Harvest Hands Ministries is a conservative, non-denominational ministry upholding traditional Biblical values. It is a 501 (C)(3) non-profit organization founded by Garry and Terese Mathewson in August 1999. The Mathewsons have served as missionaries to Mexico since 1997 and the ministry headquarters is located in Westfield, NY..
Since its inception, Harvest Hands Ministries has sought to share God’s love by meeting the spiritual and physical needs of the hungry and oppressed people in the Juarez area. This has been done through feeding programs, a student sponsorship program, and the distribution of clothing, medical care and personal items.
In addition, HHM has supported local churches with Sunday school materials, pastoral support, and Vacation Bible School programs. Currently, HHM has completed construction of a children's shelter, Resplandor De Vida, which is a home to 30 needy and impoverished children. Work is underway on additional living facilities which will double its capacity.
