Our Needs

Helping Hands depends on the funding from our natural base of support - local residents and businesses.
Help us continue to be the community's safety net and lend a hand up for our neighbors experiencing a crisis. Please consider making a financial gift. Your one-time or monthly gift of $25, $50, $100, $500, $1,000 or $5,000 can make all the difference to our Food Pantry, to our Emergency Assistance program, to our Health Center - and to struggling families. Your support allows us to provide life-giving services each year to Rockwall County women, children and men that are experiencing a short-term crisis or disaster. Thank you for helping provide shelter from the storms, food during lean times and a medical home to help keep our community healthy.

"I was at my breaking point. I had exhausted all of my resources. Had cars repossessed, eviction notices, past due notices, food prices, and not to mention gas prices were all hitting at once. I searched for options before me and my family were out on the street. My husband and I had worked hard to work towards being able to provide for our family, but it seemed any money earned was just not enough and the bills kept piling up. I discovered helping hands after searching online for help for bill and was able to find the Helping Hand place. I reached out to their office and explained our situation and was able to have complete an application for assistance. Once I submitted the application, they assured me I would receive the status the next day. The next morning, I received a notification I would receive help and I got help towards my rent. I was able to catch up on some of my bills which was a huge relief. Helping Hand provided help when options were next to none."                                                                                  - Lindsey, Assistance and Referral Client
