Loaves & Fishes serves meals every day in Harlingen and in Raymondville. The shelter is open 365 days per year. We address the most pressing effects of homelessness and poverty in our communities.

Serving meals and providing shelter are just a couple of the  ways we address the causes and consequences of poverty.


Many people have to choose between eating and healthcare. Our free clinic eliminates that difficult choice for many in our community.

Our Community Health Nurse provides basic healthcare free of charge for clients in Harlingen and in Raymondville.

Thanks to our collaboration with Culture of Life Ministries, physicians and nurse practitioners are available to provide the care people need.

For many people the real solution is a place to live. Rapid Re-housing and Homeless Prevention services get and keep people in housing, providing stability for people at vulnerable times.

The real solution for many of our clients is a job. The New Hope Job Shop places about a dozen people per month in gainful employment.

Many young families struggle because of the cost of diapers. Thank you, First Methodist Church—Harlingen, for remembering the babies on Mother’s Day.
