We are a non-profit organization serving the poor since 2004.
Helping Hands Assistance Program provides temporary assistance with basic needs to families, individuals and seniors in financial crisis. We give a "helping hand-up" by providing groceries, fresh produce, fresh baked goods, clothing, household items, personal hygiene, infant supplies and referrals to other community services.
We aim to give support and educate people through difficult times while transitioning them toward self-sufficiency.
(achieving self sufficiency through integrated services and training)
Our signature program is for people who find themselves facing unexpected financial hardships due to current economic conditions, illness, age, domestic violence, or divorce. Volunteers assist members in navigating the maze of available services while filling the need for basic necessities. If a member has reached their full potential after 90 days and utilized all aspects of the program they will then be graduated after completing an evaluation. If basic needs continue to be a struggle, the member will be placed on our "Emergency Food Program" to receive supplemental food and other basics 4x per year.
Myrna is one of our I.N.S.I.S.T. members who volunteered to helped us collect 44,630 lbs of food at the annual "Stamp out Hunger" food drive.
