postponed as a result... at this time, Help!ComeHome! has been traveling in The most western part of America and will be sending updates on The Journey... please remember to visit and call those you love, for human contact is God's Special Gift to Mankind. Besides this, most importantly, no one knows what The Future Holds... a robot is good if you aren't able to immediately see someone because of illness or distance... but, if you are able, get out and see your loved ones and old friends before it's too late.... God Bless .♥️

 

REMEMBERING AMERICA'S VETERANS: PAST AND PRESENT

Good Afternoon!

Every Memorial Day, our nation takes time to remember those who have sacrificed their lives for the Precious Freedoms we all hold dear. At HCH, we believe it's equally important acknowledge those who remain with us in addition those who have passed on.

No matter what day it is, we remember these special Americans at all times, whether through quiet prayer or through any of our service projects for veterans and families of those who have lost loved ones in war.

Some take our freedoms for granted without thinking about the fact that someone SELFLESSLY put their life on the line for all that is right before God without even knowing ANY of us!!! Help!ComeHome!  treats everyday as some treat Memorial Day.......No matter where The Dear Lord Takes Us in our Travels, we try to help their Cause and fight against the plight of Countless Americans.....Let us bow our Heads and give thanks and prayers for all of Our Forces... Past and Present... want to see how you can help? https://nvf.org/veteran-resources/ Take Care and God Bless!

CHARITY SUMMER UPDATE IN JESUS NAME

Help!ComeHome! has a busy summer Agenda ahead, which will include traveling across the country to aid our American Family, helping out Communities and Fellow Charities with Water Distribution, hosting our very first big Fundraiser in Massachusetts, setting up our Traveling Food Pantries in various areas, and many other endeavors... In these times, we need to be united and stand together in Love in these matters... Please, if you find you have a little extra in your budget, help out your local non-profits and charities, for they all do a Blessed, Endless, and Selfless Work... One never knows... one day you may find you need them...

Thank You and God Bless!

The Water Project Continues

The Water Project is well underway as HCH members and volunteers continue to distribute clean drinking water to families throughout the US and Navajo Nation without access to this precious resource.

We'd like to thank Aaron Mayo, Terry Flower, Charles Kimball, Heather Paige Wolfe, Darla and Dana Gould, and many, many others who have all graciously supported the Water Project over the past few years. 

The Environmental Working Group has compiled a database that allows users across America to find out how much their water is contaminated according to 30 million state water records now accessible in one place.

Last year, USA today reported that an estimated 63 million Americans have been exposed to unsafe drinking water over the past decade.

Just last month, Trenton Water Works, a New Jersey-based company that provides running water to Trenton, Lawrenceville, and surrounding towns, issued a warning to its customers informing them that its water did not meet industry standards of purity. Warnings like these will only continue to become more commonplace.

The need for clean water is growing; access to this precious resource continues to become more limited. 

Any family or community we can help protect from the dangers of contaminated water is significant. Please consider making a donation to The Water Project Today. 

Take a look at some of our Water Project volunteers in action below!
