To help ensure the success of young students at the new school year, Heart-n-Hand Ministries, Inc. provides backpacks and necessary school supplies for less fortunate Belton School District families at a Back to School fair, in early August.

Going to school with new supplies instills self-esteem and social acceptance in children. This serves our main goal: Committing to the empowerment of poor and homeless individuals in the Cass County, Mo. community. We strive to meet the needs of the whole person — Spiritual, Physical, and Emotional, so that they may become independent and self-sufficient.

The success of this Back to School Fair is only realized by the generosity of the Cass County community volunteers. Volunteers who assist with stocking, organizing and cleaning inventory.  Generous donations from area agencies, businesses and individuals provide the the essential items for the School Fair. We are very thankful for their help because we could not operate without it. We receive no government support in our administration, and we are not a United Way agency. We depend completely on donations from individuals, groups, businesses, foundations churches and grants.

If you would like to volunteer or donate to this specific outreach, please contact us at (816) 322-1133.


The annual Back to School Fair is available to any elementary child and his/her family in early August.
