Emergency Services & Disaster Relief

The HIM Center is a leader in the North Texas community and does respond to emergency community needs such as natural disasters, or life altering events such as the government shutdown of 2019 which had thousands of furloughed workers in need of temporary emergency support.

HIM Food Bank plays a key role in responding to emergencies that impact the city and our nation.

As one of the largest food banks in the county, the scale of our normal operations – which include providing millions of pounds of food to more than 60 food assistance programs throughout North Texas – creates the potential for the Food Bank to provide significant aid to people affected by disasters.

HIM Center supports the work of many other organizations in the region. Organizations like
Common Ground, Rush Creek Church Compassion Center, and Backpack Meals for Kids in community efforts of providing hungry children with weekend backpacks (during school year) and summer snack packs. These programs feed approx. 20,000 children in the Mansfield, Kennedale, and Arlington and Fort Worth Independent School Districts.
