About Us

What We Do

We are a community based organization serving and supporting our neighbors with their emergency basic needs.

Our Mission

To demonstrate the love of Christ and to minister to needs both physical and spiritual as we assist those who live among us.

Our History

Heart and Hand House was created as a mission project of the Evangelical United Brethren Church in 1965. The EUB Church merged with the Methodist Church to form the United Methodist Church in 1968. The United Methodist Church developed Charleston District Outreach Ministries, later known as Community Development Outreach Ministries (CDOM). The two mission projects were merged and the name was changed to Heart + Hand Outreach Ministries in 2017. Heart + Hand Outreach Ministries is the mission project of the Midland South District of the West Virginia Annual Conference of The United Methodist Church. We partner with most of the churches in our service areas to improve the living conditions of those in need.

The community supports their neighbors through Heart + Hand by volunteering, providing donations of food, clothing, furniture, housewares, and monetary assistance.

We thank those that support us financially: United Methodist Foundation of WV, United Way of Central West Virginia, The Greater Kanawha Foundation, the City of South Charleston, local churches, businesses, and the caring residents that make all of this possible.
