The goal is to provide clients with the tools to achieve self-sustainability for themselves and their family.

The ministry served 800 clients in its first year, and today serves an average of 2,100 clients per month, with nearly half of them children. STH operates one of the largest community food pantries in the area for Gary residents, which provides personal hygiene items and includes a clothes closet for women.
