Residents in Grayson County

at or below poverty level

Did you know

There are approximately 133,000 residents in Grayson County with 19,000 men, women and children living at or below the poverty level? The issue is that while Grayson County has many organizations that provide support services & programs to those in need, many of these organizations and services are not well connected, and the general public is not aware of the resources available to them. Heart of a Matter Ministries’ mission is to “bring meaningful change to humanity”.

We are doing this by

Working as advocates and mentors to connect people in our community to the existing support, services, and resources needed to meet their immediate and long-term needs while building circles of support.

Providing appropriate services, programs, & solutions to those seeking meaningful change.

Uniting and activating the body of Christ; growing mission-specific outreach teams that are passionate about serving others, and working to unite existing resources and services to develop efficiency in how we serve those in need.

Developing and maintaining a unique community resource database website that allows other ministries and public services to give information on their services and programs, connect and work together and support each other; making the circle of support for those needing assistance much stronger and more efficient.

Support Services & Programs 

Our focus and goal right now is the growth and development of our programs and services. From Job Skill Training to Transitional Housing, we have a big vision that only God himself can see through to completion. Here is a list of all our current projects, programs, and initiatives that we are working on.

The Community Resource Launched!

Our first major initiative was to get an online database of all available organizations, programs, and services available in the Texoma area up and running. The goal of this website is that someone can go there to find all available assistance in the area they need help in, whether that is food assistance, counseling, or even medical and dental assistance. 

Advocacy, Mentoring, & Counseling 
We believe that a strong circle of support is important for living a meaningful and purpose-filled life. When an individual is surrounded by healthy relationships, equipped with proper tools and supported by loved ones, everyday hurdles become less challenging. Our compassionate and well-trained mentors & advocates will be the foundation in building a healthy circle of support for our clients
Life Enrichment Program

For many, the difference between poverty and a meaningful and purpose-filled life is knowledge and training. Through partnering with local colleges and businesses, we will equip people with a GED and life skills to secure employment.

Services we are developing:

  • GED Completion
  • Computer Literacy Skills
  • Tradesman Apprenticeships
  • Urban Farming/Greenhouse Gardens/Aquaponics Farming skills
  • Culinary/Food Service Skills, Butchery and Ranching
  • Early Childhood Education
The Creators Studio

The Creators Studio is a space using the simplicity of arts and crafts to bring creativity and beauty to the environment, community and to each other. Creative art expression can bring joy, health, and well-being as individuals work with their hands, mind, and spirit through a whole health life mission.

The goal of this program is to give people the opportunity to try different activities that involve creative art expression.

Hope & Restoration Program
Participants in this program are compassionately guided through an assessment of past struggles, and review helpful options leading them to a future of living a meaningful and purpose-filled life. These options include recovery classes, anger management programs, substance abuse recovery, men’s and women’s issues, budgeting, GED assistance, TRADE skills, resume development, employment preparation, and job searching assistance, and more.
Veterans Services

Our Veterans gave there all defending us, ensuring we can live in the best nation on earth. Often times they get out of the military and lack the support and help needed to integrate back into civilian life. We aim to provide assistance for veterans and their families by:

  • Helping them obtain benefits and services through the VA and other government agencies.
  • Providing outreach services to disabled veterans, job training, and more.
Options – Aging Out Youth Program
Many youths suffering from homelessness face a day to day struggle to survive which can lead to physical and emotional harm. Many have experienced family abuse, violence, rejection, sex trafficking and instability that led to their homelessness. We work with homeless and street-involved youth to help them seek stability, restore hope and find purpose. In the Options program, youth will build a circle of support, leading them to a future of living a meaningful and purpose-filled life.
Senior Citizen Services

We assist seniors in receiving support to obtain affordable and permanent housing. Senior Citizens often find themselves unable to handle the rising cost of living and go without needed medical care due to affordability. Our Senior Citizen Program will help obtain affordable permanent housing, assist in filing for eligible benefits and prepare them to face the challenges of living on a fixed income.

Overcomers Services

We serve clients to help them achieve a stable life and move toward independent living. The Overcomers Program supports residents who may have slight mental or physical disabilities and are unable to work. The Overcomers Program assists participants with basic needs and guides them in applying for disability. Our compassionate advocates help Overcomers achieve stability and move toward independent living by managing their fixed income.

Family Services

Compassionately guiding families through an assessment of past struggles, review helpful options leading them to a future of living a meaningful and purpose-filled life. Participants will be guided by a mentor to reach success through a series of structured Life Skills courses, GED assistance, TRADE skills, resume development, employment preparation, job searching assistance, budgeting, and more. Working in collaboration with Family Services to build up circles of support for the Foster children and families in our community.
