Mission 911, Breaking the Bondage of Homelessness

MHM is proud to partner with organizations that share our mission and organizational objective of delivering healthcare and social services to the least served in the South Texas region. By strengthening other organizations’ capacity to provide services, we achieve our overarching goal of increasing access to care.

In the Coastal Bend area, MHM’s investment has been particularly significant. To date, MHM has invested $5.7 million in the region, which includes Aransas, Atascosa, Bee, Karnes, Live Oak, McMullen, Nueces, San Patricio and Wilson counties.  

Mission 911, a faith-based mission dedicated to empowering people in poverty in the Corpus Christi area, is among these partners. A funded partner since 2007, Mission 911 performs outreach to citizens struggling with poverty through providing shelter, meals, transportation, vocational training and a place to worship.

“No one has a uninterrupted flow of joy, peace and happiness in their life. We all have our peaks and valleys, our ups and downs. It is true the measure of a person is how he or she handles being in those valleys or handles a crisis in one's life. The Greek word crisis means a turning point for good or bad (evil) and a time for making decisions or judgments; an opportunity for positive change.” explains Tony Reyes, Founder and Executive Director of Mission 911.
