True North Helping Hands is a humanitarian society. Our purpose is to serve the less fortunate people of Mexico by:
Building homes -- All people deserve a roof over their head that sheds the rain and allows for warmth in winter.
Building schools -- Education is vital in helping people compete for the jobs that will give them a better standard of living. Schools have been our primary focus to date.
Building hope -- Our hope is that the service we do will build hope in the people we work with. Our hope is in God. We believe that because of that hope we should serve others.
