What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

TTM's works tirelessly to combat Hunger and Homelessness in Southern California. Our boots on the ground outreach approach goes directly to those who are living on streets. They suffer with a plethora of afflictions. TTM's Help the Homeless and openARMs Veterans programs bring Real Solutions to Real Problems. But without financial support and other resources to assist the homeless and our veterans, it would be extremely difficult to accomplish our mission.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

openARMs veterans Program

Veterans returning from war are often left confused, traumatized and tragically left homeless. We embrace our honored heroes by presenting them with a heartfelt care package and critical assistance with local resources.

How It Works:

1) A Specially Trained Tender Touch Ministries Volunteer locates a veteran in need outside of facilities in which they have been rejected due to overcrowding or insufficient resources.

2) The veteran is given a hug, verbal “thank you” for their bravery and a salute.

3) Appreciation letter (view here), bible, journal, crossword puzzle, granola bars, hot chocolate packet, crackerjacks, playing cards, assorted candies and water bottle.

4) Verbal, and when appropriate, hands-on assistance with Homeless Veterans Resource Center Information (view here) — connecting them to our brother and sister charities that specialize in providing assistance to veterans in need including PTSD counseling, medical, employment and housing.
